Staircase

by Heiman Chan

Project Description


The design is an interplay between contrast and continuity. Located in a high-rise residential building at a hillside neighborhood perching on Hong Kong’s financial district, the apartment is a sanctuary bridged by a “staircase”—a succession of undulating wooden false ceilings that opens from the entrance towards the panoramic window in the living room. Its stair-like form is reminiscent of the steps leading up from the city, yet its warm, wooden colour and texture distinguish itself from the cold, concrete urban jungle. Flowing glass panes are used to separate the living room and kitchen, echoing the staircase motif while invoking a sense of airiness. Earth-tone tiles and walnut cabinet demarcate the bar area, with soft lighting bathing the brushed brass panels on the cabinet in soft radiance, adding a touch of refined opulence to this haven.
