Winner: Working | Hong Kong | BCI Asia Interior Design Awards 2019
The design project was given by Jeffery Kwok who owned a seventy-eight square meter unit inside Alhambra building, a sixty-year-old building located in Yau Ma Tei near temple street. The unit was the original office for Jeffery’s father, but it had been vacant for years. Jeffrey wanted to share space with his semi-retired father.
Initially, the design plan was splitting the spaces between Jeffrey and Kwok Senior. Unfortunately one month into the design phase, Kwok Senior passed away.
Kwok Senior left two large antique wooden shelves that were his wedding gifts by Jeffrey’s grandfather. Jeffrey wished to keep those two shelves within this small office, as they would represent Kwok Senior’s spirit watching over them.
