BEFORE


net area: 610 square feet

location: hong kong

owner: a 5-person family = dad + mom + boy + girl + helper


the dream home is to have

  1. max. storage space

  2. an open kitchen

  3. work-from-home space for dad, min 1.2m desk

  4. open plan space for the kids to study and play

  5. japanese style separated bathroom

  6. a private room for the helper

  7. an entrance to buffer between outdoor and indoor

  8. a living room that can fit in a piano and switch playground


the original layout represents one of the most typically illogical living layouts in hk with

  • the legendary 'diamond' shape in kitchen, living room and bedroom

  • two tiny bathrooms

a few modifications in the layout are carried out.

  1. an entrance with storage space is added to convert the irregular shaped living/dining area into a reasonable shape.

  2. the original kitchen is turned into a multifunction room that of maids room and laundry area.

  3. new kitchen is located at the old dining area with a small island to create a mini loop flow.

  4. along the largest window is storage bench for dining and living purpose which also facing the piano and hidden projecting screen.

  5. the two small bedrooms are combined into a big room for kids.

  6. the two small bathrooms are changed into japanese style separate bathroom.

  7. the master room is enlarged to fit the 1.2m desk and 2m full height wardrobe.
