    barker residence
    hong kong

    davidclovers: At eye-level with the top of IFC, the tallest building in Hong Kong, the Barker Residence holds stunning views of Victoria Harbor. The project is the first of a series of projects designed by davidclovers for a developer of residential properties in Hong Kong. The basic approach is to hone in on the most potent areas of the existing layout, and enhance them. At Barker Residence, davidclovers reworks the unit horizontally and vertically using a series of subtly inflected walls and artificially-lit ceilings to bend space around corners and through floors. The design thoughtfully subdues the palatial scale of the flat while delicately intensifying its hidden potentials. The existing vestibule is broken open to the full panorama of the skyscrapers along the “fragrant harbor”, gently combining the living area and entry.

    Subtly twisting walls organize various elements such as cabinetry, fireplace, desk and TV. A stair unfurls to interlock the lower and upper levels. It is washed in an effervescent glow from a custom-designed chandelier above. Previously cave-like bathrooms are thrust into spaces capturing views. The kitchen, bar and dining areas are cracked open and lit above by textured glowing ceilings.
