G7 Apartment – Braemar Hill
G Seven – 1400′ complete renovation at Braemar Hill
G Seven is located in Hilltop, Braemar Hill Hong Kong, the apartment was originally a 2 bedroom layout shown below, the existing plan had the living room directly at the entrance, with a smaller bedroom and bathroom behind a structural wall, on the opposite side was the master bedroom with the kitchen cramped on the side, and the maids room and laundry room at the back of the apartment separated by a long corridor.
We completed gutted the apartment and started over with a new layout to suit the owner, first the living room and study area were moved to the larger side of the apartment which has better open views through the windows and was also closer to the kitchen, the guest bathroom was created at the entrance area using cultured limestone as a feature wall and a mirror wall to extend the space of the dining area. A sliding frosted glass door separates the Bedroom to the other areas, this allows privacy as well as let enough light in during the day into the entrance area. Inside the bedroom, we used the second bedroom as a walk in changing room with ample cupboard and storage space for cloths and other personal items, and the master bathroom located next to the changing room.
Throughout the apartment, we used straight grain Oliver Ash timber on the walls and flooring, the timber gives a warm feeling flowing continuously between the areas, also cladding custom furniture at the study desk, storage bank and living room TV unit. Remote controlled LED lighting and Lutron lighting systems are also installed in the living areas to save on energy and provide better control of all the lighting in the apartment to create different moods. Most of the lighting is concealed and indirect with a few accent lights highlighting the certain areas.
The wood grains continues into the bedroom, which we used to conceal storage, as well as create a dresser with a white marble tabletop, the bed is also constructed with matching materials, with LED surrounding the base creating a floating effect or ambient lighting for those more romantic moments. A pair of Artemide Tolomeo provides extra light if needed for reading at night.
The bathrooms are finished in “Starck” contrast, with cool anthracite floors and dark slate feature wall tiles combined with white Italian Carrera marble and black glass, which gives a modern edge to the design.
The Kitchen is finished with a repetition of grey tiles and concrete tiled floors, which matches the overhead cupboards, keeping light to achieve an airier feeling, however the main feature of the kitchen stays in keeping with the timber tone of the rest of the apartment. The corridor is finished in raw brick tiles and painted grey giving some texture to the otherwise boring space, timber sliding doors on both sides conceal the storage room and the cupboard opposite.
