[Emancipating the Corridor]
This 1800sf weekend retreat in the suburb of Hong Kong has the problems of typical Hong Kong apartments: over-efficient layout with pre-determined demarcation of rooms that don't allow for flexible use; squeezing multiple rooms along a overly dark and elongated corridor, and characterless fit-out 'standards' that tempts you to gut demolish to create waste or accept as is.
The owner's intended use of the apartment as a weekend gathering place renders the original four-bedroom layout functionally obsolete. We approach the project by removing the bedroom walls strategically to allow sunlight to the dark corridor, and at the same time creating a continuous space that flows through the whole apartment. A continuous relief wall that incorporates three concealed doors and a large wardrobe from the living area to the master room opens and closes inconspicuously and thus eliminating the 'multiple-door' effect. This small gesture not only reduces the amount of waste resulting from a complete gut renovation, but also contributing to the free flowing of spaces appropriate for the owner's requirements.
這個位於香港郊區,佔地一千八百平方呎的週末度假屋有著香港公寓典型的問題:佈局過於高效,房間因而被設限,不能靈活使用。多個房間被擠在細長黑暗的走廊,還有那並無特色的「標準」裝修,誘使人浪費地徹底拆除或無奈地原樣接受。 因業主欲將該公寓用作週末聚會場所,故原有的四居室佈局在功能上已不合時宜。我們有策略地除掉臥室牆壁,讓陽光能照進暗黑的走廊,同時建造出個貫通整個公寓的連續空間。一道連續的浮雕牆,包含了三道暗門和一個從起居室到主人房的大衣櫃,能不顯眼地打開和關閉,消除了整個空間的「多門」效應。這種小改動不僅減少了拆卸重塑造成的浪費,還能切合業主的要求,成為一個能自由運用的空間。
