Feng Shui in the Kitchen and Bath

One modern home in Hong Kong took all the buzz about eco-friendly materials and health-conscious kitchens and baths and took it to a new/old level: Feng Shui.

“It’s a modern and classical Scandinavian design – clean and minimal,” said designer Nelson Chow of NC Design & Architecture.

This flowing look starts with balance and harmony: like doubles in every room, seating conducive to conversation and fixtures that point all the light in one spot. For this 2,700-square-foot space, a sense of peace starts at the entrance and leads through to a living and dining area, an open kitchen and an open bathroom. A neutral palette of consistent materials in the three areas diminishes the notion of boundaries and maximizes volume.

Keeping with Feng Shui theory, every wall pane is curved, from the glass windows to the walls and fixtures. A wooden feature wall (secretly a storage space for appliances) moves from the living room to the kitchen.

“The feature wall graduates from gun metal gray in the living room to light ash in the kitchen, corresponding to the differing lighting levels in each area while creating a playful drama that draws in natural light to illuminate the apartment,” said Chow.

Branching off from the main area is a seamless corridor that frames a sculptural freestanding bathtub. After this partial view, occupants enter a small bathroom covered in blue hexagonal wall tiles. Three large, artificial skylights cast light into the living, dining and bathroom areas.

“The graphical patterns of the wall tiles and warm tonal graduations together form a contemporary yet unique design that maximizes volume,” said Chow.
