‘Hongkong is one of the most expensive cities when it comes to real-estate and there is a big demand on adaptable interior design. This copper-box is like a suitcase: When the space is in use, the box opens up and when the space is not in use, the box can be fully folded up and all the artworks inside are secured.’
The project describes a space for storing and selling paintings in a tower located at the centre of Hong Kong. Given the program of an infrequently used space, we are introducing a suitcase-like box made out of matte-reflecting copper panels. The box inhabits a sliding drawer for artwork, a cozy couch, a bar, a beamer and a working desk. Leaving the rest of the space in untouched rough concrete, the copper objects capture attention, reflecting natural light in a warm, red tone.
