Transformer In the City

Clifton recently completed an interior design project in which he transformed an ordinary flat at Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong into a smart and flexible home. Since the apartment is petite, Clifton decides to apply an open-design concept using a sliding wall to create a spacious living space. The owners can divide their communal and private sleeping spaces by closing the sliding wall to secure privacy when needed.
On the other hand, Clifton knocks down the wall between two bedrooms and creates one large bedroom area. This bedroom area is separated from the living area by a flatscreen TV that is mounted on a pole and can flexibly turns around to face the living or bedroom area.

Not only is the bedroom, the kitchen also transforms into a semi-open space near the middle which flows into the living area. As the kitchen area is quite narrow, a full-sized dining table is built into a cabinet to save space. To make use of the limited space in the flat, Clifton creates a raised platform in the bedroom to provide more storage space for the owner. The owner can also use the platform edge as a bench as well.

Besides flexibility, Clifton also emphasize in incorporating energy saving ideas into his designs. For this flat, he used energy-efficient LED lights on the recessed ceilings and minimal light fixtures around the house. The whole interior space gives off a simple and modern ambience as Clifton uses smooth surfaces such as white-stained oak floors and laminated plywood around the house.
