Si­mon Chong found sourc­ing the fur­ni­ture against a tight dead­line to be the big­gest chal­lenge of the project – although the re­sult­ing vi­gnettes speak for them­selves.

加快腳步

Si­mon Chong表示要在短時間內尋找相配的傢具裝飾屬項目最大挑戰,但出色成果的確有目共睹。 in time. “To find all the fur­ni­ture, ac­ces­sories and ma­te­ri­als I res­onated with that would fit the style of the space, and that would be of the right sizes and pro­por­tions with avail­able stock in Hong Kong – that was no easy feat,” he re­calls.

In terms of style, this abode is full of state­ments. The de­signer says he played with a va­ri­ety of el­e­ments, mix­ing and match­ing pieces from the East and West, the old and the new, and the mod­ern and the clas­si­cal. “There was no set aes­thetic,” he says. “I just wanted to cre­ate a mod­ern, com­fort­able home that’s tasteful yet time­less.” The home­own­ers are de­lighted with the re­sults. “When I handed over the home to them, the lady of the house started tear­ing up,” shares Si­mon. “That made me emo­tional too, as there’s no greater sat­is­fac­tion than see­ing a happy client.”

With their hec­tic work sched­ules, the fam­ily cher­ishes spend­ing time at home with each other. The ver­dant out­doors is per­fect for en­ter­tain­ing – the in­door liv­ing room ex­tends out to the gar­den and out­door re­lax­ation area, so large groups can al­ways be ac­com­mo­dated. “It’s very func­tional for their life­style in this re­gard,” ex­plains Si­mon. “They also love trav­el­ling to­gether – go­ing on hol­i­days and bring­ing back cu­rios from their trips – so this ex­pan­sive home cer­tainly has the ca­pac­ity to con­tinue evolv­ing.” //

由於時間緊張,雖則家居設計方面沒有問題,但Si­mon指出最大挑戰在於要在限時內物色所有傢具和材料。他說:「要找齊我心儀的傢具、擺設和材料,而且又要配合家居風格、尺寸比例適中、於香港有售,要滿足這些條件一點也不簡單呢。」

以風格而言,家居大多地方均極具話題性。設計師表示,自己運用了各種不同元素,混搭東西、古今、現代與古典的傢具擺設。「完全沒有任何美學前設。」他補充:「我只想打造一個現代、有品味而經得起時間考驗的舒適之家。」這點他絕對做到,屋主也非常滿意成果。Si­mon感觸地分享道:「把成品交予他們時,女屋主已感動得快要流淚,連我也激動起來,實在沒甚麼比看到客人滿意高興的笑容更有滿足感。」

屋主一家公事繁忙,一有閒暇便愛留在家中相處,室外綠地用作娛樂用途便最適合不過。室內的客廳延伸至花園和戶外的休閒區,可隨時招待大批親朋好友。「這種設計非常適合他們的生活方式。」Si­mon解釋說:「他們喜歡全家一起旅遊,每次都會從外地帶珍品回來,這間大屋絕對還有更多演化的空間和可能。」//
