摩登都会双城记A TALE OF TWO MODERN CITIES
Shanghai and New York are miles apart, but they're like a pair of twin cities in that they both lead economic and fashion trends throughout the globe. The Bund and Manhattan, similarly, are the souls of two cities. They are prosperous, modern and open to the most avant garde lifestyles. They are the pioneers of cities.
This time, designer Fang Lei cooperates with China Resources and brings the essence of Manhattan to the Bound of Bund residences. The effect is astounding — the iconic design along with an array of art works turns the residence into an elegant, avant garde museum.
都市精英对于住宅的要求是，既品质高端，使用功能性强，又别具雅致风韵的艺术气息。为他们做设计，不啻于是对设计师艺术融合力的一场考试。Urban elites are demanding. Take their residences for example, they must have exceptional quality, diversified functions, and be uniquely artistic as well. For designers, it's a unique opportunity to show their talent to the fullest extent.作者Author/ 编辑Editor：钟彤悦 Anna Zhong
Urban elites are those who pursue both material abundance and artistic enjoyment. Designing houses for them is extremely tricky. Fang Lei knows this well. He knows the elites don't want a mere luxury house, but an artwork combined by life, philosophy and artistic elements.
The Bound of Bund is exceptional in many ways — one of them is the boldness in indoor design. The designer brings vibrant orange and sumptuous purple together, matches modern carpets with classic sculpture, and channels the multicultural image of Manhattan: cosmopolitan, fantastic, and extravagant.
A modern chandelier echoes the cutlery that flickers with a radiant emerald hue. This is how the dining room interprets the charisma of cosmopolitan life.
The dining room and kitchen are linked by a western-style bar. An interactive relationship is built through the setting of the bar, the living room, the dining room and the central kitchen. Meanwhile, the beautiful Bund view is within sight.
The spacious master bedroom guarantees premium comfort. The wall and the ceiling
arch flow naturally through the horizon. Blue velvet cushions and paintings on the wall remind residents of the heightened luxury and urban fashion extracted from all over the world.
Peaceful white and a hint of blue create a comfortable reading environment. The master bathroom is inspired from both international and local styles. The bathing section is another unique point — large French windows introduce sunshine and scenery to the indoor space, providing a natural place for the soul to bathe freely.
Large areas of circular balcony link each section in a piece. The balcony is divided into several different parts to meet multiple needs of parties and meetings. Here you can also appreciate the marvellous view of the Bund and forget about the crowded city life.
The lift lobby is even more artistic: the independent chamber displays artworks from Simard Bilodeau Gallery, like a mini museum.
