Malaysia Tatler Homes - - SANCTUARIES -

here are very few places in the world where cul­tures merge and in­flu­ences in­ter­act the way they do in Hong Kong. A true con­ver­gence of East and West, the city is a prod­uct of its prove­nance and po­si­tion, in­spir­ing in­hab­i­tants to em­brace the aes­thetic im­pact that their im­me­di­ate en­vi­ron­ment has on them. Take this fam­ily’s vi­brant abode as an ex­am­ple: re­alised by de­sign­ers Anne-julie Barnes and Janet Douro of By No­made Ltd, it is a spec­tac­u­lar show­case of how the syn­the­sis of Asian and Euro­pean styles can man­i­fest in im­pec­ca­ble in­te­ri­ors. “Three years ago, we were con­tacted by a fam­ily who had just bought this prop­erty in the heart of Happy Val­ley, over­look­ing the race­track,” re­calls Janet. “They were look­ing for a full ren­o­va­tion and a tai­lor-made lay­out to suit their three chil­dren – eight, five and two years old. The pil­lar­beam de­sign of the prop­erty gave us the flex­i­bil­ity to re­al­lo­cate space to meet the fam­ily’s key re­quire­ments – on the one hand, a kid-friendly area with am­ple bed­rooms; on the other, a wel­com­ing re­cep­tion venue with easy ac­cess to the race­course view.”
