Watch This Space

Home Journal - - FOREWORD -

For our first is­sue of the year, we as­sem­ble key news in de­sign and cul­ture, and in­spi­ra­tional homes in Hong Kong, Ber­lin, and Manila that will get you ex­cited to see new pos­si­bil­i­ties in your spaces. In our Re­port sec­tion, we cover the trends that are poised to im­pact the way spaces are be­ing de­signed, and sub­se­quently, in­flu­ence the man­ner in which we live, not only in 2019 but in the years to come.

One of the sig­nif­i­cant direc­tions that we spot­light this month is adap­tive re­use, a practice that has re­ceived plenty of at­ten­tion in Hong Kong. De­spite the thrill of moder­nity, this con­scious ef­fort to con­serve, repurpose, and ul­ti­mately de­crease our eco­log­i­cal foot­print is a prac­ti­cal re­course that also hap­pens to bring forth op­por­tu­ni­ties for a com­mu­nity to revel in its her­itage and cul­ture. Sus­tain­abil­ity in de­sign de­serves more cham­pi­ons than ever, and we’re pleased to high­light the work of lo­cal de­sign firm Liq­uid In­te­ri­ors, which strives to drive that point across in each of their projects – par­tic­u­larly in a new devel­op­ment in Clear­wa­ter Bay, fea­tured on pg 70.

More than ush­er­ing in a new cal­en­dar year, there are a hand­ful of things we’re ex­cited about at Home Jour­nal. Big things are com­ing for both our mag­a­zine and our web­site, and we can’t wait to un­veil what we’ve been work­ing on very soon.

Cheers and a happy new year!
