Hong Kong Apartment Therapy

Architect and founder of Edge Design Gary Chang is truly a “domestic transformer”.   He moved into his 344 square foot apartment over 30 years ago with his parents and siblings.  Like most of the 370 units in the 17-story buildings in Hong Kong, space is at a premium and sharing it with a family challenging.  

Since then, an innovative solution to space planning allows for variety.  We all love options.   Transformation takes place through a system of movable gliding walls.  The wall system hides and exposes the possibility of 24 different rooms including dining room, kitchen, bar, video room, movable closets, library and three bedrooms.      The bed is on hydraulics and moves out of the way much like a Murphy bed.  Slide them all to the side and you have an open space.   This modern renovation began in 2008 at a cost of $218,000.
