When architect Norman Ung Wai-Lun, was commissioned to turn a 1980s Mid-Levels apartment into a two-bedroom, two-bathroom contemporary family home, its constraints soon became clear: the five structural walls carving up the apartments.

The owners wanted a grand master suite, a bedroom for their baby daughter and a guest room for visits from Grandma. They also wanted to preserve the apartment’s big living spaces, create a library wall, with a ladder,  and guarantee the interior was both child-friendly and sophisticated.

“Our key design approach is that, no matter how big or small the space, we try to squeeze the most out of it, to give it flex­ibility,” Ung says. “Another key element of the design was the wall unit in the living room – they really wanted it to have a ladder, like a library. So we designed it as a set of boxes, some with doors and some open. The whole space is monochrome – black, grey and white – which works well with their exotic pieces. Colour is provided by books, art and soft furnishings.”

An exception to the monochrome colour scheme is the huge master suite, its dimensions dictated by more structural walls. Created from two former bedrooms and a bathroom, space was kept as open as possible, with a glass-walled en-suite bathroom and large dressing area, complete with glass-topped island.
