A Nautical Inspired Apartment
Let’s take a peek inside this nautical inspired apartment – a high-tech and luxurious residential project.
Winning the bronze in the “Design Award and Competition”, this project was designed by the prestigious Cameron Interiors Hong Kong, a firm that worked with projects of varying dimensions up to that point – in fact, this wasn’t their first award-winning work. These projects ranged from small to large scale residentials and even commercial and corporate design projects, always striving to provide unique and comprehensive design solutions, completely tailored to their clients’ persona.
They chose to work with some luxurious pieces from Boca do Lobo and Brabbu to meet their client’s needs. The Cullinan stands out for its unique approach on the studio’s core values: aesthetics, functionality, personality and value.
The Cullinan had its outlines defined by the clients, i.e., the owners of the apartment, which just happened to be big fans of music and film, resulting in a desire, on their part, to have a space that could serve as a home cinema.
“We aim at providing high standard of quality in terms of design, craftsmanship and service.”
The living room features warm wood flooring that meets with floor-to-ceiling windows which reveal a majestic overview of the Hong Kong harbor. These windows are accompanied by heavy blackout curtains that not only prevent the room from overheating, but also serve a major role in the owners’ request: the creation of the perfect ambience for a home cinema.
The room is equipped with upper echelon audio-visual equipment understatedly hidden by a sliding TV wall composed of steel and leather. But the state-of-the-art technology doesn’t end there: a Smart Living System, providing holistic control of all electric devices – this includes the projector, screen, curtains and sound system – was implemented with the goal to provide a more comfortable and convenient day-to-day living for the client.
Completely standing out in the living room by its vivid color is the Sika Armchair from Brabbu. This armchair upholstered in synthetic orange leather, gathers its inspiration from the sika deer. An elegant and strong animal original from Japan. The most distinctive features of this wing chair are the button detailing on the inner back, the nail head trim and the brass details of the arm.
The team’s main inspiration for this project was the inherent opulence of a super yacht. To bring this home, the main living area eludes a nautical feel granted by the curvaceous lines that surround the room, mirroring waves echoing throughout the structure which are complemented by the luscious colors chosen for the room’s colour scheme.
This is especially noticeable in the blue circular rug, hugged by a round cream sofa, that fades from a white shade into increasingly darker shades of blue from the center. Where the golden Eden Center Table from Boca do Lobo can be found. This center table represents a part of the tree of knowledge and the tale of the birth of desire. Boca do Lobo uses the highest quality materials and textures, giving them shapes through objects that create a cosmopolitan luxury environment. Effectively evoking and capturing the ocean in the middle of this splendid living room. This, as all the other details in the apartment, was meticulously thought out and perfectly executed.
Originally, the apartment was compartmentalized into four rooms divided among 1294 square feet (120m2).
This made for relatively small floor plans, that left the apartment feeling slightly constrained. In order to optimize the use of this space, the team changed the layout of the apartment. This was done by opening up one of the walls in the kitchen, instantly making it feel wider and thus creating a more breathable and spacious area, and also by creating an ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet in the master bedroom, maximizing the room’s potential.
