I think I’m as excited about the new residential development by Blake’s in Hong Kong as I am about the new year!
226 Hollywood Road in the old neighbourhood Sheung Wan (just west of Central) was designed by British designer Ilse Crawford and is a refreshing change from the usual character-less high rise apartments this city usually has to offer. This development is unique in many ways – not only are the apartments of reasonable size, the entire project has been designed in a way that retains some sense of the local neighbourhoods original character. And what a neighbourhood! The building is just down the road from the fabulous Press Room (a favorite brunch spot of mine) and the new kid on the block – Duecentotto. No wonder the apartments have sold already!
Oh, and I love the bathrooms too. Grey marble and gold taps. Brilliant.
Happy 2011 to you all!
