The three-tower residential development is situated in the city’s busy North Point district, which is populated by a number of other housing projects.
For the design of its communal “clubhouse”, New World Development’s executive vice-chairman and general manager Adrian Cheng teamed up with the eponymous studio of late Japanese designer Shigeru Uchida and landscape design firm Ohtori Consultants.
Uchida has previously collaborated with Cheng to create the Khora furniture collection , which was partly inspired by Japan’s scenery and made using traditional joinery methods.
The Fleur Pavilia clubhouse features several rooms that are fronted by glass or centred around glazed courtyards, offering views onto Fleur Island – a verdant garden dotted with plum blossom trees, loosely influenced by Ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arrangement.
Uchida Design wanted the space to have the same calming atmosphere of Japan’s renowned tea rooms and to “offer a respite for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle”.
Interiors are decked out with bespoke furnishings crafted from light-hued pinewood or bamboo.
“Nature’s simplified beauty and sense of tranquility is at the core of the design idea,” said the company.
“The omnipresent wooden hue and bamboo materials in the space, complemented by the smart use of walls and zoning, blurs the line between the exterior and interior to form a majestic outdoors-indoors interplay.”
Several water features are also included throughout the gardens, which are meant to “gently nudge onlookers to take a moment of reflection.”
New World Development has created another residential project in the city called Bohemian House , which features an artisan kitchen and heritage-inspired interiors intended to appeal to sophisticated urbanites.
