TIA Home Design
Tai Po, known for its majestic garden houses, is home to a new architectural point of interest. The 2,100 square foot home excels at slowly revealing itself, creating a playful sense of mystery and anticipation.
Surrounded by a private garden, the renovated building is set over four floors.
When visitors come to call, they enter via a custom-crafted steel gate and are directed up a garden path surrounded by verdant natives.
Once inside, the airy open-plan kitchen features a long, oval dining table that nestles neatly against the curved kitchen bench. The kitchen leads on to the lounge area where the new, relocated staircase is the star of the show An undulating gap, along the bottom of the wall and the stairs, allows those in the lounge room to sneak just a view of the feet and nothing else.
This sense of fun is carried over to the living-room wall that forms part of the staircase. Here a television was installed to appear as if suspended in mid-air. At the other end of the wall there is a small illuminated recessed area that can display ornaments.
Also on the ground floor, there is a functional storeroom, powder room and maid’s room. The front and back entrances were swapped to improve the “flow,” and create easier access to the parking area and garden.
The first floor is set up to welcome guests, affording them extra privacy with a visitor living room, guest bedroom and bathroom, and a larger room incorporating an office space with custom storage units and exercise area. In addition, a wine fridge and relaxation chair make for a pleasurable time on the balcony which overlooks the sea.
The master bedroom suite dominates the entire second floor and includes walk-in closets, a small work-station and spacious en-suite with dramatic black plunge spa bath. To maintain privacy, each section is divided by glass doors.
A sense of calm neutrality pervades the house, notably due to the neutral tones used with the occasional addition of black and white, creating a clean, uncluttered space.
