House in Shatin Mid-Level (2013) by Millimeter Interior Design Limited located in Hong Kong, Hong Kong. This design gave a boundless makeover to the structure of an existing 40-year old house, transforming it into a comfortable and modern accommodation. The designer successfully divided this two-story house into a garage, a living room, a dining room, a garden, two guest rooms, two guest bathrooms, one helper suite, a master bedroom suite with a spacious walk-in closet and a study room. The highlight of this design is that it incorporates a sustainable green approach to reduce environmental impact. The external walls of the house are rebuilt over an old fashion style house preserving the original structure. This not only helps save on building reconstruction cost, but it reduces waste to protect the environment. LED light tubes are used to create a time motion-like garage, springing off a hip and surreal effect. The inclusion of nature indoors or an interaction of ecology and living space is created by planting a small maple tree in the center of the house. The open roof above the maple tree provides sunlight for the tree and also brings in natural light into the glass partitioned study room.
