The Storage T

What: Apartment Remodel

Where: Hong Kong, China

Size: 1,500 sf

Client: Mr. & Mrs. Kwong

Status: Expected completion by summer 2018

Team: Lap Chi Kwong, Alison Von Glinow

Description: “Clean and tidy” was the only instruction from our client. The status quo was not clean and tidy: Cabinets, wardrobes, mismatched storage cabinets and boxes scattered all over the apartment. The Storage “T” consolidates all these in a storage system that is one with walls and doorways: Storage becomes architecture. Rather than rely on part-to-whole storage products, the “Storage T” is an architectural device organizing the layout and contents of the apartment. Experienced, the Storage T unites the apartment through a series of thresholds, marking the entrance to and from each room.
