“Design our home to be clean and tidy” was the only instruction given by our client for the 1,100 square foot renovation of their Hong Kong apartment.


With storage at a premium in Hong Kong, much of the family’s apartment was devoted to a heterogenous collection of storage furniture: wardrobes, chests, bookcases, and boxes.


The Storage T consolidates all of the household’s items within a single storage system that is one with walls and doorways.

Storage becomes the architecture of the home.


The Storage T both unites and divides the apartment through a series of thresholds that mark the entrance to each of the three bedrooms in the apartment.


The Storage T cabinets both organize and conceal the contents of each room.


Keeping the space “clean and tidy,” the Storage T can hold extra pillows and pillowcases, stools for large family gatherings during Chinese New Year, as well as books and paperwork.


There is room for both the everyday clothing items as well as extra umbrellas to see off all of the family’s dinner guests on a rainy evening.
