Project Number 40: Uttamchandani House

This is the firm’s first off shore account. Located in the upscale district of Mid-Levels, Hong Kong, in the very prestigious Grenville House, this 300 square meter condominium unit has  a full service demonstration-grade kitchen, dining and living halls, powder room, den, two standard bed room suites and a master suite. The design style is Techno Sino-Indian Modern with heavy take-off emphasis on the Indian roots of the owners.

Of a different concept of luxury, opposed to the South East Asian clean and matte, this project takes the opposite direction and goes glossy luxurious, which is in order in cold sub-tropical East Asian cities such as Hong Kong.

Materials are rear coated glass, real and faux leather, stainless steel, Chinese Maple in charcoal silverised oil stain, agglomerated stone and poly-urethane paint. Kitchen is in rear coated glass on high density fiber board with resin counter top, all by Kitench, Incorported. Back Ground Music – Public Address (BGM-PA) System is by Bose, and selected furniture pieces are by Fendi, Vitra, Giorgetti and Kenneth Cobonpue. Prominent furniture pieces are designed by the firm’s principal, Joseph Javier. The project completed summer of 2010.

Design team members are RCBautista (EE), and CLMadriaga (SE).
