Consider the thirtieth floor penthouse of The Morgan a new equation for home economics. In space-starved Hong Kong, a 3,952 sq ft apartment is by any metric, astronomical in size. And that’s not even factoring the 1,461 sq ft private outdoor area with a view of Victoria Peak. By virtue of its perch in the Upper Mid-Levels precinct, one finds himself just next to the centre of the city, but at elevations that dodge the city’s noxious smog.
Given the apartment’s palatial scale, interior designer Robert Cheng, founder of Brewin Design Office, saw good reason to carve out spaces made for mingling: “The elegant living and dining room and extensive terrace facing the beautiful green expanse of Victoria Peak, are the perfect stage for both large-scale and intimate entertaining. It’s such a luxury to own a whole floor in this amazing building, so I was determined to create a beautiful and comfortable private home, and an exclusive showcase that combines intimacy and soul with a public expression on a special scale.”
