Sennett Residences

Project Description

A spacious cosy abode exuding a posh yet quiet unassuming elegance. The subliminal introduction of well-designed accents that brings about a cohesive language all coming together to create a celebratory space. Working with the existing colour palette, natural textures such a timber and marble finishes were introduced with dashes of brass accents for that little touch of opulence. The space was kept clean to ensure that the client could enjoy the unparalleled view of this penthouse suite with a double-storey living space. To achieve the best of a space is to understand the space, a sunset facing high stool and table was introduced to capture this heavenly moment to be enjoyed on good clear weather.

Sunset House

Project Description

A contemporary approach to the design of this landed property situated along Sunset Way was taken to modernise an otherwise dated property. The architecture focused on visually breaking down the box like mass by introducing a lighter finish on the second floor. Linear functional architectural elements such as overhangs and reconfiguring the external windows were introduced to achieve a sleek and modern outlook.

The internal layout underwent a major re-configuration to cater to the new owner’s requirements and to achieve a more efficient layout. The car porch roof was also converted into a balcony space to maximize the usable space of the property.

Corporate Luxury

Project Description

Luxury is feeling unrushed, welcoming, and calming. Designed to be a corporate space catering to a niche clientele, this space was intended to exude luxury with a corporate

flare. A fine balance between being a place for serious business discussions and a bespoke lounge to let one unwind. To be present is to experience the space with multiple senses. Therefore, besides what design and carefully curated textures can provide for the sense of sight and touch; the sounds of a calming and soothing waterfall relax one’s senses as they are seated in the lounge.

Umami 10

Project Description

The design of Umami 10, a restaurant that serves European inspired Japanese cuisine was inspired by the head chef’s flamboyant and vibrant personality paired with his culinary art. What was finally created was an unassuming shopfront with peering windows to capture a passerby’s attention. The journey is always a big part of YWA’s design approach, and no effort was spared here to engage the senses of patrons entering the main dining bar. An art gallery towards the rear was planned for local artists to display their art for sale. Colors used were carefully selected to consider the effects it would have on one’s appetite. Bedazzled by a one-of-a-kind dining experience specially created for Umami 10.

8 St Thomas

Project Description

The design concept for this apartment was conceived as a relaxing retreat for the owner, a place where one can retire to quietly for a short reprieve before facing the hustle and bustle of everyday city life – a space where one could think and recharge. To that effect, this design employs the use of contrasting materials like glossy marble stone and gold trimmings which denotes luxury. Warm woody textures were introduced to remind one of the pleasures of homely comfort. These elements combine to create a warm and nurturing environment, perfect for the contemplative homeowner.

Jujuzen Café

Project Description

Jujuzen is opened by none other than Charmaine Hui, who has continuously engaged our professional services for her F&B establishments. This third installation is based on a modern take on traditional Hong Kong tea house theme and food.

The design direction was to bring back a nostalgic atmosphere, yet with a modern twist, resulting in an eclectic and traditional setting with a contemporary atmosphere. In the evenings, the space was intended to transform into a bar setting where the target audience was more of an adult crowd where they can grab a drink or two.
