Paterson, Headland Road, Hong Kong

Inspired by the retro glamour of Hollywood in its heyday, AB Concept matched the interiors of this 750sq m showhouse with the prestige of its South Bay address. A dark, glossy palette and select luxury accents define its lower floor, among them panels in sting ray leather, woven leather curtain and glass inlaid with horsetail hair. The studio chose to eschew paintings or sculpture in favour of iconic furniture pieces, each of which projects a unique personality.

The stage here is set for entertaining and the roof deck is dressed accordingly with an open kitchen, lounge area and Jacuzzi. However the mood on the second floor has been softened to an amber-coated intimacy. Delicate floral touches in the master bedroom meet the latest in entertainment technology, complete with plasma screen and a colour changing mood programme, with a touch of academia in the rich leather and lacquered panelling.
