The Boundary represents a modern and loft living experience for young creative professionals, from intricate tiling detail, to the exploration of east meets west phenomenon that is ever present.
Our design draws from the rich cultural history of the gentrifying neighborhood in Kowloon on Boundary Street, an invisible frontier that once divided Hong Kong from the mainland and the historical curved corner buildings Tong Lau that were once more intimate and human scaled but slowly disappearing.
Inspired by the similarity in its urban grid and scale to the Soho district in New York City, our design aims to retain the once intimate and humanistic neighborhood with an artistic touch, celebrating a Soho lifestyle where loft residences were once occupied by artists.
A modern interpretation of traditional Tong Lau shophouse architecture crossing with the historical cast iron facade of big windows in Soho New York City, our design aims to retain the once intimate and human scaled neighborhood where loft spaces were first born.
Although many corner buildings are gone, many more remain as unheralded reminders of a city that was once more intimate and human-scaled. “They represent a certain slice of Hong Kong vernacular architecture,” said Wolf. “These are all buildings that are not done by named architects. They’re bread-and-butter works by locals.” - Christopher DeWolf
