The auerbach / norman residence & fashion showroomoccupies two floors in a 1940's apartment building situated at the highest point of Magazine Gap, the Peak, with stunning 180 degree views of Hong Kong island.  Featured in SCMP  23 December 2001.

The staged refurbishment (whilst the Client was in residence) included a fashion showroom for Sonjia's clothing & accessories label, family living room, children's bedrooms & bathroom, gymnasium, staircase and balcony. The second stage, consisting of formal lounge / dining, master suite, informal dining and office, is to follow. The apartment was stripped to a shell and layered with 1940's compatible architectural detailing, a mix of custom made contemporary and classic pieces, antique furniture, handcrafted detailing, indirect lighting, and strong contemporary Chinese artwork to create a sense of burnished beauty and pared down eclecticism.
