An existing 40-year old house in Sha Tin district, Hong Kong was recently given a complete make-over by the architects at Millimeter Interior Design Limited. Overall costs were lowered by building the exterior walls over the existing structure. The new 5100 square-foot residence is currently divided into two stories and features a garage, a living room, two guest rooms and bathrooms, one helper suite, a master bedroom suite with a spacious walk in closet and a study room. The street facade reveals a striking garage, with LED light tubes imprinting a futuristic vibe.

Now that environmental awareness or being socially responsible has become an increasing trend in society, bringing sustainability into homes is an alternate lifestyle for the new generation”, the architects stated.
