It’s being billed as ‘hidden serenity amid the city’s hustle and bustle’, with tranquility at its heart, indulging residents in a ‘lifestyle of taste and elegance’ and offering a respite from the busy urban streets of Hong Kong. Fleur Pavilia, a three-tower development in Kai Yuen Street at North Point,  that boasts an array of architectural master strokes in its exteriors, interiors and landscaping, particularly when it comes to a marriage of Japanese and Chinese elements.

Fleur Pavilia is set to be home to 611 one to four-bedroomed apartments when it opens – with sizes ranging between 519 and 1,537 sq ft, as well as nine duplex apartments ranging from 1,625 to 3,221 sq ft. Hong Kong conglomerate New World Development – which has a large property arm – is behind the project, under its The Artisanal Movement , a new creative undertone of the New World’s brand culture that celebrates craftsmanship and artisanship.

When it comes to the aesthetics, New World Development has invited world-renowned Japanese designer Shigeru Uchida and leading landscape design firm Ohtori Consultants Co Ltd to create the interiors of the artisanal clubhouse, Fleur Pavilion and the landscape design (pictured above). It’s these touches that give the development a feeling of harmony and ‘hidden serenity’, creating an urban architectural masterpiece. Here are some design highlights:

Japanese tea room-inspired clubhouse

Uchida’s team has created the 26,348 sq ft Fleur Pavilion clubhouse built around the essence of the Japanese philosophy of kazuaki seishin (meaning harmony, respect, purity and tranquillity) by infusing the Japanese tea room design into the clubhouse. Wooden hues and bamboo materials adorn the space. Central to the design are the web-like wooden strips intricately woven into minimalist screens that double as walls. They create a space that feels both open and secluded at the same time. Different spaces are connected through engawa, the traditional Japanese architectural feature that separates the landscape area from interiors. It is also the “Here and There” concept from Uchida and his team. There’s handpicked objets d’art from across the world throughout the development, as well as beautiful bespoke furniture created by Uchida’s team for Fleur Pavilia.

The blossoming Fleur Island

The blossoming Fleur Island

When it comes to thoughtfully designed landscapes at Hong Kong urban developments, Fleur Pavilia is leading the way. There’s a blissful harmony of pine, bamboo and plum blossoms, deftly combining both Japanese and Chinese cultures. Known as the three friends of winter, these plants have the ability to thrive in the cold, harsh weather. Together, they embody grit, perseverance and resilience, which represent the ideal characteristics of a gentleman and scholar. There are also Japanese ikebana – or plant art – techniques at play here. Fleur Island sits in the centre of the development as the signature piece. A 7.8-metre tall stainless steel sculpture named Seven Knees is situated on Fleur Island, giving the clubhouse landscape a lively vibe. Flowers and plants adorn the island and it’s surrounded by a stream of water, again offering residents a slice of tranquility away from the crowds. The still water acts as a mirror and the flowing stream and waterfall give the whole place a burst of energy.

At the main entrance of Fleur Pavilia, there’s a water sculpture created by Uchida and his team that’s been carved in a way that captures the light, thus turning shadows into dancing flecks on the walls. Aptly named Dancing Water, the sculpture adds movement to the serenity of the space, allowing residents to leave all anxieties at the door. The renowned Japanese landscape design firm Ohtori Consultants Co. Ltd. created a multilayered waterscape within the clubhouse. With the stream flowing gently through the iconic Fleur Island, the design blurs the line between indoor and outdoor spaces and offers a sense of peacefulness.

Nature-inspired architecture

Set against the lush green backdrop of Hong Kong Island’s mountain range, Fleur Pavilia’s three towers boast bright and beautiful exterior architecture that makes them stand out from the surrounding buildings while also fitting in with the urban landscape. The architecture here has been created in a way that blends seamlessly with the interiors, all focusing on the simple beauty of nature as well as the idea of urban tranquility, away from the Hong Kong crowds.
