23 Sep Steve Leung Design Group Debuts Green Shore in Guangzhou
A New Luxury Residential Landmark Redefining Novel Poetic Urban Living Style
Internationally renowned and award-winning architecture and interior design company, Steve Leung Design Group (SLD) has joined hands with Henry Fok Ying Tung Group to present its latest residential design, Green Shore, a high-end residential project in Guangzhou. The highly anticipated show flat is now ready to reveal its glamour.
Located at the tip of Luoxi Island in Panyu, Guangzhou, the luxury residence is embraced by the Pearl River on three sides, offering panoramic views of the stunning scenery. While this is the first project of Henry Fok Ying Tung Group to rise in the heart of the city, the only 16 exquisite apartments each spanning approximately 480 sqm have made an impressive debut. The design concept “Poetic Urban Living” is conveyed through a de-stylized approach that encourages homeowners to have an intimate dialogue with nature. The design highlights the expansive views of the river and greenery, while artfully integrating elegant garden greens and resident-oriented elements. This exceptional penthouse offers residents a tranquil, timeless and comfortable living space, one that is perfect for the families of young entrepreneurs and business leaders to reside in.
Tranquil Island Dwelling in the City: An Elevated Lifestyle and Vision Dedicated to Guangzhou
The developer and designer share the same vision to elevate the living environment for Guangzhou residents to the next level by introducing a brand-new living style in the center of the city. Characterized by a thoughtful layout, the spaces have been meticulously planned to ensure a seamless and flexible flow, while ensuring the spatial fluidity between the indoors and outdoors. The overall design is accentuated by a neutral wood tone, complemented by olive green hues throughout various areas, bringing the refreshing greenery from the outdoors into the interior and creating a tranquil and natural island dwelling ambience.
Upon stepping out of the elevator to the exclusive lobby elevated as an in-home garden, its wall is adorned with Opera d’Arte marble originating from France, featuring shades of classic French emerald green with playful touches of pink. The rich tones and layered textures found in nature serve as genuine works of art, inspiring the designer to bring the beauty of nature into the home. The vibrant balcony on the left exudes natural vitality. Resting on the comfy sofa, this space offers homeowners a picturesque view of the Pearl River and leads into the living room. With the post- pandemic observation in mind, the designer incorporated a spacious entry closet with a washbasin set on the right side of the entrance, which ensures cleanliness upon entering or leaving the home, and allows homeowners to freshen up before entering the living area.
Exclusive Breathtaking 180° Pearl River View From the 16-meter Balcony Linking with the Multifunctional Living Space
The interior features different social spaces with smooth circulation, and seamlessly connects to a spacious 16-meter balcony offering a breathtaking 180°view of the river, which echoes nature. In addition to the living and dining areas, a semi-open partition wall further divides the social space into a multi-functional lounge and a tea area, creating a smooth connection between the two areas. This spacious and versatile environment enhances the homeowners’ living experiences with family and friends. The TV wall in the living room crafted from Swiss Alps Emerald stone embodies a unique texture that is luxurious but humble at the same time. The cabinetry in the multi-functional lounge is accented with Bvlgari marble from Italy, which gives a natural elegance. This open area is furnished with a long table and chairs, catering to the daily dining needs of the homeowners. Meanwhile, the lounge area is equipped with the Arclinea double-door wine cabinet, a top-tier Italian brand, creating a modest yet luxurious space for social activities and entertainment. Both the kitchen and the adjoining workspace feature the same Bvlgari marble and cabinets with a distinctive colour tone, allowing the two areas to blend naturally together as one entity. The design choice not only gives more visual space but also adds a touch of extravagance to this area.
Embracing 270°Sunset Views in the Master Suite and the Splendour of the Four Bedrooms
The apartment features four bedrooms – a master suite, a secondary master suite, a children’s room and a guest room. The entrance of the master bedroom suite is flanked by an exquisite walk-in double closet equipped with practical functions. The spacious master bedroom features a comfortable sofa set adjacent to large, curved floor-to-ceiling windows, providing homeowners with exclusive 270°sunset views and an unparalleled sense of natural calm. The bathroom, paved with Bvlgari marble that showcases its vitality and rich texture, is equipped with an extra-long double sink and a dressing area for its female homeowner, giving out a sense of splendour and grandeur. Every corner of this home has been thoughtfully designed to provide both comfort and aesthetics, making it the perfect retreat.
The secondary master suite provides a separate lounge, leisure area and a walk-in closet, while the wall behind the bed is covered in ultra-thin stone slabs to yield a natural and rustic style. The children’s room adopts an integrated design approach with the bed next to a bay window, fulfilling the storage requirement and basic functions. While a study table and wardrobe are set aside to make the most of the space and add liveliness to the room. The guest room provides all the necessary facilities for a temporary stay.
Artistic Decorative Touches on A Simple and Clean Canvas
The harmonious colour palette and clean lines together with the unique views of the river create a comfortable and calming atmosphere. Enhanced by exquisite furniture, soft furnishings, and artworks, this space exudes a sense of poetic charm. The living room features a sleek and elegant combination sofa from TURRI, an Italian luxury handmade furniture manufacturer, in a soft beige hue. The olive-green armchair is seated on the scenic balcony, a masterpiece of the Italian brand Molteni&C, known as the “Love Chair,” exhibiting its elegant curves. The colours and lines of the sofa and armchair complement each other perfectly, creating a harmonious and stylish atmosphere. The dining room is dominated by a soft beige colour tone, with a marble dining table paired with the elegant butterfly-shaped dining chairs from the Chinese brand Banlan. Above the table hangs a modern lantern-shaped pendant light with a delicate lampshade made from Japanese washi paper. Next to the dining area is a half-partition wall adorned with prints by the emerging artist Didi Wu, depicting a lush green island that symbolizes the vitality of nature and echoes with the location. This adds a touch of poetry to the neat and elegant dining space. The furniture in the tea area is from a Chinese brand Sureeco, featuring a modern oriental style. Following the philosophy of Chinese traditional art that emphasizes the importance of negative space, the wooden sculptures create a serene atmosphere ideal for meditation and tea drinking. In the master suite, a double bed from the high-end Italian brand GIORGETTI’s KAO series, exemplifies timeless elegance and modern aesthetics.
Green Shore in Guangzhou stands as one of SLD’s recent landmark luxury residential projects in the city. The de-styling design approach creates a timeless style by eschewing excessive decoration and carefully selecting design elements and materials to maximize visual effect. Delicately crafted and humanized designs embody the living philosophy of a harmonious coexistence between humans and nature, showcasing the poetic urban living style.
