The Luna Hong Kong by Make Architects INTERIORS / 24 JUNE 2018 / BY S O I S O U R C E
The Luna at 18 Lun Fat Street in Wan Chai is the new residential tower from Make Architects for client Vanke Property (Hong Kong) Co., Ltd. which sets a new standard for high-quality serviced apartments in Hong Kong.

Located in the neighbourhood of a former printing works, the practice has used a printing block motif as the inspiration for the façade and interior design and give the scheme a striking detail that sets it apart from the neighbouring towers. The slim 29* storey tower contains 105 high-end apartments, including one top-floor luxury penthouse and a residents club house. It sits above a dual height podium containing retail and restaurants.

The practice was invited to compete for the interiors and façade design for an existing design, but quickly identified a number of ways to improve the efficiency of both the apartment layouts and the form of the tower itself. Make won the competition with an increased ‘holistic’ role to design the façade and interiors, as well as the architecture and landscaping.

The history of the district has been expressed in the façade and balcony design. Both tower and podium are clad in champagne-gold, powder-coated aluminium rainscreen panels that gradually alternate between solid and perforated, meeting specific local planning requirements as well as providing changing views and interesting patterns of light and shadow. Balconies are staggered across all sides of the facade and provide solar shading as well as important outside space. Their square shape and gradually perforated motif reference the traditional printing blocks.
