Shenzhen is a major city located in Southern China’s Guangdong Province, which lies just north of the world famous Hong Kong. Due to the densely populated urban areas, the designers and architects are regarded as some of the most creative in the business when it comes to maximizing small spaces.
Although this beautiful duplex penthouse in China is far from small at 6,630 square feet, the Shanghai based Kokaistudios certainly did a great job designing the residence. Occupying areas on both the 48th and 49th floors of a luxury building in Shenzhen, this ‘House of the Tree’ dwelling is exactly what you picture when it comes to Hong Kong luxury living.
“House of the Tree, located at the 48th and 49th floor of a high-end residential tower in Shenzhen, China, is a penthouse designed by Kokaistudios with the concept of “living between the city and the nature” offers a modern lifestyle with luxury and relaxation. The elegant and exceptional entrance, punctuated by a tree incredibly planted at the 48th floor of a residential tower, allows a panorama view that enhances the relationship between the interior and exterior, and provides an opportunity to bring in a large quantity of daylight indoor. It is the result of a large-scale of architectural modification applied to the original layout of the penthouse, a join unit of two regular apartments and a typical situation in high-rise residential towers in current China market, does not allow any perception of two floor apartments.”
