    Default Hong Kong: Rooted in tradition

    The Inspiration Is Ancient in a House on the South China Sea


    Deep overhangs were among the traditional Chinese building elements that Seattle-based architect Jim Olson, of Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen, incorporated into a graceful contemporary residence he designed for a couple atop a steep promontory outside Hong Kong. Chaise longue, Sutherland.

    just by looking at the construction & the design of this house, i can tell it's olson sundberg kundig allen. almost all their houses and projects are defined by that typical look of theirs.
    wonderful house. thanks for posting, honey.

    stunning house.
    but the decor inside is much too brown and beige and way too matchy-matchy.
