    A literary sanctuary in Qingdao

    Sadly, many bookstores have struggled to survive in the digital era. So it’s heartening to see a beautifully designed bookstore open in the harbour city of Qingdao, thanks to a collaboration between Hong Kong studio Karv One Design, mainland developer China Vanke and local bookseller Yan Ji You.

    Elegant design lets the star of the show shine

    It was an intimidating challenge – to design an intimate omakase counter in Hong Kong for Mitsuhiro Araki, the only Japanese chef in the world to have earned three Michelin stars for his signature restaurants in Tokyo and London. But Design East’s Yuki Yasukagawa knew her team had nailed it when the legendary sushi master first set eyes on the elegant 12-seat restaurant. “He loved it,” she recalls.

    Zhuhai’s maritime history inspires mega waterfront development

    Described as the most liveable city in China, Zhuhai was recently connected to Hong Kong and Macau by the longest sea-crossing bridge in the world. Now it’s about to get a brand new 52-hectare neighbourhood, Jiuzhou Bay, inspired by the city’s maritime history and designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM).
