THE FUTURA - THE FIRST FUTURISTIC SHOW HOME IN THE WORLD

Alexander Wong Architects as Interior Design

“LOOK DEEP INTO NATURE 

AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND 

EVERYTHING BETTER.”

ALBERT EINSTEIN


Future Living. Future Nature.

What Will Our Future Hold ?

How Will We Live Tomorrow ?


Inspired by nature, this futuristic Show Home called “THE FUTURA” aims to create a totally new way for future living in Hong Kong. The city is part of the most dynamic economic zone in China, the new Greater Bay Area that aspires towards experiencing the newest and latest of everything. 


Upon arrival, the lift lobby is an abstract vertical forest drenched in white.


Looking through the giant diaphanous sliding glass door, one enters an abstract transitional garden, allowing the visitors to change footwear under a futuristic tree with lighting from branches made into half-arches.


Inspired by Alice in Wonderland, a golden rabbit surprises the guests suggesting a different kind of space time continuum. Further along, under a giant disc-like ceiling, Living and Dining are not differentiated like any ordinary home. With references to Energy Pods, the two L-shaped sofas for Living and Dining are interchangeable. Here the Half Moon TV Wall in front of a giant mirror surface automatically slides open for a sneak preview into new ideas of future living. Echoing the Half Moon TV Wall is a sliding Solar Screen set against the balcony inspired by Verner Panton’s famous Spiral Verpan Chandeliers, here reinterpreted as a unique sunlight filtering device.


Opposite the Living Area is a colourful corner for music and imagination equipped with Devialet’s Phantom Wireless Speaker and Nanoleaf Lighting under a silver mirror sky. A white curtain forest leads one into the bedroom suites filled with more surprises for Tomorrow’s Living.


THE FUTURA show home is designed by Hong Kong’s Alexander Wong Architects for the Paliburg Group at Mount Regalia in Kau To Shan above Shatin’s Race Course. It has 17 futuristic features never seen in any traditional show home before. A design attempting to break new grounds and boundaries in the world of spatial design within the context of Hong Kong’s uniquely competitive as well as one of the world’s most expensive real estate market.
