Wellness at Home

Image 1: The wellness-focused design of 133 Portofino has been inspired by the verdant environs and stunning sea views. This connection with nature became the starting point for the design, and is integral to the property

The growing awareness of wellness is shaping architecture and home design. Award-winning architect Frank Leung of via. architecture embraces this wholeheartedly, as seen at 133 Portofino. ‘For us, it has always been our ethos to create designs with human experience at the forefront,’ he says. ‘We believe in building conversations between nature and the built environment to foster wellness.’

True to this ethos, 133 Portofino is about balance. The seaside property is the first Hong Kong residential development to achieve WELL v2™ pre-certification, the world’s first architectural benchmark focusing exclusively on human health and wellness to improve sustainability. Here, as Leung says, nature and building are in conversation.

The design team has worked to integrate exterior and interior spaces, such as in the design of the clubhouse, where elements are both drawn from the landscape and extend seamlessly from within. Interiors thoughtfully maximise the lush environment, framing surrounding views and emphasising openness and horizontality. Low furniture and earthy textures match nature’s soft palette, creating a coastal ambience
