This high-end home is something quite out of the ordinary. Created by Millimeter Interior Design, the 435.0 square metre house in Hong Kong is a car lover?s dream. It comes with a glass box garage that can be viewed from the living room as though the car was just another piece of lounge furniture. Despite its motor motivated design, the rest of the place is light and tranquil with a clean crisp style. White walls and a light wooden flooring are a staple in this space, with hardly a dash of colour present. The overall look is inviting and surprisingly warm despite its stark surrounds and generous room proportions.

Instead of going for the obvious industrial-chic concrete staircase, the designers have opted for iron stairs that allow a less obstructed view of the homeowners treasured car in it?s glazed garage. The staircase also connects with the look of an angle bracket feature wall, which holds a huge flat screen television – the only item in the room that competes for attention with the motorists prized possession.The Lamborghini is raised up on a concrete stage, a feature which runs along into the living space too, linking the two spaces together.

The main lighting in this living area is all recessed into the ceiling for a minimalist look. A unique coffee table in front of a long grey sofa appears as though it is a multitude of separate articles sprouting directly out of the floor, like flowers from the earth, but it?s an interlocking design balanced on multiple legs to give this effect. Vases of white flowers on the table and a nearby plinth add to the organic influence. A low level side table flanks the four seater sofa, displaying a small selection of family photographs and art.
The living room is a highly minimalist design, but the length of the sofa suggests this is a friendly sociable space. A heap of scatter cushions ranging through a monochrome spectrum of black, grey and white make this a cosy place to crash out and watch a movie or enjoy a game.

A glazed wall that runs off the glass garage at a right angle reveals a zen garden, which runs alongside the driveway into the house.

After passing through the long living room you will find yourself in a spacious kitchen diner. The white dining table runs directly into a black central island. Suspended over the six place dining table are two oversized white pendant lights to flood the huge area with plentiful bright light. On the opposite side to the kitchen a bank of bespoke storage units conceal any household clutter whilst allowing a couple of opportunities to display a selection of treasured items and a limited book library.
