Harmony Block is prototype for Hong Kong public housing in recent 20 years. One of a major characteristic is the prefabricated façades end wall as a major elevation element; While for private development, It will treated as window openings. My mum recently brought one of this flat. Apart from design interior and making furniture for her, I also got opportunities to see the interior of the neighbors, many of them are really nice and luxury. The families purchased this type of public housing are considered lucky in current high market price. It is a proposal to the future owner’s corporations if the tower needs to be renovated after 20 years. Residents can have their own right and freedom on the design. I propose a giant graffiti on the solid wall reversing the downside to advantage. Most important, give identity to each tower. The work is a luxury picnic leather case as well, taking food and drinks to the public spaces in the estate.
和諧式公屋在港建了廿年，由於以預製件方式建造外牆，其中一個特色是十分顯眼的結構外牆，然而如果項目為私人住宅，應會設計成窗戶。 我媽媽最近亦買了一套這樣的居屋。除了幫她設計室內裝修和製作傢俱外，還有機會看到鄰居的設計，許多非常豪華，與私人住宅的標準相同。購買了這種公營房屋的家庭，在當前的高樓價下，都是幸運的一群。 如果房屋需要在20年後進行翻新，這是對未來業主立案法團的翻新建議。這時候居民才可以有自主，自由的設計權。我在這幅牆上提出了一個巨大的塗鴉，扭轉缺點成為一個優勢。最重要的是，打破一式一樣的設計，給每棟樓塑造自己的特色。 作品同時是一個小皮箱，可帶食物飲品到屋邨的不同公共空間野餐。
