A Place That Gets Me in The Mood
Interview with Kong Kee

Everyone has a dream space in mind where they can live and work freely. To a creative professional, such a place should also be his source of inspirations from idea generation to execution. And Kong Kee, an illustrator as well as an animator, is expecting a place that could get him in the mood.

Kong Kee said, ‘my main task is to create comics and animations. Drawing comics is more like a personal meditation while animating is like a party because you get to work with different people and lots of communication is involved. When an animation film is done, we need a good place to review the product and the effects together as if we are in a movie screening session. A place of sharing can physically gather people involved in the same project to nurture a sense of belonging. However, whether I am still in the middle of creating illustrations or animations, I need an extremely silent environment to think deeply about my story. That’s why I love working in the studio with fewer people during weekends. Sometimes I’d even go to parks for inspirations. It’s nothing to do with my home or studio – but all about whether a place can get me to the highest state of mental concentration.’

This is why a mutable space is what Kong Kee needs the most – a place where he can create stories without disturbance and feel life, and when necessary, can be changed into a party room where his animation team could communicate and share. The newly completed Bizhouse in Causeway Bay is an unprecedented multifunctional space where living and working rolled into one. Each flat is designed to be highly flexible with mobile furniture and secret storage spaces so that a comfortable living room can be transformed into a meeting room in just seconds. This is definitely the place for creative talents and entrepreneurs to achieve their dream lives.

Have My Own Place and Live My Best Life
Interview with Photographer Topaz Leung

Before starting her photography career, Topaz Leung has been working for a magazine but she soon figured out that she loves taking photos more than writing. Getting tired of the mundane and regular type of work, over 10 years ago, she decided to transform from an editor to a photographer – she officially dropped her pens and notebook, and started to tell stories with her camera.

‘As a photographer, I have very flexible working hours but still have to work with a lot of different people including clients and art directors. Spending 70% of my time on teamwork, quality ‘me’ time is extremely important for me to think alone. That’s why I often work at home – I don’t have to worry what I should wear to go to work, and I don’t like having so many people around me when I’m working, especially when I have to come up with new ideas – a silent place is all that matters. Of course, it’s important to have a cup of joe at any time I need, too. I just love working at home because it makes me feel so comfortable and relaxed,’ said Topaz.

To most creative professionals, working may be a part of their lives because they always get inspired from their surroundings. Homes is actually the best workplace of all so that they could create with greatest freedom. Sharing the same vision, the new Bizhouse located in Causeway Bay is not just another traditional shared space. In this unprecedented multifunctional space where living and working rolled into one, each flat is designed to be highly flexible with mobile furniture and secret storage spaces so that a comfortable living room can be transformed into a meeting room in just seconds, allowing you to suit different needs of working and living within your own space.

For work or for life, it’s your call
Interview with Keith Lam

Keith Lam, a new media artist, renovated a two-storey house at Tai Nan Street in Sham Shui Po years ago into a hybrid space named Openground housing a bookstore, café, select shop, gallery and makerspace and it then became one of the best hipster spots. To Keith, this space is a multifaceted portal that allows visitors to decide whether they are here to work or to live.

‘This place exactly combines working and living. A lot of people come here to work because once they put on their headphones, they can focus on their work without getting disturbed while other visitors are enjoying lifestyle experiences. It is all about how you position yourself in the space – if you are hanging out with a friend, it is a place for gathering. If you are here for books, it turns into a reading lounge. This also applies to me – the portal is a creative studio when I am here to create something and sometimes it becomes an internet café when I am playing online games here,’ claimed Keith.

It is not easy to see a multifunctional space like Openground in Hong Kong because we are used to label the function of certain places but seldom dare to define the boundary between living and working by ourselves. The new Bizhouse located in Causeway Bay is exactly a break with traditional shared space. In this unprecedented multifunctional space where living and working rolled into one, each flat is designed to be highly flexible with mobile furniture and secret storage spaces so that a comfortable living room can be transformed into a meeting room in just seconds, allowing you to suit different needs of working and living within your own space.

Let Working Be a Part of Life
Interview with Kay Chan

Kay Chan is a designer who is committed to promote sustainability through creative designs from an innovative perspective with her unique artistic sense. She inspires the public to rethink about urban life, incorporating nature into the community. Her designs cover a wide range of formats – from the revival of ‘Salted Fish’ and the ‘Literacy Talk’ public installation, the major reason for Kay to keep on creating throughout the years is that she enjoys seeing working as part of her life.

‘People often talk about work-life balance which definitely makes sense. But why do they get used to separate working and living? It’s just like having totally different vibes which sounds a bit weird for me because indeed I’m working WHILE I’m living. I enjoy life as much as I enjoy my work – that’s why I keep having new ideas. Life is what inspires me to create – it’s actually the most essential element in my works, I would say. Because of that, my ideal working environment is a very light-hearted space. At the same time, since my work involves a lot of handcrafts, a good storage space which is fully equipped with utensils is also important. Sometimes when I’m working on large-scale installations, it’s not rare that I mess up the place. The working space often affects the living space and it seems hard to find a way to balance both sides,’ says Kay.

The newly completed Bizhouse in Causeway Bay exactly fit Kay’s needs. In this unprecedented multifunctional space where living and working rolled into one, each flat is designed to be highly flexible with mobile furniture and secret storage spaces so that a comfortable living room can be transformed into a meeting room in just seconds, allowing you to suit different needs of working and living within your own space. Kay added, ‘Causeway Bay is one of the most interesting communities where a lot of things are happening here every day and it’s also the starting point of many local activities. I believe that it would be great for nurturing creative talents and entrepreneurs.’

Redefining Work-Life balance
Interview with Yiu Sheung Yee

Yiu Sheung Yee is an editor as well as the owner of ‘Sheung’s Kitchen’, a fan page that she uses to keep record of her own life, feeding her readers both physically and mentally with her words and food. She considers herself as a homebody as she could totally live without stepping out of her house for a week. As long as her fridge is stocked and there are pens and paper on her desk, she would have no problem strike a balance between editor’s work and daily life. A home just feels right for both working and living.

‘To me, silence and comfort are the two keys to an ideal working space. I’m not up to ordinary office settings with white lighting and partitions. Open-plan offices doesn’t work for me either as I’d lose my privacy by being looked at what I’m doing which makes me unable to focus. Most of the time I like working at home so that I could have enough rest and leisure time. When you’re sick of working, you can start doing your housework or even cook yourself a meal. I often bake my own bread when I need to focus on editing for a rather long time – then working seems easier when I wait for the bakery to be done. Indeed, one’s attention span is about 40 minutes and afterwards we’d better stretch out a bit, take a little break or walk around to relax our body and mind. A great balance should be about the equilibrium between one’s physical state and mentality rather than between work and life,’ added Sheung Yee.

The newly completed Bizhouse located in Causeway Bay is also an unprecedented multifunctional space where living and working rolled into one. Each flat is designed to be highly flexible with mobile furniture and secret storage spaces so that a comfortable living room can be transformed into a meeting room in just seconds, allowing you to suit different needs of working and living within your own space, and strike a perfect work-life balance.

Enjoying a Mutable Music Space
Interview with Tonyi Ng

Tonyi Ng, the lead vocalist of the band The Bright Lights, is known for his expertise in using music and lyrics to illustrate people’s lives in the city nowadays. The song titled ‘Say It Properly’ he composed for the movie ‘Fagara’ was even nominated as the Best Original Film Song in the Hong Kong Film Awards. Tonyi has studied abroad in Los Angeles and lived in places including Taipei, Guangzhou and Beijing, but what made him return to Hong Kong for his music career a few years ago is the creative inspirations everywhere in this hybrid city.

‘A change of space gives me different stimulations. Whenever the scenery or the color of the environment changes, I feel triggered and that enriches my compositions. I believe that all inspirations originate from daily lives, so I never stay in the same place to compose. Drifting around on the street, watching a movie, having a dinner – all these are parts of our lives and they evoke certain emotions which will then become inspirations inside my mind. Only when we incorporate life into music, we feel what lifestyle and culture truly mean. Music is a way to present such a culture,’ remarked Tonyi.

As Tonyi said, a change of space affects our emotions which is exactly where our creative inspiration comes from – perhaps a place where the uses are interchangeable could boost creativity. The newly completed Bizhouse located in Causeway Bay is the right fit. In this unprecedented multifunctional space where living and working rolled into one, each flat is designed to be highly flexible with mobile furniture and secret storage spaces so that a comfortable living room can be transformed into a meeting room in just seconds. Home studioing has become a new trend so Bizhouse which allows you to suit different needs of working and living within your own space would be an ideal live-work space.
