World-renowned designer’s masterpiece: FLEUR PAVILION.
The highest level of humanities comes from a thoughtful and nuanced place of living. New World has gathered an all-star team — the fêted designer Shigeru Uchida and the leading landscape design firm Ohtori Consultants Co. Ltd. — to take the creative lead on the design of the clubhouse FLEUR PAVILION at FLEUR PAVILIA and the garden FLEUR ISLAND, subliming the perfect blend of charm and architectural intelligence of the location.
The design masters handpick objet d’art from many corners of the world and pay meticulous attention to intricacies in this project for crafting a lifestyle complementary to the residents of FLEUR PAVILIA. The architectural compound situated between the clubhouse and the garden resonates with a balance desired innately within. The blissful harmony of pine, bamboo, and plum blossom — a trinity imbued with the supreme integrity demonstrated in both Japanese and Chinese cultures — is bounded seamlessly together by the Japanese gardening ikebana “plant arts”. FLEUR PAVILIA is the ideal bespoke residence for intuitive urbanites with an acute desire for depth and integrity.
The root of clubhouse FLEUR PAVILION from Japanese chashitsu.
In 1993, Shigeru Uchida came up with a collection of three conceptual archetypes on chashitsu, named Ji-An, So-An, and Gyo-An, which was acquired by the British furniture brand Conran as their private collection two years later.
With in-depth knowledge of chashitsu design, Uchida and his team have injected all of their expertise in the design of FLEUR PAVILION with the idea of enabling every resident to feel the comfort of privacy just as much as the energy from genuine interactions with others. Chashitsu is a signature genius loci in Japanese culture, often only decorated with a calligraphy and a pot of ikebana. The ambience invites every resident to float blissfully in a state of peace and respite.
Aqua-sculpture, Dancing Water.
At the entrance of FLEUR PAVILIA there is a sculpture exuding eternal dynamism. Named Dancing Water, Uchida’s team carved the sculpture so the light catches the water’s flow, turning the shadows on the wall into dancing flecks of light. The reflecting moves inject zest into a space that revolves around serenity and tranquility.
Human beings never tire of movement in nature, be it water or fire, and are each intimately linked to its movements through their hearts, thoughts, and minds. Water’s purifying quality is reflected in Dancing Water, and every resident who passes by the artistic feature experiences a lift — a process of purifying the self and leaving all anxieties at the door.
“HUMAN BEINGS NEVER TIRE OF MOVEMENT IN NATURE, BE IT WATER OR FIRE, AND ARE EACH INTIMATELY LINKED TO ITS MOVEMENTS THROUGH THEIR HEARTS, THOUGHTS, AND MINDS”
World-class honored furniture only for FLEUR PAVILIA.
Shigeru Uchida and team have crafted some bespoke furniture pieces only for FLEUR PAVILIA. His creations have earned the team a long list of awards such as the Mainichi Design Award, JCD Design Award, Education Minister’s Art Encouragement Award, the Medal of Purple Ribbon and the Order of the Rising Sun, Gold Rays with Rossette by the Japanese government. Uchida took a step further to launch a Khora collection with Adrian Cheng’s Wander from Within exhibition from Milan Design Week 2017. Needless to say, Uchida is also involved in countless interior projects, such as Yohji Yamamoto’s first outpost “Aoyama Superposition,” Il Palazzo in Fukuoka, Fashion Museum in Kobe, Mojiko Hotel, etc.
A robust garden: FLEUR ISLAND.
Cheng’s creative team along with Japan-based Ohtori Consultants Co. Ltd. have breathed life into yet another masterpiece in FLEUR PAVILIA. In addition to pine, bamboo, and plum blossom, the FLEUR ISLAND sitting at the centre is the signature piece, marrying the exterior and interior ambience. Blending into FLEUR ISLAND, a 7.8-metre tall stainless steel sculpture harmoniously sitting on the island and branching out towards the sky creates a lively and vivacious ambience. The mélange of flora and bloom on FLEUR ISLAND, surrounded by a stream of water to go with ample sunlight, are to indulge residents in nature that is scarcely found in the dense city centre. While the themed plants are pine, bamboo and plum blossom that are traditionally known for their climate- resilient qualities (symbolic of human integrity), residents will enjoy the vitality throughout four seasons.
Water is deeply rooted at the core of FLEUR ISLAND. Still water acts as a mirror, enticing those who pass by to pause to reflect. The contrasting waterfall gives a tremendous energy to people that only nature can provide. Placed at the garden’s centre, FLEUR ISLAND is a masterpiece that gently nudges onlookers to take a moment of reflection, and indulge in that moment of living.
“STILL WATER ACTS AS A MIRROR, ENTICING THOSE WHO PASS BY TO PAUSE TO REFLECT. THE CONTRASTING WATERFALL GIVES A TREMENDOUS ENERGY TO PEOPLE THAT ONLY NATURE CAN PROVIDE.”
Embedded in history.
FLEUR PAVILIA endows a rich provenance of history and humanities being next to Kai Yuen. The prominent essayist Eileen Chang, political commentator Sima Changfeng, and the master of Peking Opera Meng Xiaodong all have their widely celebrated stories and footprints at Kai Yuen. Ohtori has taken these historical significance into his landscape design, as a testament to FLEUR PAVILIA’s position among such provenance and surroundings with a wish to be a landmark in the future.
