For this edition of our Creative Spaces series, The Style Sheet steps inside the refreshed space of award-winning design practice André Fu Studio, founded by one of Asia’s most celebrated and sought-after interior architects.

As well as designing iconic spaces such as The Upper House — where guests can immersive themselves in the creative’s quintessential style within the luxurious André Fu Suite — Fu has established the André Fu Living line of homewares, with its first standalone retail boutique at Pacific Place.

As for the studio’s refresh, Hong Kong-born, Cambridge-educated Fu’s goal was two-fold. ‘Firstly, I wanted to create a private retreat space for myself, and also to accommodate a generous meeting space for the team. To do this, I introduced a structural opening in the former meeting space on level 18, allowing a new bespoke spiral staircase to be installed to connect to the upper floor — a floor where a new meeting space, as well my personal studio, is located,’ he says. ‘This has added over 4,000 square feet to the studio, allowing multiple spaces for meetings and exchanges of different scale to take place and encouraging the team to interact on a more intimate level.’

The overall tone Fu set out to convey was one of a private gallery, achieved through floor-to-ceiling sliding doors and discreet museum quality lighting systems. As for most notable nooks and accents, the designer references the spiral staircase, where a shoji paper artwork by Japanese artist Shiho Fujiwara has been installed, along with the Salon, which boasts a charcoal artwork by Lee Bae, as favourites.

For those looking to get the look at home, Fu suggests the Contour armchair as featured in the Salon, or ‘bringing small vases to accentuate the room’, noting The Beacon or The Oasis as options from André Fu Living. Within the Pacific Place concept store, you’ll also find plenty more furniture and accents that’ll help achieve Fu’s inimitable style.
