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.’
