Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer Audemars Piguet has opened a second AP House in Hong Kong. Located in K11 MUSEA in TsimShaTsui on the Kowloon Peninsula, it provides the perfect setting for watch aficionados to relax, reflect, connect or disconnect, while enjoying the breath-taking view of Victoria Harbour.
Designed as an authentic home away from home for lovers of the brand, the AP House concept was created in collaboration with some of the Manufacture’s most valued clients.
The AP House at K11 MUSEA complements the first AP House in Hong Kong and Asia opened at H Queen’s in the heart of the Central business district in 2018. It features a façade with liquid steel panels in a gold shade that exude an air of exclusivity and mystery.
Stepping inside, the welcome foyer gives clients an immediate sense of homecoming. Designed like a small gallery, it features a velvet padded and textured wall covering conveying warmth, comfort and a tactile experience that extends to the rest of the 186-square-metre urban retreat. Boasting an abundance of greenery, the lounge’s interior interweaves vernacular influences with the brand’s sophisticated and contemporary styling.
The focal point of the AP House is a central feature bar with design elements that pay tribute to Chinese culture. Its circular shape is inspired by the traditional red lantern while the green jade onyx countertop resembles the magical and graceful beauty of jade – a highly prized stone in Chinese culture. The contemporary interior design is also complemented with a selection of artworks by prominent artists, sculptors and photographers, with some documenting the city’s evolution.
Stepping outside into the terrace, guests can enjoy the panoramic view of Victoria Harbour, one of Hong Kong’s most iconic sights. The 74 square-metre terrace also features a wall of serene plants that bring positive energy to the space.
The AP House will also play host to exclusive events where guests can discover the Manufacture’s creations, its savoir-faire and its place in today’s world.
