When you live in a city that’s as dense as Hong Kong, personal space is the greatest luxury of all. Doubly so if you’re fortunate enough to have your own private hideaway, tucked up and away from the bustle of urban living. In partnership with local developer China Overseas Mechanical & Electrical Engineering Limited (COMEL), Akvo Spiralift recently completed a project that raises the bar for multi-use residential spaces. Perched on a mountain slope with sprawling views of the city, this real estate development features five detached homes built side by side. As the 8th most densely populated city in the world, it goes without saying that every square foot of a home in Hong Kong should be optimized.

So why shouldn’t the same be true for outdoor areas ? One of the five homes in this development has a pool outfitted with an Akvo movable floor, transforming it from a single-purpose amenity into a multi-use entertainment space. When the floor is lowered, the homeowner and their guests can enjoy a dip with a view; when the floor is raised to be flush with the rest of the patio, it becomes an extension of the outdoor lounging and dining area.
