Inside a Hong Kong village house like no other – a stylish, functional family home
Hong Kong’s village houses are as cookie-cutter as they come but one Sai Kung abode stands out from the rest
Hong Kong village houses are often studies in uniform ugliness, built cheaply to cookie-cutter plans. Think small windows, exposed pipes and exterior walls blighted by air conditioners and other eyesores.
