A HONG KONG restaurant has been named the best interior of 2014 at the World Festival of Interiors in Singapore.
“MOTT32” by Joyce Wang Studio beat 60 projects to win the title. It was praised by the judges for its dramatic transformation from a basement storage facility into one of the city’s most beautiful eating destinations.

The restaurant takes inspiration from its heritage as a storage site for expensive Chinese heirlooms, and the décor features Chinese propaganda and industrial materials doubling as furniture and light fittings.
The look is combined with a modern industrial aesthetic featuring exposed brickwork, light fittings housed in metal mesh cages and former vaults turned into exclusive booths.
There is an emphasis on raw materials such as concrete and metal.
“It was a Hong Kong project, it explored Hong Kong culture both past and present, which makes the project such a special one and winning this award even better,” explained Joyce Wang.
Inside – World Festival of Interiors 2015 will run November 14-16, 2015.
