It can be quite seldom for one to be featured in an award-winning design. However, just last year, luxury brands BRABBU and Boca do Lobo came to be a part of design worthy of bronze in the A’Design Award and Competition: the Cullinan by Cameron Interiors. The firm had worked with projects of varying dimensions up to that point – in fact, this wasn’t their first award-winning work.
These projects ranged from small to large scale residential and even commercial and corporate design projects, always striving to provide unique and comprehensive design solutions, completely tailored to their clients’ persona. But among all of these commendable projects, the Cullinan stands out for its unique approach to the studio’s core values: aesthetics, functionality, personality, and value. “We aim at providing a high standard of quality in terms of design, craftsmanship, and service.”
As most interior design projects, the Cullinan had its outlines defined by the clients, i.e., the owners of the apartment, which just happened to be big fans of music and film, resulting in a desire, on their part, to have a space that could serve as a home cinema. Guided by their mission to create personalized interiors, the studio delivered. The living room features warm wood flooring that meets with floor-to-ceiling windows which reveal a majestic overview of the Hong Kong harbour. These windows are accompanied by heavy blackout curtains that not only prevent the room from overheating but also serve a major role in the owners’ request: the creation of the perfect ambience for a home cinema.

Sika is a deer specimen rooted in Japan whose strength and elegance inspired SIKA Armchair. The most distinctive features of this wing chair are the button detailing on the inner back, the nailhead trim, and the brass details of the arms. That is why SIKA high-back chair fits a strong living room set.
To bring this home, the main living area eludes a nautical feel granted by the curvaceous lines that surround the room, mirroring waves echoing throughout the structure which are complemented by the luscious colours chosen for the room’s colour scheme. This is especially noticeable in the blue circular rug, hugged by a round cream sofa, that fades from a white shade into increasingly darker shades of blue from the centre – where a golden centre table can be found – outward, effectively evoking the ocean in the middle of this splendid living room. This, like all the other details in the apartment, was meticulously thought out and perfectly executed.
To create the Eden centre table, Boca do Lobo used the highest quality materials and textures in the world, giving them shapes through objects that create a cosmopolitan luxury environment. This majestic table is fully made of polished cast brass with a delicately engraved top.
Originally, the apartment was compartmentalized into four rooms divided among 1294 square feet. This made for relatively small floor plans, that left the apartment feeling slightly constrained. In order to optimize the use of this space, the team changed the layout of the apartment. This was done by opening up one of the walls in the kitchen, instantly making it feel wider and thus creating a more breathable and spacious area, and also by creating an ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet in the master bedroom, maximizing the room’s potential.
