JASPER YU Freelance photographer Jasper believes in living a fulfilling life with a vocation that feeds his soul—he believes in the adage that a good photo can speak a thousand words. Recently, he photographed our cover story at 8 St Thomas Walk (page 66) and our outdoor furniture feature with Sabrina Ho at Xtra (page 70) with much relish; peruse the stories from these pages.

editor’s note

What makes a house a home? To many, “home is where the heart is”. And that, in essence, is truly what makes a living space uniquely yours.

Tell us more about your design philosophy. Our company ethos is about bringing the British hallmark of quality to all areas of the company, be it personal service, the quality of build or the attention to detail.
