editor’s note

When you talk to architects and interior designers about their work, they often cite the locale of a project, be it a home, hotel or restaurant, as a primary source of inspiration. And that, in part, is what makes their stories so fascinating—their interpretation of the surrounding environment, and how they translate it into architecture and interior decor. Our cover story on Le Cap (p.28), a luxury development at Kau To Shan that boasts sweeping views of the mountains and Tolo Harbour, is a perfect illustration of this. The surroundings reminded renowned French architect and interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon of the landscape of the South of France, and so he worked with property developer Wing Tai on a design that would blend seamlessly with the beautiful natural environment. Designer Kelly Behun is…

ANNIE LEIBOVITZ: PORTRAITS 2005–2016 PHAIDON Artists have been making extraordinary portraits of the mighty for centuries, from Velázquez’s Philip IV to Lucian Freud’s Queen Elizabeth II. But arguably the greatest portrait-taker of our age isn’t a painter but a photographer: Annie Leibovitz. Her career spans nearly five decades, starting in 1970 when she began creating legendary portraits for Rolling Stone followed by three decades at Vanity Fair and Vogue. This 11-year overview of her work includes images of those we consider modern royalty: Venus and Serena Williams, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Sheryl Sandberg, Anna Wintour, Caitlyn Jenner, Gloria Steinem, Joan Didion and Barack Obama. Oh—and actual royalty, from when Elizabeth II posed for the photographer in 2011. All of which are accompanied with witty comments from Leibovitz, plus a lyrical foreword by author…

hand-sculpted and timeless

First glimpsed through an enticing wrought-iron gate, Le Cap is a highly individual development in Hong Kong’s unspoilt Kau To Shan area. While within convenient reach of the bustling city, this serene, wooded spot is utterly unique in Hong Kong. Standing on the peak of Kau To Shan, Le Cap enjoys breathtaking views of its verdant slopes, Tolo Harbour and the azure ocean. Beyond Le Cap’s elegant gate winds a wide landscaped path fringed with Mediterranean plants—cypress trees, bougainvillea and aromatic lavender. Flanking this are its 1930s modernist-inspired buildings with carved, curved corners. Sculpted from the landscape, these curvilinear buildings are unique in Hong Kong whose architecture is typically hard-edged. Le Cap offers a multisensory experience: boundless views of blue skies and green slopes meld with the garden’s fragrant smells. Commissioned by premium…

HONG KONG: EAST MEETS WEST EXPLORE A LITTLE OF HONG KONG’S HISTORY AND ART, ALONG WITH ITS CULINARY DELIGHTS, WITH TAMSIN BRADSHAW’S SELECTION M+ PAVILION M+ Pavilion is the precursor to Hong Kong’s M+, the Herzog & de Meuron-designed museum for visual culture due to open in 2019. But M+ Pavilion is a worthy sight in its own right. Designed by Vpang Architects with Jet Architecture and Lisa Cheung, its cantilevered outdoor terrace appears to float, and its reflective external walls allow it to blend in with the green landscape around it, making for a striking destination. The sky-lit, polished concrete interior space makes this a great place to contemplate art in calm, quiet surroundings. westkowloon.hk RED SUGAR One of Hong Kong’s hottest new bars, thanks to its spacious terrace, Red Sugar sits over the…
