The Pavilia Hill is a luxury bespoke residence in the heart of Hong Kong and curated by Cultural Entrepreneur Adrian Cheng under New World Development’s The Artisanal Movement.
The design pays tribute to nature and artisanship. Its interior and landscape designs are all based on Wabi-Sabi, a Japanese aesthetic and worldview centred on the acceptance of transience and imperfection.
Based on the principles of Wabi-Sabi, we designed a visceral and texturally rich book to reflect the serenity of the main feature of this residence, the Tranquil Zen gardens by Japanese Zen priest and landscape architect Shunmyo Masuno.
A raw stone texture was chosen for the book’s hard cover, to resemble the special stone sculptures’ sublime presence in The Pavilia Hill. In addition, by deploying various printing methods in combination with a selection of 10 types of texturally rich fancy paper, the final effect created a striking visual impact and sensual experience for readers of the book.
