This modern apartment in China is a perfect example of “East meets West” – a term often used to describe instances where design and culture from the opposite corners of the compass meet and mingle with astute poise. In the case of this apartment on the 22nd floor of a new, high-rise residential building in Dongguan in southeast China, this exact term couldn’t have found a better implementation!

This faces a walnut paneled wall beside the wide veranda which overlooks a panoramic view of the city stretching out below. Meanwhile, the tea table, which is bordered by the backside of the sofa, features a large table which is perfect for entertaining.

In the apartment’s “Night Zone,” although the same clean-lined and comforting aesthetic choices abound, their utilization is definitively intended for private use. The master bedroom employs yet another metal-framed, glass wall which separates the sleeping section from the marble and walnut wood infused master bath on the one side and the walk-in closet as well as the private office space to the other side.

Walnut wood veneers sheath parts of the walls creating a soothing backdrop for the various artworks that are showcased. Another element that characterizes the private quarters are the built in furnishings, such as built-in window seats, the oblong metal desk/vanity shelf which runs across one of the two children’s bedrooms, as well as the built-in metal framed bookcases hanging from the ceiling.

This apartment embraces a design aesthetic which is both welcoming and impressive; determined and yet soothing; entirely modern and yet made all the more so by the respect and homage paid to the heritage of its residents. “East meets West” may be just a term, but in this setting it becomes a living testament.
