House in Sha Tin by Millimeter Interior Design Limited

The House in Sha Tin is situated in the Hong Kong district of its name, and was designed by local firm Millimeter Interior Design Limited. Adapting an already existing 40-year-old structure, the redesign incorporates a sustainable green approach, reducing environmental impact. The facade has been built over the preexisting walls, giving a new appearance and reducing waste. LED lights have been incorporated into the chrome garage resulting in a futuristic look, while a small maple tree has been planted in the central annex of the house. Other environmentally friendly features include lights turning off automatically when no one is present in a room, aluminum panels that prevent heat from the sun entering the house and reducing air conditioner usage, and large solar panels that provide energy to the home.
