    30 June 2020

    Highly Accessible

    Located at No. 12 Pak Sha Road in Causeway Bay, Bizhouse offers 12 fully furnished units in 3 distinct sizes and a communal rooftop specially designed to create a more connected and natural urban area. As the microcosm of Hong Kong, the vibrant and multifaceted Causeway Bay District is a convenient location for businesses, shopping and entertainment, along with art and culture. Carefully crafted with an eye for details, each flat’s cosy and modern interiors are completed with stylish decors, bespoke furniture, and built-in home appliances, whereby tenants can change their work or live modes anytime all day.

    Curating the Neighbourhood

    Mr. Ricky Kon Wai Lui, Chief Operating Officer of Hysan Development Co. Ltd. shares the rationale behind this first-of-its-kind project, “Hysan, deeply rooted in Causeway Bay, has been taking initiatives to curate new ideas, styles and events for the neighbourhood in sync with changes over time.  Bizhouse is something new both for Hysan and for the community. The idea is to ensure the tenants can live and work in the area and there is no need for them to even leave the neighbourhood for days or weeks on end! Lee Gardens Area features all sorts of convenient offerings: from local-style Cha Chaan Teng and fancy restaurants; a labyrinth of side streets with wet markets, street stalls and local shops; to luxurious shopping malls and office towers like Hysan Place and Lee Gardens. All your everyday needs are just within reach.”

    Lui says the eclectic area and this new project serve as a perfect backdrop to incubate new business and community ideas for Hong Kong. “The advent of new technology enables entrepreneurs to bring ideas to life, and many startups have sprung up creating a demand for multi-purpose spaces. Hysan sees a need do something special, which is to forge a new space that combines the best of living and working in Hong Kong’s commercial heartland.”

    Spatial Versatility

    “At Bizhouse,” explains Lui, “we have carefully redefined a flex space which goes beyond a living space to encompass a workstation. ‘Swift conversion’ is the keyword here. Each flat at Bizhouse, whatever the size, is designed with bespoke furniture that can help transform a living setup into a variety of working environments with ease, and for whatever purposes, like solo work, multi-work, teamwork, and formal and casual meetings.”

    Space-wise Design

    The 6-storey building was rebuilt with an elevator in 2003. The interior redesign and décor makeover of this charming low-rise were carried out by the award-winning architectural design studio Bean Buro. Its founder Ms. Lorène Faure says, “In this modern space, we are looking for ultimate flexibility and efficiency. The overall design, featuring simplicity and small details, adds a fresh and elegant touch to the building, creating sensational interiors.” Bean Buro’s Co-founder Mr. Kenny Kinugasa-Tsui supplements, “a flexible space must be equipped with smart mechanisms to move and conceal furniture either under elevated platforms or onto the walls. Every piece of furniture is part of a large storage unit for the space-saving purpose.”  Besides, brand-new water pipes and drainage systems were installed in the entire building while works on electricity rewiring and window inspection were also completed.

    Inclusion of Tradition and Modernity

    One of Bizhouse’s major attraction is its exceptionally convenient location and linkage. Bizhouse is only a 2-minute walk from Causeway Bay MTR, a hub for easy commute. As one of the busiest neighbourhoods on Hong Kong Island, Causeway Bay comprises Grade A retail and office towers merging seamlessly with characterful low-rises, and intersected by tree-lined avenues and bustling side streets. The renowned street market at Jardine’s Bazaar are among the photogenic spots which can easily spark entrepreneurial creativity and inspiration.

    App-enabled Security System for Peace of Mind

    Back to Bizhouse, a Resident App is adopted to assist the work of the Management Office and it also facilitates the day-to-day communications between Bizhouse staff and tenants. Simply click on their phone app to connect the Door Entry Interface, for example, and tenants can grant access to bona fide visitors. The app also enables the Management Office to perform security monitoring in the common areas of the premise on a 24/7 basis.

    New Lifestyle for Urbanites

    Bizhouse brings a new dimension to the combined ideas of living and working. The communal rooftop space is design to help provide gathering space for tenants, and also to help enhance bonding between tenants at Bizhouse. 12 furnished flats with three sizes ranging from 317, 392 and 546 square feet are available for lease from today. Each flat comes with home and studio facilities, including but not limited to fibre optics internet connection, HD TV, fully controlled split type air-conditioner, fully fitted kitchenette, built-in microwave oven with grill, refrigerator, washer dryer and bathroom ventilator. Entrepreneurs and creative professionals are welcomed to enjoy this new hybrid live-work concept in Causeway Bay.
