About the Awards

Kowloon Development Company has joined forces with HKT Smart Living for the first time ever to launch the “Manor Hill Vertical Space1 Design Awards”, which will be judged by a panel drawn from the Hong Kong Interior Design Association. Among other attributes, Manor Hill features a 3.5-meter super-high floor-to-floor height2 and has introduced the concept of vertical space1. Interior designers are therefore invited to submit entries that take advantage of the above-mentioned vertical space1 and apply today’s technologies to designing dream smart homes for Manor Hill residents.

Entry Categories
