Shophouse Preserved, Occupied by Cafe and Office, Named Top 5 Design Space in Hong Kong

From CNN: "For years, the handsome stone shophouse at the corner of Ormsby and Shepherd Streets in Tai Hang stood sadly neglected, a vacant autobody shop on the ground floor and two empty flats above.  Most residents in the neighborhood assumed it would be torn down and redeveloped like so many other old buildings.  Late last year, though, the interior design company Feelsogood rented and restored the building.  Its design studio now occupies most of the space and the back of the building is now home to the Unar Coffee Company, a smartly-designed place that makes brilliant use of the adjacent alleyway, which it covered with an awning and transformed into an outdoor living room."  Full article here.
