Have you ever wondered how an architect would design his own home? This intimate home tour of 22 Dunbar Walk, designed by Edmund Ng, offers a unique insight into the mind of an architect.
The tour will encourage participants to consider the role of design in creating spaces that enhance our quality of living and allow creativity and productivity to flourish. The architect will also showcase the art collection that he shares with his wife, gallerist Jazz Chong, highlighting how the design of the building complements these artworks, and how they in turn bring elements of the architecture into focus.
