Landed Interior Design

It’s a whole different level out there when it comes to renovating landed properties like terraces, bungalows or villas. With a larger land space (or vertical area) coupled with the addition of a backyard, a garden, and sometimes a dedicated garage, landed homes definitely define the ‘more is more’ concept; a bigger volume of renovation works, wider scope for design, and definitely, a larger budget.

While some may be built by private property developers, others may be created entirely from scratch. Landed properties will often require the help of architects and interior designers with expertise in handling extensive structural works. On top of that, renovation guidelines also vary from condominiums and apartments. Here are a list of rules to look out for:

  • You will need to check out Lands Department’s Planning and Permission for Development and Building Works guidelines, which covers the different renovation works that do not require a permit.
  • For any other renovation works not listed in the Planning guidelines, you can apply via Lands Department’s web page.
  • Otherwise, you can engage a Qualified Person (QP) - usually an architect or interior designer to help you apply for those approvals - so you don’t have to.
