We love to see your workspaces, when we get a chance to see your whole workplace it's an extra special treat. Today we're peeking into a Hong Kong laundromat remodelled to be a photo studio.
Lifehacker reader cjdillon1989 has had the unique experience of converting a run-down factory in an industrial district of Hong Kong into a really striking studio. He writes:
I work in an industrial space in Hong Kong that used to contain a commercial laundry.
The space has two main attractions. It's huge-about 3,500 square feet-and its high ceilings, southern exposure and large windows mean we get lots of natural light. We took advantage of the space and the light to create a studio that we rent out for photo, video and film shoots.
The neighbourhood is gritty and was home to several hundred small factories before most of them moved to southern China. Despite the grit, the view from my window is green and several hundred egrets live in the trees outside my window.
The experience of buying and renovating the space became the basis for a book about Hong Kong property.
It's a great creative space, and I love the expression on people's faces when they see the interior for the first time!
Check out the photos below to see the before pictures, shots of the reception area and workspace, and the studio space.
