【SCMP】How this Hong Kong developer is blending old and new to produce modern buildings


LOFTER GROUP, a professional building services operator, has collected about 100 classic items left behind by the owners of 26 ageing buildings it has redeveloped and refurbished over the past nine years.

Carol Chow, who founded Lofter in 2012, decided to turn two ground-level shops at its recently acquired HK$600 million (US$77 million), 50-year-old tong lau (tenement building) in Prince Edward into a 4,000 square feet Concept Studio to showcase the collection until August 27.
