We’re delighted to have made the move to our lovely new office in Hong Kong, in the fabulous industrial-style Cheong Lee Building. Built in the 1960s, it’s on Tsat Tsz Mui Road in Quarry Bay, and comes with gorgeous high ceilings and lots of natural light. We share The Studio with some fabulous creative types and it already feels like home, a hive of creative activity where we’d love to have you come visit us to kick start your next project!
But wait.. there is more to it… when we started to look into the history of Tsat Tsz Mui Road, we discovered a fascinating and haunting story. Fact or fiction? You decide.
Tsat Tsz Mui translates as ‘Seven Sisters’, in reference to a strange urban myth about seven 19th century girls who lived in the neighbourhood and vowed never to marry, remaining sisters forever. When one of them was found a husband by her parents, they all made a suicide pact, jumping into the sea hand-in-hand. The story starts getting a bit sketchy at this point, as legend has it that seven boulders appeared on the beach the following day. In 1911 a swimming pavilion was built on Tsat Tsz Mui road, but it was claimed to be haunted by the sisters and the cause of several drownings of men nearby.
Now the street is a mix of industrial buildings and new office complexes with no sign of the seven sisters remaining. We’re loving our new home and are ready to welcome you for a creative breakfast, to brainstorm about your next project or simply to share a drink.
