Portfolio Sam, MingShum Lo @ 2003 - 2011 Engaged in the design industry since 2002. Studied for three years in Hong Kong IVE - department of interior & environmental design - and consequently worked in three different practices (including an international company) for 5 years. I have been involved in different types of interior design projects - including residential, retail, restaurant, hotel and casino. I have also been involed in concept development for some of the projects (e.g. Beijing Sheraton Spa, Japanese restaurant and Bombay Sapphire exhibition, etc.). Working as a Site Design Coordinator(Crown Macau Hotel) and working with Hirsch Bedner Associates, I developed my knowledge of hospitality design and the awareness of the details within a space. Good detailing is the most important element of the spatial quality. I am used to work with people from different backgrounds (language, nationality). I can handle & manage the tender drawing package and the presentation drawings of any project. In 2010, I decided to further study interior design in London - Chelsea College of Art and Design to improve my design thinking and I am now capable of developing a project from concept to detail drawing and even site coordination.

Hospitality Project - Beijing Sheraton (Japanese Restaurant) Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) @ 2009 - 2010

For my first two years in HBA, I mainly work on the interior design tender drawing package. Since the Jiangyin and Beijing Sheraton project, I became more involved in design development. I handled the presentation drawings and the whole set of tender drawings by overseeing the international draftsmen team. We wanted to create a modernized Japanese dining space but with a touch of traditional Japanese style. The design concept was developed and transformed based on the key elements from the Zen garden.

Hospitality Project - Beijing Sheraton (Spa) Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) @ 2009 - 2010

Spa centre with two levels, the staircase is the junction between the spa room and the rest of the facilities. Because of the Shine Spa brand of Sheraton, we used shiny gemstone to develop the floor pattern and circular screen, we also used shiny wall covering and fiber optic lighting with crystals to enhance the sparkling environment.

Exhibition project - Bombay Sapphire Joey Ho Design Ltd. @ 2005 Bombay Sapphire exhibition was a crossover project between art, design and business. Bombay sapphire were going to display 5 glasses which won a design completion they had held. At the same time, they invited 5 artists/designers to create an art installation at the same venue – the Hong Kong Fringe club. We were asked to dress up the venue and define the space for the 5 glasses and the 5 art installations. The theme of the exhibition was “Deep Blue”. We used mirrors in blue color as a major element within the space to create the feeling of illusion & imagination.

Academy Project - The Chair on the hill sees the sun going down Chelsea College of Art & design @ 2011


Academy Project - Pavilion Courtyard Chelsea College of Art and Design @ 2010

We were asked to design an accommodation space for one student in the courtyard of the Chelsea College on Millbank, but my project fulfills much more: I wanted the courtyard be a public space beyond the private accommodation building and be part of the Chelsea College, not just a building on its own. It is almost like a neighborhood, a place where students can come and stay during the day. At night, the client could enjoy the entire space for himself. The building will connect the ground level of the road and lower ground level of the existing Chelsea College building. The entrance of the space is defined by different levels of the design which are subtle but irresistible. An existing Henry Moore sculpture will be relocated at the corner where it is easily seen from many angles even from the Tate Britain oppisite the road. The roof top of the new building will also connect with the college’s banqueting hall’s corridor and guests can access it for a view or some fresh air.

Academy Project - Still and motion picture Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education @ 2005

This is an extension project for one of the famous cinema in Hong Kong. The new spaital arrangement of the ground level is almost like a prefunction area which encourage people to communicate and interact before and after watching movies. This place also aims to let people experience motion pictures from different perspectives - visuals, sound, information, scripts, music,etc.

Night Scene


Academy Project - Sunday Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education @ 2004

This was a project to design an office for a textile merchandising company which is located in the centre of the city with a good harbour view. My idea was to share the good view and the sunlight with all the staff, that is why the corridor, pantry and meeting areas are located next to the window side. This arrangement not only able to let more light enter to the space but also can enhance the working atmosphere. Some spacing is also saved due to the one side corridor layout.

Art & Cultural project - Black Box Exercise “Images of Asia” @ 2003 Black Box Exercise started in 1995, as an art education program launched by Zuni Icosahedron which provides a platform for people from different backgrounds to express their thoughts within a black colored box of 30 X 30cm. One of the boxes was mine which exhibited in the “Images of Asia” festival, 2003 in Copenhagen. It was a post-SARS period. I wanted to deliver the message that Hong Kong is recovered from the disease to Copenhagen. My black box then became a container of “Hong Kong air”. “Hong Kong air” was like a souvenir which was a pack of air with a photograph inside, which were both captured in Hong Kong.

In August and September 2003, “Black Box Exercise” was invited to the opening ceremony of “Images of Asia”, the International Arts and Culture Festival of Copenhagen, organized by the Danish Centre for Culture and Development. The theme of this exhibition was “SARS in Asia”, and there were 70 black boxes on display, coming from Hong Kong, Macau, Bangkok and Taipei. This International Arts and Culture Festival opened in August in Copenhagen and was Europe’s second largest arts and culture festival that year. Her Royal Highness Princess Alexandra officially inaugurated the Grand Opening of the Images of Asia Festival 2003 by opening a Black Box exhibit created and presented in person by one of the Hong Kong delegates, Mr. Sam Lo. The purpose of the Festival was to enable the people in both Europe and Asia to have a better understanding of the contemporary arts and culture in Asia, as well as to pave the way for future collaboration among the various European and Asian cities. The Festival was held in eight different cities in Denmark, and the Festival covered programmes of art education, performing arts, visual arts, media arts, and conferences. “Black Box Exercise” was one of the major events in the area of art education, and there were 2,500 students and artists from eight cities of Denmark, and 2,000 from more than 10 Asian cities participating in the workshops and exhibitions.
