Gough Street is a storied locale that has borne witness to much of the modern history of Hong Kong, and has long been a unique point of confluence for an exotic blend of eastern and western culture. Designer Timothy Oulton has been present on Gough Street in Hong Kong since its inception, setting out to create inspiring interior experiences anchored in the values of authentic handcraftsmanship and materials, daring creativity and an ethos of hosting. The overall designs of Gough’s on Gough, as well as all fixtures and furnishings, have been fabricated in the same workshops that Timothy Oulton uses in the creation of its distinctive furniture collections, all with the intention of providing an inspiring backdrop for the guests’ experiences. The dining room and Moonstone bar are generously appointed, using authentic handcrafted materials and finishes that convey a heady ambience. And the menu, conceived by chef Arron Rhodes, is anchored in a strong modern British cooking philosophy, while exploring an elemental Asian purism as well as other international influences.

The Hong Kong Space Museum reopened to the public on April 25 after over two years of major renovations costing around US$4m. The exterior, notably the distinctive dome that makes it a Tsim Sha Tsui landmark, is still the same. However, the interior has been extensively refurbished, and the displays have been enhanced, with a large number of interactive displays and a number of brand new exhibits. The unique egg-shaped dome makes the 8,000-square-metre museum one of the most famous landmarks in Hong Kong.
