BLVD was jointly established by Mr. Du Yun and Ms. Liu Honglei in 2001. ‘To start with simplification; to end with perfection’ conveys their shared pursuit of ‘perfectionism and harmony’. Honglei Liu explains to us how his team create a series of excellent works, such as 5 star Hotels and high-end offices that perfectly combine scene, emotion and artistic conception.
Q. Why did you get into Interior Design?
A. I majored in architecture. After graduation, I gradually got familiar with the design industry because of a few friends working on it. I found that the interior design could influence people’s special sense more directly and durably, which really attracted me.
Q. How did you start up your career?
A. At the very beginning, I got involved in some five-star hotel and high-end office interior design bidding projects. Luckily, we almost won all of them. That really built my confidence for designing. Later on, I went to Canada and worked in Yabu Pushelberg, II By IV and other design companies. These experiences consolidated my determination to interpret the beauty of ‘artistic conception’ that is highly praised in oriental aesthetics through internationalised and modernised language.
