Accumulated Chic

Inside the 85-square-metre Hollywood Road home of an art and book collector

Mathias Helleu’s apartment is on the 23rd floor of an old building in Hong Kong’s Sheung Wan district, where hip art galleries and antique dealers combine with dried seafood vendors and Chinese temples to fill the narrow streets.

The interior of his 85-square-metre space is likewise an eclectic mix of many pieces from different places and times.
