Music Room vinyl library opens in Sou Fujimoto-designed Potato Head Hong Kong

A new vinyl listening space has opened in Hong Kong for record collectors, analogue enthusiasts and the city’s ‘left-field dance music’ scene.

The Music Room – located within Potato Head Hong Kong, designed by Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto – houses over 8,000 records, hand-picked by German DJ and producer Johnny Hiller and selection of renowned dealers.

It sits behind Kaum restaurant and is accessed via a hidden corridor and doorway. The last space to be completed in the complex, the Music Room features wood panelling, mid-century inspired furniture and a soundsystem selected by Hiller that ticks all the right boxes.

This includes JBL Pro Blue series loudspeakers, Macintosh tube pre amps and amplifiers, a custom-made rotary mixer from Japan, vintage Klipschorn speakers and, of course, a pair of Technics SL-1200s.

Potato Head Hong Kong opened in late June and is Fujimoto’s first project in the city. He has used the thin white frames that have become a signature of his work – from House NA in Tokyo to the 2013 Serpentine Pavilion – in the store’s entrance. They create display space for Potato Head’s homeware store and a coffee bar, which sits in front of the restaurant and listening space.

The Music Room will host a series of listening events, from classic LP evenings to a monthly Ethiopian jazz 7″s night, while you can catch music from across the soul spectrum on normal nights.

Find the Music Room at 100 Third Street, Sai Ying Pun in Hong Kong.
