When the young 30-something owners bought this apartment, their brief to Fuse Concept was for a Scandinavian style apartment that reflected the husband’s Swedish heritage.
Since the homeowners weren’t particularly fond of this resale flat’s layout, they were open to restructuring the space. So Artistroom turned this dimly lit resale HDB flat on Havelock Road into an airy and comforting home.
Can an HDB flat offer the experience of landed housing? Wanting to test the spatial potential of the standard Singaporean flat, architecture-trained couple Liting Lee and Khoon Toong Chow of nitton architects were determined to create a ‘mini house’ out of their new five-room BTO flat in Sengkang.
Ask anyone if they have seen the blockbuster movie Crazy Rich Asians, based on the eponymous novel written by Kevin Kwan, they’ll most likely say yes. Some might even reenact their favourite scenes. But ask anyone if they have seen Crazy Rich Asians leading man’s KL home, whom he shares with his beautiful wife Liv Lo, the answer will probably be no. But this will now change. Take a peek inside the heartthrob’s uber chic Kuala Lumpur home designed by MIL Design & Construction.
Singaporeans are no strangers to quick island vacays, but the owners of this BTO flat have done one better by enlisting Design Zage to help transform their home into a cosy pad with a resort-like ambiance, so they get to enjoy the feeling of being on holiday everyday.
The new owner of this Everton Park unit is a huge fan of mid-century design. His main objective for the refurbishment of this resale flat was to have a home that would bring out the beauty of mid-century modern furniture pieces. With that in mind, Mikael Teh from Monocot Studio undertook the task of transforming this apartment into the charming space that it now is.
Despite being housed in a building that’s more than 20 years old, this freshly renovated apartment looks young and vibrant. The team from D’ Marvel Scale looked outside for inspiration, subtly bringing nature into the interiors.
This apartment at Rivertree Residences is a juxtaposition of warm textures and cool colours. Marble, wood, and concrete are put together to bring about a raw yet refined space. Conceptualised and built by Design Zage for a young couple, the home is luxurious and charming, but also minimal and modern.
