As repeat clients of Joey Khu ID, the homeowners, a married couple, knew their new home was in the good hands. The design team shares: “They gave us free reign with the design, and our prior knowledge of their lifestyles came in handy in proposing flexible spaces for entertaining and work-from-home needs.” With that information, the team employed glass sliding doors to increase the visibility and sense of connection between the different spaces.

The designers turned the cookspace into an open kitchen to welcome more daylight. For a punch of colour, they applied dusky blue veneer finishes on the cabinetry. The team explains: “Having some colour deviates from the gloomy look.” Deep vertical grooves run down the veneer wall covering that fronts the entrance, and is softly illuminated by a Karim Rashid Apex wall lamp.

To glam up the common bathroom, the designers used a dark medley of Dekton surfaces and a strategically-placed light strip to enhance the moody ambience. The designers say: “We definitely wanted to make a statement in this bathroom, as its purpose is a powder room to serve guests.”

Seeing how the bay window seat in the master bedroom was quite redundant in terms of function, the designers decided to convert it into a console table. For greater dimension, the custom-built console has been integrated with matching veneer panels that frame the entire bay window.
