In this small apartment blessed with high ceilings, designer Alvin Ang and his team from Prozfile capitalised on the double volume space by creating a split-level design layout in the main living space.
The star feature, a study loft suspended directly from the ceiling without the need for pillar footing, instantly expands the home’s usable space. Here, the homeowners – a couple in their early 40s – have some sort of privacy when getting work done, but still remain visually connected to the living space below.
A single flight of stairs – devoid of stair risers – bordered by thin metal rods float upstairs to the crux of the home. Similar treatment is also evident in the guest room where a loft bed is built to maximise available space.
With wood and iron taking centre stage, the apartment’s neutral colour palette of white, grey and cream is apt to maintain a bright and airy interior. For added interest, Alvin punctuated the living area with a bright blue sofa and the master bedroom with lavender painted walls. Furnishings, on the other hand, are kept to a minimum.
Despite the apartment’s spatial limitations, the design team from Prozfile was able to create a cosy dwelling for the well-travelled couple with more than enough room to live and display their growing collection of objects they procure from all over the world.
