We highlight five houses in Singapore that show how you can bring the grungy ruggedness of old factories and warehouses into your living space.

The industrial design trend is still going strong, and we’ve seen more than our fair share of homes with brick walls, cement screed floors and wood and metal accents. But every now and then, we stumble upon a home that takes the fundamentals of the Industrial look, and gives it a fresh spin that’s worthy of a second look. Here are five homes in Singapore, ranging from HDB flats to condo apartments, that have adopted the industrial aesthetic in different ways. By Arman Shah.
The red brick wall is a mainstay of the Industrial look. Introducing this to your home effortlessly adds texture and depth to any space. Here, D’ Initial Concept incorporated the walls into this condo apartment, but matched it with a contemporary interior design. This refreshing twist gives the home a more laidback appeal without having to adhere to the material palette associated with a specific look. The kitchen features a half-length brick wall to complement the adjoining glass enclosure, while the living room features a floor-to-ceiling brick wall that brings all the design elements together. The rest of the home, found here, is just as impressive.
While there is a set of conventional rules that you can adhere by to achieve the Industrial look, feel free to throw caution to the wind and come up with your own interpretation of the design concept. This 4-room HDB flat – designed by Linear Space Concepts – combines the homeowners’ love of colours, patterns and vintage accessories to create a look that’s described as “Industrial kampong”.
