Project type: Inter-terrace house
Floor area: 5,500sqft

As food and wine connoisseurs, the homeowners get to enjoy a statement-making dining area with a curated material palette of wood, white marble and grey tiles. It stands next to a feature wall sporting abstract black and white prints, and this understated setup delivers a dramatic style pairing. Bathing the space with daylight is a new sky roof, which replaces the original air well.

Making the most of the linear layout of the house, Notion of W opened up the patio and expanded the back of house to accommodate a long dining counter. An extended modular sofa adds to the entertaining amenities and adapts well to the family’s changing needs. Echoing the elongated wall is the television feature wall, which provides a multitude of storage as well.

Every nook and cranny in this house is well-utilised without sacrificing spatial quality. The area under the staircase has been turned into a mini bar with an integrated cellar, making it an ideal drinking hole for the homeowners to unwind or to host their guests.

“With a growing family, the homeowners would like everyone to have their own space. They also wanted larger communal spaces for everyday living and entertaining,” say the designers. Adhering to the brief, the kitchen, dining and living areas were kept open, creating ample spaces for the family. Black linear accents and LED lighting strips further complement the elongated house.

Continuing the elongated spatial language is the master bedroom on the second floor, which is fitted with a tailor-made living setup comprising a workstation and a king-sized bed. The bedroom is also furnished with a lounging sofa, television wall, walk-in wardrobe, bathroom and balcony – resembling a studio apartment ideal for the couple when they need privacy.


Black frames and linear LED strips present a uniformed aesthetic for the study area, while curved design accents soften the look. The monochromatic style ensemble is prominent in the bathroom as well, and the chic colour combo encourages one to luxuriate in its timeless style.
