The designers proposed a main material palette of wood and concrete-inspired finishes for this DBSS unit, which is home to a young married couple and their child. In the living area, this soothing yet edgy style pairing makes up the feature wall and television console. The feature wall itself is clad in textured paint and draws out a cool concrete- inspired backdrop to temper the warmth of the woody accents. The custom-built shoe cabinet at the front entrance sports the same wood-look finish.

Fulfilling the homeowners’ desire to have an open- concept kitchen, the designers created one that is spacious and neat- looking with ample storage. A pantry space has been carved out, with curved edges and fluted details on the cabinet doors creating an inviting spot for making a hot beverage.

In the master bathroom, the shower stall features vertical storage space in the form of wall niches. Extending upwards, the design is integrated with the bay window and the seamless setting lends an air of openness for a much larger-looking shower space. Fluted glass panels offer privacy while allowing light to filter through.

The vanity in the master bathroom is decked in the same material palette of wood and stone accents. The cabinets have a moody slate-like finish and are complemented by the soothing accent of wood-look tiles. This understated style combo makes for a reinvigorating and spa-like bathroom.

Bay windows can take up quite a bit of space, but the designers have flexed their design muscles in the master bedroom by making it part of a storage cabinet and headboard. They also worked in functional features such as a work desk and vanity table. The latter is linked to the full-height wardrobe.
