In line with the homeowners’ request for a clean design approach, the designers from Project Creative wanted this home to remain unencumbered by heavy design features, loud colours or unnecessary furniture.
A simple television feature is the focal point in the living room. Clad in a light wood laminate with thin strips of brass inlay, it becomes the backdrop for tranquil family nights.
The entrance to the household shelter – an eyesore in many HDB flats – has been completely concealed to encourage a more seamless layout. But instead of a plain laminate wall, the designers clad it with alternating slabs of different laminates, creating a simple chequered pattern.
In the master bedroom, space has been proportioned to accommodate a large separate dressing area. An additional wall of closet space in the centre of the room effectively divides the space, and also houses the television set that faces the sleeping area.
On the other side, lots of clothes storage space is offered . One side of the dressing area features full-height mirrored sliding doors, removing the need to have a dressing mirror in this tight enclave. Despite its constraints, this space still manages to squeeze in a built-in study desk at the far end of the walkway.
