Yes, it’s finally here! We’re proud to announce the six HDB projects that are in the running to be named “Outstanding HDB Flat” in the upcoming Lookbox Design Awards, which takes place in December.

See which projects our international judging panel has picked as some of Singapore’s most inspiring HDB homes.


1) Project name: Squaring a triangle
Project type: 2-room HDB flat
Firm: asolidplan

About the project: The design responds to the constraints of a 45-degree wall, making it ‘disappear’ to form a large and warm space.



2) Project name: Wee Residence
Project type: 5-room HDB Flat
Firm: Wee Studio

About the project: The home is an experimentation with materials and design details, and is designed as a cosy space for entertaining. Standout features include an island counter that doubles up as dining table and TV console.



3) Project name: Mcnair 264
Project type: 4-room HDB flat
Firm: Joey Khu Interior Design

About the project: The homeowners desired a home that would exude a sense of both calm and luxury, and also wanted space to entertain. The designer has created the living and dining area, and kitchen as one open area. He has also selected warm grey and rich walnut as the main colours of choice.



4) Project name: Moving Walls
Project type: 4-room HDB BTO flat
Firm: asolidplan

About the project: As flats become increasingly small, how can we augment a space within its limited physical confines? asolidplan found the answer through the devise of moving habitable walls.



5) Project name: JS Apartment
Project type: 5-room HDB flat
Firm: Wynk Collaborative

About the project: The designers wanted to create a space that was open and fluid where rooms flowed into each other, and where moments of surprise and sense of joy are created through pops of colour.



6) Project name: Lodging Home
Project type: 3-room HDB Flat

About the project: This project called for the creation of three bedrooms in a HDB flat with just two bedrooms. The existing common toilet also had to be enlarged and divided into a separated toilet and shower cubicle to address the typical morning rush as everyone prepares for work.

Watch this space for updates on all our shortlists in the next few weeks.
