This three-room HDB flat looks nothing like its original state, thanks to the designers from The Interior Place
27 June 2014
Design firm The Interior Place gave this home a cool, lounge-like feel and at the same time, factored in the homeowner’s request for practical storage. One of the major requirements from the owners was to have ample storage space to keep clutter to a minimum and to that end, the designers incorporated hidden storage space to fully utilise every corner in the apartment.
Balancing functionality and style was important, as exemplified in the living room. The homeowners wanted to deviate from the usual squarish layout of a home, hence the hexagonal shaped living area in this home. The designers also made do without a sofa. Instead, they created a little dugout backed by a full-length cushion headboard where the owners can relax. The beauty of the living room design is how the designers managed to incorporate an impressive amount of storage space. The floor was elevated with storage units hidden under the floor boards.
The dining and kitchen areas are combined and yet, are distinct from each other. The kitchen takes up a corner of the space, and is separated from the living space by glass panels. The dining table is hidden in the base of the kitchen counter, so whenever meals are served, it can be pulled our and slid back in when not in use.
