New Beginnings

Following an overhaul by The Orange Cube, this old HDB point block unit reveals a calming blend of Scandinavian and Asian design elements

HDB point blocks are coveted homes among apartment hunters in Singapore. The ample floor area, open layout and upgrading efforts are some of the benefits of staying in these homes. Wanting to make the most of their newly purchased five-room apartment in an Ang Mo Kio point block, the couple engaged The Orange Cube to helm the makeover.

The result of the overhaul is a home imbued with its own character. Walls clad in wood are the most striking feature in this home, offering warmth that balances out the light palette of the rest of the interior. One of these walls even follows the natural curve of the interior wall. To play up the openness of the unit, you only get a larger spatial experience upon stepping into the living area proper. To create a bigger living area, the balcony, formerly located where the full-height windows are, has been merged with the living area.
