The Gallery Apartment by UPSTAIRS_

The idea behind the home is to look almost like an art gallery, with open display shelves and a constantly changing roster of decor and design

Home Type: 4-room HDB

Floor Area: 1,054 sqft


This HDB apartment at The Pinnacle@Duxton has a prestigious location and the interior design team from UPSTAIRS_ wanted the home to live up to expectations. Despite its compact 1,000-sqft floor size, the interior designers were confident that they could design a home that is open, airy and highly configurable.

The idea behind the home is to look almost like an art gallery, with open display shelves and a constantly changing roster of decor and design. Firstly, almost all the walls were knocked down, floors were hacked away and the designers completely reworked the flow and layout of the apartment. The designers also customised a wall-to-wall, full-height shelf that stretches across the length of the home.

The result is a spacious home with foldable walls that can be used to cordon off spaces according to its function. Have a guest staying over? Close off a section of the living room and it becomes a private guest room. Need a larger space for a dinner party? Completely open up the home to maximise the floor space and invite as many friends as you want.

This versatility in layout is also evident in the wall shelf feature. The open cubby holes make for a flexible decor solution: if the homeowners want to change up the look of the home, they can just replace the items on the shelf.
