Design areas: Living Room, Dining Area, Kitchen, Master Suite with walk-in wardrobe and en-suite, Children’s Bedroom, Guest Bedroom | Project completed: 2011 | Renovation budget: SGD60,000
The interior architecture completely transformed this unit with carving out a new bedroom configuration and large living and dining space. The design direction followed a traditional American approach with panelled walls for texture and interest. As this was an older place, the wall panelling helped to conceal electric wires in order to create an upmarket feel.
The kitchen offers hidden storage in the recesses under the beam and the dual tone kitchen is still on trend after many years. The girls bedroom has ample space to play and to store toys. The subtle use of pink on the carpentry allows the room to grow with the girl. A three dimensional butterfly display adds some interest and fun.
The large walk in wardrobe is combined with a study and together with the bedroom creates a large master suite with en-suite facilities. The position of the common bathroom door was changed, so the yard can be fully used for utilities and the flow of the apartment is similar to a condo.
