Design for the interiors of this HDB 5-room apartment is driven by aspirations to create a mini house out of a humble flat unit. Spatial layering forms a dominant language in the design - space seems to multiply and become enriched when it embraces a spectrum of malleability. With a purist approach toward architectural space making, confines of an apartment give way to a liberating way of living.
This HDB 4-room apartment has a delicate poise from crafted transitions between spaces and expressive materiality. Awash with a pastel calmness, artisanal accents further impart a gentle touch to the living spaces. The homeowners’ request for maximised openness, and having the option to enclose a study / guest room and master bedroom separately led the studio to explore design solutions for flexible configuration of spaces.
Created as a seamless living space that is generously proportioned for a spectrum of daily activities, this HDB 4-room apartment is in a way an everyday staycation home – a calming backdrop for one to slow down and enjoy the tempo of life. The materiality of natural white oak cladding, rattan panels and solid brass accents exudes a satisfying consonance of tactility.
