Space solution that make space along the windows useful: Customized carpentry using glass that provides storage and natural light at the same time; shelvings and drawers that spice up a typical window.

Exposed black round conduits were chosen for the walls and ceilings. The kitchen is kept simple with minimal shelving and use of the clean Kompactplus table top.
Having the luxury of large bathrooms allows this expat couple to inject grandeur in their landed home renovation, using marble-like tiles and complete with couple sinks and bathtubs.

A wall between 2 bedrooms was demolished for a larger Master Bedroom, where the young couple can work while supervising their child at the same time.
The highlight of this EC is the aquarium-cabinet which can be viewed from the living space. Complemented by soft lighting, the water feature evokes sense of tranquility and surrealism. In the bedrooms, a bay window space is fused to form a raised platform, cleverly maximizing the space for ample storage space for bulky items. The top of the platform steps includes an element of surprise – a lid supported by hydraulic action offers a storage compartment. Custom-built raised platform and bed frame are illuminated with recessed light to conjure a soft and floating effect.
The living area has a slight country feel as a result of the TV console integrated with CraftStone feature wall. The back of the wall was structurally reinforced and fixed with a layer of wall panel to hide the suspended TV’s electrical wirings and cabling. In the study room, the work table is integrated with a sturdy full-height storage to stash away the doctor couple’s thick medical books. It also features a piece of glass whiteboard handy for important notes and messages.
