Espresso and martini — two beverages that can’t be any more different but that blend so seamlessly together to form a sumptuous, multifaceted drink that is as potent as it is delicious. Just as an espresso martini aims to revitalise and relax after a hard day’s work, this snazzy 3-room condominium unit nestled in the quietness of Upper Bukit Timah, is also designed so the homeowners can recharge and wind down from the hustle and bustle of life.
Drawing inspiration from various interior styles, the apartment primarily features light wood with accents of teal for serenity and a pitched roof ceiling that is impossible to miss — an element that is evident in the kitchen, living room, and master bedroom. .
The pitched roof draws the eye to the centre of the room with its clean, straight lines while parts of the walls and ceiling are injected with a splash of colour that brings the entire room together, as well as to function as visual space segregators.
To maximise space and make full use of the enviable high ceilings within this compact flat, a mezzanine floor was introduced in the study where the first floor served as a guest room as the second floor operated as a study space, fully equipped with a desk and office chairs with track lighting illuminating them. Echoing idea of space maximisation, the often underutilised area under the staircase was converted into a storage area, further reiterating the idea of a multi-layered espresso martini that this project was named after.
