This HDB jumbo flat is one of the rare spaces we got to work with. The combination of two flats – one being a corner flat, the homeowners have the luxury to utilise the common corridor space of these two flats and incorporate it as part of the spatial design.
Wooden planks are tiled vertically from entrance of the house and then extended all the way into the kitchen, seamlessly connecting the outdoors to the inside of the house. The vertical placement of the planks also visually elongates the area, and creates a nice garden entrance for the house. In contrast to the entrance, huge white marble tiles were used as flooring for the main living space, and as well as the dining space.
Natural materials and textures such as bricks, cement, wood, and marble were heavily used in the design of this space, overall creating a rather light colour scheme. To balance this out, darker coloured furniture were used to deck the space up, generating contrast and adding weight to the overall design.
To embrace the space this residential area has, walls between two bedrooms and one storeroom were knocked down, creating a home office space within the bedroom itself. Differentiating work from sleep, darker colours such as blue were used in the sleeping area, and brighter colours such as white and light wood were used to adorn the workspace.
Potted plants were also placed in corners of the house, giving the space a pop of colour and a breath of fresh air - just like taking a walk in the park, but right at the comfort of your own home.
