Located in the prime District 10 in Singapore, is an unexpected gem hidden within the hustle and bustle of a city. The abode has an area of approximately 3,477 square feet, surrounded by a beautiful landscape that was planted probably decades ago. This 41 years old unit built in the year 1977 has diagonal walls and structures situated along the centre and perimeter of the unit that makes the space inefficient for spatial planning. Due to size, the central space is relatively dimmed as well.
The intention is to keep the space airy and simple. Upon entering the unit, one will be greeted by a step-down living space with an unobstructed view towards the surrounding landscape. Walls are deliberately kept clean and simple with a fixed glass panel to frame-up the external landscape to become a timeless natural artwork for the interior space.
Existing diagonal walls are finished with matte lacquered natural oak veneers and off-white high-quality matte laminate panels that meanders throughout the unit to enhance fluidity and smoothen diagonal corners. Timber doors seamlessly hidden amongst the meandering wall panels for a continuous flow of material. A diagonal column that was inefficiently positioned in the centre of the space has been celebrated with natural oak veneers rounded at corners to give a signature to space. Simple luxury.
