This apartment renovation project was undertaken for Ms Carolyn, who works as a Regional Sales in a multinational company based in Singapore. She lives with her husband and travels most of the time. She wanted a sleek minimalistic style for her apartment to suit her lifestyle and aesthetic taste.
Designers Ken Goo and Kenneth Lee planned the layout and interior design of this apartment. This wasn’t an ordinary apartment to work at—it was exciting and challenging, as their job was not only to design the apartment but also to oversee the purchasing and delivery of materials and soft furnishing eg., curtains, etc.

The choice of colours, textures, materials, art work, accessories, and storage, etc.,was made after careful market research, the latest interior design trends, and the client’s requirements and preferences. While most of the material for renovation was purchased, some was even custom made by the designers themselves to give a personal touch to this apartment.
The designers wanted to make sure that the apartment opens up to a foyer which features enough visual space. Hence, glossy white finish was opted for to create a sense of expanse. There are no distinct boundaries between the foyer, the dining space, and the living area—however; there are subtle thresholds between each of these spaces. The rendering of each space has been done a thoughtful process on part of the designers. The entrance mirror and the adjacent artwork used for display are features that do not take up space but provide ambience to this area. It gives a glimpse of the kitchen through the semi glass wall. It also leads the eye to the far end of the living room which opens up to balcony. This is how the apartment welcomes its residents every time they enter it.
The combination of black and white colour imbibes energy to this living room. The designers have made sure to add both colours equally. If the ceiling is white, the fan has to be black. White comfy couches has been placed next to the balcony, the crystal clear sliding doors enhance the ambiance of the living area. The brick wall of the living room has been custom made by Faith Interior Design. The idea was to introduce subtle texture in the walls of this room to balance other design elements and also to create visual interest in the room. The full length mirror with sleek black frame and paintings on the brick wall create liveliness in this room.
The TV unit offers smart storage solution for your media equipment.
KITCHEN & DINING
A rectangular dining table with glossy finish paired with contrast black high chairs exudes simplicity and elegance. The curved arms rest of the chairs produce a fluid design balanced by the straight, sleek lines of the space. The built in space for the refrigerator and oven saves a lot of space and provides easy access to the basic amenities. Featuring pendant lights just above the dining table, its design scheme flows into the living room.
This space was to be transformed into a dream bedroom for their client. The transformation to a great looking bedroom was a result of our designers’ passionate creativity.
This is one room where you want to invest special efforts to make it more comfortable, and a place where you are going to relax. Most of us base our perfect home design on things we like to be surrounded with, which is why there is no better place to speak in favour of our personality than our bedroom. The common approach should be to look for the contemporary bed, the huge beds are not necessarily comfortable, even smaller ones can do a good job when space is limited.
The placement of a bed is a very critical point in the designing of a bedroom. The bedroom’s layout won’t be perfect without the appropriate lighting. Here the designers have taken the selection of lighting to another level. The use of three-round crystal chandelier in the bedroom has made the feel of it very classic. Choosing the colour of the curtains or choosing whether the blinds will do justice with the bedroom, or the curtains will give tranquility is a hard to make decision. The placement of the bed near the window with soothing coloured curtains is also well designed. Who doesn’t want to open their eyes and see Nature’s beauty just by lying on a comfortable bed? The purpose of adding little but basic elements on your side tables and headboard to give airy and inviting look to the bedroom. The fewer you add, the cozier it looks. The textured leather headboard in brown colour provides contrast to the walls and curtains as well as space for artwork, photo frames, and side lights.
The owner required a quiet little corner, which could work as her home office. Maintaining the same minimalistic look, a wall mounted work station with ceiling hung shelves was selected. Absolute natural lighting from the French windows floods the space and fills it up with energy. This small space was gradually converted into a comfy study place where creative ideas float with the city view on one side.
The grey curtains with a layer of sheer white curtains gel in with the colours of the grey wall with white shelves and create a mixture of deep, yet spacious look for the room. The wooden flooring required something extra to personalize the space and a connection to the colour scheme of this space. Kenneth and Ken selected a round grey rug and placed it in the middle of the room. The comfortable couch with a rounded low back is the perfect place to recline with a book, or even ‘case studies’.
Here is a picture of the study after renovation. Notice the spectacular ceiling light that is enough to fill the study with the required amount of light for this room.
The bathroom is divided into dry and wet zones with clear glass walls. The huge mirror is mounted up till the ceiling to create visual space. A window opens into the shower zone and its frosted glass allows diffused sunlight to enter the bathroom for natural light.
