This three-storey house sits on a suburban area of town. Its original layout was traditional and enclosed and not suitable for large family with children. The designer reconfigured the layout of the house to maximise the space, like relocating the garage’s door, converting the original sidewalks into a parking area, tripling its size. For the interiors, despite the fact that the owner prefers lighter tone interiors, the designer suggested a bold choice of colour for them. Recognizing the potential of this house, the designer applied the grey marble flooring and dark grey terrazzo printed wallpaper, transforming this house into a contemporary home with its own character.
Walking into the foyer, the house was divided into 2 sides. On the right of the entrance, there is the dining area and open kitchen, separated by a glass sliding door. The kitchen was completed with professional kitchen appliances, custom made for the owner who loves cooking and having family and friends gatherings. The moss clayed wall in the dining area brings the natural scent into the room, make it inviting and lively.
The left side of the foyer lies the living room, 13 feet high ceiling with the full height glass sliding door to the garden makes the living room bright and spacious. Matched with the slated wooden ceiling softens the dark palette with the natural ambience. One of the feature of the house is the large window in the living room that sits like a frame exhibiting the owner’s beloved cars, allowing a car enthusiast to admire his collection inside the house. Moreover, in order to preserve the tree next to the house, as requested by the owner, the designer aptly designed the curved glass wall, reserving adequate space for the tree, and adding vitality into the room.
The second floor is the children’s wonderland, one bedroom uses mustard wallpaper along with pale wooden flooring, creating a dynamic vibe. There is the reading area for the children in the centre of the room and also the hidden folded door can be used to split the room into two. Another pink room for the girl, the designer uses artificial plant to decorate the worn out balcony wall, making it a beautiful feature of the room.
The master bedroom comes with an en suite bathroom, a spacious walk-in closet and a private balcony. In the walk in closet, the open metal wardrobe in brass is understated yet sophisticated. The copper finished sanitary in the master bathroom matched with the marble tiles, adds elegant accents into the room. As for the bedroom, the headboard featured curved walnut panel, along with the white hanging closet, and the brass details beside the headboard subtly connects the whole en suite with delicate touches.
