1/8

Fond memories of their vacation in Sweden inspired this family of three to request the design team at Artistroom to adopt a Scandinavian style for their four-room HDB home in Toa Payoh.

Other practical requirements in the brief included having a large living area, a proper workspace for when the homeowner brings work home, and adequate storage. The $140,000 renovation (excluding furnishings) is fairly extensive. It involved hacking and erecting walls to reconfigure the flat’s layout; putting in a new ceiling, and flooring and wall tiles; built-in cabinets, as well as electrical and plumbing works. The spacious living area is a perfect fit with the homeowners' brief. 

The spacious living area is a perfect fit with the homeowners' brief. This is achieved by 2 introducing linear elements, such as a built-in television console and a long sofa from Wendelbo, which are arranged parallel to the space.
