House Tours: Two apartments with NYC loft-inspired interiors

When they first moved into this 3,700 sqf, five-bedroom condominium apartment near Orchard Road, the expatriate family from Norway initially had misgivings about its size, which was comparatively smaller than their previous landed home. However, in the expert hands of designer William Chan of Spacedge, the wife was able to realize her long harboured dream of living in a New York-style loft with minimalist styling and clean, open spaces.

In the living area, laid-back pieces in white and tan, including Arne Jacobsen’s Egg Chair, provide ample seating. Paintings are not hung, but leant against the home’s white walls.
