House Tour: Subtly elegant three-storey home of an art gallery owner

Returning to Singapore after living overseas for some years, the owners of this 7,000sqf three-bedroom detached house in Cypress Avenue turned to architect Derek Chan of K2 Design for help in building their home. Derek had already designed the wife’s brother’s home, so she was comfortable with his working style. 

The wife, co-founder of Chan Hampe Galleries, matched the colours and the mood of her collection of artworks to the furniture in each room. For instance, in the dining room, a monochromatic portrait of a man gazes pensively towards the monochrome Oriental-motif wallpaper.
