House Tour: Luxurious, contemporary four-storey townhouse in Bukit Timah

Collective Designs has made this an example of the contemporary Singapore home. Cool marble flooring, light-coloured walls and minimalist openings blend with local design elements that include Peranakan-inspired features, as well as the use of bronze and wood. Its interior style makes art, furniture and sculptures essential considerations.

The brief for this Bukit Timah cluster townhouse – home to a couple with two young children and two helpers – called for more storage solutions, particularly in the kitchen, to meet the family’s needs. They required the storage space to “extend into the dining area unobtrusively”.
