House Tour: Sleek and streamlined four-bedroom penthouse condominium in Upper Bukit Timah

This four-bedroom penthouse in Upper Bukit Timah is home to a couple in their late 40s and their teenage son. In the couple’s brief to Metaphor Studio, their request was to open up the spaces within the 2,875sqf unit where the family could interact and spend time together. The homeowners felt that the existing layout was too rigid and compartmentalised. They also found the route from the entrance to the kitchen somewhat impractical.

Within an open plan, the use of materials, colours, lines and even ceiling design can help to define a space.
