House Tour: A family-friendly redesign of a 20-year-old detached home

After living at their detached house in Serangoon Gardens after 20 years, this family decided to rebuild it after its many signs of wear and tear started showing. 

Top of their design brief was more storage, followed by a better planning of the spaces so as to draw more light into the home. “The family are certain that they would be living here for many more years, so the new design also had to meet future requirements,” says Matthew Lai, founder of MU Architects.

In one of the bedrooms, a bespoke wardrobe made to look like a Chinese painting was built.
