House Tour: A Brooklyn townhouse-inspired bungalow in Bukit Timah

Unable to forget their beloved townhouse in New York where they lived for seven years, Gunjan and Showbhik Kalra decided to recreate that feel when they designed their home in Bukit Timah. 

Of course, their architect Matthew Lai of MU Architects couldn't possibly create a brownstone out of their two-storey bungalow with attic, but he could certainly incorporate their distinctive elements into the design.

Their attic, which has been converted into an entertainment area, features black exposed structural beams and red brick surfaces to accentuate the Brooklyn townhouse experience. The family hangs out here at least once a week to watch movies or enjoy desserts and after-dinner drinks with guests.
