House Tour: A calming palette of greys, whites and blacks in this three-room HDB resale unit

A mix of grey, white and black gives this home an understated, timeless look.

High above the pulsating streets of Chinatown, this three-room Housing Board flat is a serene and breezy haven. “I wanted to promote its cross ventilation and make the interiors linear,” says designer Francis Leong. “We pretty much ripped everything up and then focused on the quality of the space. The aim of the material selection is to ensure that the space looks good even after five or 10 years.”
