House Tour: Five-room HDB home in Punggol inspired by industrial-style cafes

With an upsurge of industrial-inspired cafes around town, it is no surprise that frequent cafe-hoppers Jason Pang and Cherlene Tan wanted an industrial theme for their first home - a five-room HDB flat in Punggol.

It was their only request to designer Kelvin Teo of Space Sense, who interpreted the style in a warmer treatment.

The cerulean armchair lends a pop of colour to the wood-toned living room, while the graphic cushions give the classic chesterfield sofa a modern touch.

The wall between the kitchen and the dining area was torn down to create a roomier, open-plan space which could then fit a narrow kitchen island. 

Kelvin created a design out of the exposed electrical piping in the kitchen.

To create a restful sanctuary, Kelvin toned down the decorative elements in the bedroom and utilised a quiet, monochrome palette instead.

We bring you on a tour of the home:

The nine-month long renovation costs approximately $82,000 (excluding fixtures and furniture).
