House Tour: Industrial-style HDB maisonette that's bare, yet beautiful

Too many concrete surfaces could make a home look cold, and uninviting. This three-bedroom HDB maisonette however, is anything but, despite having a minimalist style and lots of concrete and white surfaces. The trick is adding just the right dose of wood texture and greenery, to complement the stark interiors. Design by Free Space Intent.
