House tour: A minimalist home that looks like a sci-fi movie set

Instead of the usual cabinets that are built into the walls, designer William Chan of Spacedge Designs went with a bolder approach for this 3-bedroom condominium unit. After a $140,000 renovation, this home has transformed into a geometric minimalist space that is not only visually stunning but incorporates many space saving solutions.

The trapezodial structure that anchors the open concept home not only holds a pull-out dining table, but also conceals the entrace to the kitchen and two bathrooms, with the help of doors that flush with the structure. This ingenious design concept in turn frees up more walking space around the apartment.

Above the hideaway dining table are spacious shelves that the homeowners fully utilise to reduce the amount of clutter in plain sight. The pop of blue within this Figured Anigre wood-clad centrepiece also adds an element of surprise to this blocky structure.

The suave living room is set apart from the rest of the light-coloured home with an all-black colour scheme. To keep in line with the minimalist decor, the sofa is upholsterd in black polyester fabric, and the floors clad in black vinyl sheets to blend seamlessly with the black walls. The result is a cosy pod-like space for the couple to kick back and relax.

Another hide-and-seek component in this transformative apartment is found in this narrow walkway that leads to the balcony. When the blue panels are shut and flushed with the wall, the study room hidden behind it completely disappears.

Towards the back of the house is the master bedroom, and a cosy black and blue colour scheme was chosen to match the rest of the interiors. The strategic use of colours also stems from feng shui principles. As wood is the main element of this place, symbols of water, such as blue, grey, and black colours, needed to be incorporated to balance the space.
