The vintage architecture and pitched roof of this compact corner terrace house built in the 1950s sealed the deal. Drawn by the charm of its architecture, designer Kelvin Teo retained its structure. “I’d been on the lookout for property in District 13 for a while,” says Kelvin, the founder of Space Sense Studio. “The house was also in its original state, which was one of my criteria.” This gave him the freedom to transform the house – with a built-up floor area of 1,900 sq ft – to his taste.
