This project garnered the Silver award for Best Residential Design (Apartment), at the IDCS 2020 Design Excellence Awards.
When this homeowner couple approached Arche Interior to design and renovate their three-bedroom HDB apartment at Depot Road, they were very clear about what they wanted: to create space and maximise storage, without the rustic wooden elements that characterise so many apartments these days.
To address their design brief, Arche Interior had to plan for a complete transformation, including hacking all removable walls. Although there were challenges with the structural columns that could not be removed, Arche Interior worked around them by completely reconfiguring the home and disguising them in various ways.
The homeowners’ practical sensibilities also came into play, so there are plenty of hidden gems like a concealed bathroom and a countertop that runs all the way from the kitchen to the dining room.
