Over twenty years of marriage and three homes later, entrepreneurs Richard Koh and Ong Bee Yan can finally say they’re living in their dream home. No, not some multi-storey bungalow or penthouse at a prestigious address, but a perfectly modest intermediate terrace house off Braddell Road.
It’s their dream home because they designed it themselves, without relying on an architect or interior designer to undertake the A&A job.
“There’s two of us, with the helper and our pets, so we designed it to our exact needs,” says Richard, who runs a local handcrafted beverage company with Bee Yan. “We didn’t want a home that would be difficult to upkeep.”
