When the homeowners – a family of four – approached Mark Chen of Artistroom to redesign a four-room flat in Toa Payoh, it was clear that a creative approach and substantial overhaul was needed.
The apartment itself had a smaller area compared to a usual four-room flat, and also only had one bathroom. Utilising every possible space was essential.
In their brief, the homeowners prioritised having ample storage, easy maintenance, and adequate kitchen space as they cook often. To address the brief, Mark reconfigured the layout to include as much concealed storage space as possible. Materials like terrazzo flooring and a subtle, muted palette were introduced to ensure that the home would stand the test of time.
