This project garnered the Bronze award for Best Residential Design (Apartment), at the IDCS 2020 Design Excellence Awards.
Jumbo HDB flats, which are often close to twice the size of a regular 4-room flat, are naturally spacious. When this family approached Lite Design Collaborative (LDC) to design their home in Woodlands, though, they wanted to make it appear even more spacious with an open concept, which would give their child room to explore and grow.
LDC addressed this by bringing in lots of light to the space. A calming, bright palette of neutrals and light wood was used to reflect light, as well as partitions like a glass bi-fold door and screen, which help to segregate spaces without being too visually heavy.
The space also needed some reconfiguring to meet the family’s requirements of a wet and dry kitchen, a walk-in wardrobe with a double sink, and helper’s room.
