A lawyer who works for a technology company lives in this ground floor condominium unit. Wanting it to be a retreat to unwind after long business trips and long working days, she sent her brief to Lim Shing Hui, the principal architect at L Architects and a long-time church friend whose work she follows.
Besides these requests, Shing Hui also realised the full potential of this 12-week renovation project. “As soon as I stepped into the apartment, I noticed that the living room and bedroom opened onto a beautiful patio with trees, plants, and water features. I wondered if I could make the living room and bedroom feel as if they belong in a house where doors or windows open up onto a garden,” she adds.
