Vintage meets mid-century modern in this four-room BTO flat at Alkaff Crescent, home to a young family of three. Designed by Rashi Tulshyan and Melissa Wan of Home Philosophy, the home radiates old-school charm, thanks to an earthy palette and carefully-chosen thrifted pieces.
The family also wanted plenty of storage and a greater focus on the communal areas since they spend most of their time there. To address this, Rashi suggested incorporating custom carpentry for the areas that needed it. “We needed to think of smart ways to create extra storage space while having them hidden to prevent the entire home from looking too “boxed-up” and bulky,” he says.
