Banking relationship manager Joshua Chin prefers an industrial style while his wife, civil servant Kathleen Wong, is partial to mid-century designs. When they purchased this resale flat in 2019, they wanted the interior to reflect both styles.
Of the three interior design firms they shortlisted, Untitled, a sub-brand under EightyTwo, impressed them with a proposal that was en pointe and comprehensive. “Their initial design was already more or less what we wanted. Untitled was also very thorough and the SketchUp 3D modelling made it easy for us to visualise the spaces,” Joshua comments.
Led by interior designer Ruth Tan, the Untitled team took approximately three months to overhaul the whole apartment at the cost of about $90,000, excluding furnishings.
Even though it was only about six years old, the existing interior was “gaudy, outdated and mismatched,” Ruth points out. “The layout was also compartmentalised, making the spaces appear disconnected, and there was no storage space,” she adds.
