36-year-old Jessica Koh found that her new home overlooked and offered a priceless view of the lush vegetation surrounding Punggol Waterway Park. "Because the house is close to nature, I chose a look that was simple yet warm," she says. Walls and cabinets were kept unpretentious so that they would not compete with the view.
Ms Koh's mother, Madam Sally Tan, a 62-year-old sales executive, cooks regularly, so the kitchen was enclosed with glass panels. These allow the flat to retain its sense of space and light.
