This rare Jumbo HDB flat in Woodlands is home to a couple in their 40s, their teenage son and the wife's mum.

The large space and unusual layout meant sufficient privacy for each family member.

Mike's (the husband) brief to interior designer Edrick Wong of Prozfile was for a look that was "raw and industrial", yet there had to be "poise and elegance in the rawness".

The length of the entrance foyer is maximised with roomy cantilevered cabinets that store everything from shoes to DVDs.

The lines of the sliding doors here are Modernist-inspired.

The original cream marble flooring complements the muted palette and wood furnishings. A new whitewashed brick wall, quirky designer seats and a painting by Mike set the tone for the stylish reading room.


The kitchen maintains the industrial theme with black PVC tracks that also hide electrical wires.

Mike’s bunker-style editing suite includes an industrial hanging lamp from Like That One, and his favourite Eames lounge chair. 

Even the bathroom complements the raw, industrial theme with rust-look tiles and a specially sourced copper sink.

Renovations cost about $100,000 in all, including all the custom-designed furnishings.
