Presented with an unusual layout – this modestly sized apartment in River Valley had several small rooms and impractical bay windows – interior designers James Koh and Ben Loke from 19sixtyseven decided to simplify the way space is organised in this home.

First, the designers knocked down several walls, and reconfigured the space into two sections: the living and dining area on one side, and bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen on the other.  

The tan marble floor, geometric-style Copper Real Good chairs from Blu Dot (bought online), and wooden accents give this industrial-themed home a warm touch. Tableware from Bloesem. 

Caesarstone quartz was chosen for the kitchen countertops, for its durability and colour. 

The homeowners are comic book fans; their prized comic collection is displayed on the Cornerblock shelf by Grafunkt. 

The bathroom is built with a rain shower and the vanity mirror, which has ambient lighting installed. 

Home renovation cost $110,000 (including furnishings).
