Engaging the help of Poh, an architecturally trained designer who runs Plattform, homeowners Benny and Jocelyn wanted their first residence – a three-bedroom unit on the top floor of a condominium block built in the 1980s – to meet their lifestyle needs. A project director by day and 24/7 culinary enthusiast, Benny spends most of his time at home experimenting in the kitchen, which features a generously sized island countertop, while Jocelyn, a private banker who, besides tasting Benny’s new recipes, spends her free time at home reading or playing the piano.

The double-volume ceiling enabled the arrangement of pendant lamps from Light + Form Concepts to star as the centrepiece above the Miniforms Gustave dining table from Xtra. Flowers from Poppy Flora Studio. Tableware from Galanga Living.

The living space is generously illuminated by natural light. If it gets too warm, the couple can lower the motorised blinds installed by 51 Curtains.

Maxmising the small kitchen footprint, the island countertop also enhances functionality, and keeps everything within easy reach.

The master bedroom features a window seat, where the homeowners can enjoy views of the vicinity.

The walk-in wardrobe customised by Mudian was designed to store everything from belts and shoes, to clothes and bags.
