Using the classic combination of black and white doesn’t always have to result in a traditional look. In this apartment in Clementi, the designers at Architology used both dark inky shades and white to create cosmopolitan appeal. Yet the home still retains its cosiness thanks to a mellow lighting scheme and touches of wood and colour.

A contemporary chandelier contrasts nicely with the exposed brick wall and industrial style of the dining room furniture. Carafe and glasses from Air; table lamp and neon vases from Boconcept; bench from Xtra Park Mall.


Exposed brick, cement screed and concrete hollow block wall finishes add texture and demarcate spaces in the living room.


The designer decked out the original kitchen in grey to match the rest of the house.


Pushing out the master bedroom‘s footprint (by extending the living room wall) allowed the owners a dedicated display space for his Gundam collection. Stool from Xtra Park Mall.


The black-painted feature wall keeps the sunny master bedroom dark and cosy. Lamp from Xtra Park Mall.


Sliding doors separate the study and walk-in wardrobe space from the bedroom, while a pillar doubles as a TV console.


The designer applied the same exposed-brick treatment to the powder room to play against the smooth white finish of the ceramics.
