Two years before renovations began for this home of registered architect Kelvin Wang and his banker wife, Jocelyn Neo, the design wheels were already in motion. The brief evolved during this time, but they were very clear about some things from the onset.

“The design centres on the use of grey concrete, brown wood textures and the colour black – a neutral palette that’s never out of fashion. We plan to live here for at least the next 10 years, so the design needs to reflect our aspirations, suit our lifestyles and stand the test of time,” says Kelvin.
