Originated as a challenge to redefine the boundaries of public housing spaces in Singapore, the interior architecture of this bachelor’s pad is configured for a variety of spatial possibilities. Beyond the entrance, guests are immediately welcomed by the key highlight of the apartment—A significantly elongated kitchen that extends across the living hall. Dark stained oak is complemented with white marble flooring to achieve a sense of spatial balance. The extension created a new relationship and stimulated how the space plan is configured, resulting in an exchange between the dining and living areas.
Walls are intentionally left untreated to showcase the client’s curation of artworks. The material characteristics of the space extends consistently across the display shelving, private library, entertainment quarters, and consoles. Scents inspired from The Times Square EDITION immerse the space, paired with a mix of Danish furnishings to a fulfilling experience design of visuals, scents, textures, and sound.
