Steeped in history, but also located in one of the trendiest neighbourhoods in town, this conservation unit in Tiong Bahru was home to a couple who wanted to bring the essence of its surroundings, indoors.
The openplan apartment is divided into two contrasting sections; the common area showcases a retro style,while the private zones are done up in a contemporary fashion. Just like the district it’s in, this home is now a charming juxtaposition of the past and present.
This apartment has a generous amount of natural light flowing through from both ends of this elongated apartment.
The original mosaic tiles was retained and the floor areas where the walls
once stood were left un-tiled deliberately. It is always a nice conversation to point out to guests on where the apartment’s original footprint were previously.
The kitchen is not only functional and spacious, it is also integrated into the dining and living zones to better entertain guests. Its sleek architectural design contrasts smartly with the common area’s retro finish. The more restful zones of the home present a 180 degree change in aesthetics.
This refurbished home might tally with current popular decor styles, but it still exude its history and the spirit of the neighbourhood.
