The original partition wall was partially hacked away to open up the space and create a free-flowing layout between the kitchen and communal zones. As the female homeowner cooks often, Jake followed a U-shaped layout for the utilitarian zone, which allowed for more base cabinets to be fitted into the space.
To keep up with its regular usage, the kitchen was fitted with quartz countertops, a tiled backsplash and TAK-laminated cabinets to further enhance the durability of the utilitarian zone. The absence of protruding handles on the cabinets greatly reduces the number of sharp corners in the space, serving as a safety feature for the three young occupants in the home.
Simply furnished with a minimalist wood- accented dining table, a pair of black upholstered chairs and an industrial-chic dining bench, the dining area possesses an open and airy vibe.The use of the bench also caters for additional seating arrangements at any one time. Rounded pendant lamps complete the look of the space with their unique frames.
To cater to this family’s needs, interior designers Jake Yeoh of ZLC and Huilian from Interior Kit transformed this three-bedroom apartment into a fully functional space. They fitted the home with plenty of bespoke fittings, including a built-in cabinet placed along the entryway. Besides serving as a shoe cabinet, it also doubles up as a privacy screen.
With dark limestone-effect tiles covering most of the surfaces here, the master bathroom is injected with a cosy yet luxurious ambience. Along the vanity wall, the tiles were also finished in a chevron pattern that enhances the visual appeal of the space. Meanwhile, an expanded mirror cabinet helps keep bathroom accessories tidy.
