With a 1302 sqft footprint, the agenda was to pay homage to the view of Bishan
Park right out of the windows whilst providing a light, fresh yet lively home for the
young family of four in an ever-popular Nordic flair.
With that in mind, an entryway was crafted with a floor-to-ceiling built in carpentry
to visually lengthen the space, forming a much more welcoming composition. The team at Insight.Out Studio
completely re-envisioned the living room by collapsing of walls between the
original bedroom/study and living to create a new functional space to introduce
fluidity and open up the previously secluded living area.
A teal accented backdrop
wall was painted at the end of the hallway and the living room to not only inject
personality, but aid in extending the soothing ambiance for a semblance of
uniformity by echoing back the greenery of Bishan Park.
An open concept living makeover led to carving out a multi-functional guest
bedroom cum reading nook. A custom storage platform that houses an additional
pull-out bed with wardrobe on both ends of the platform was devised to maximize
storage space in order to accommodate for linens and out-of-season clothing.
Sliding glass door was deliberately introduced to segregate the space when needed
without restricting the park’s view which provided abundant natural light to the
dining area, hence amplifies the sagacity of space and openness, bringing in more
daylight into depths of the space. Roller blinds was also placed for privacy if and
Being a heavy cooking family who loves both an open concept and needing an
enclose kitchen for functionality, flexibility was made possible with the use of bifold
glass doors. To have laundry staying fresh, a service yard was formed with the
use of glass doors as well to intentionally allowing light to flow to keep the kitchen
bright. A play area is strategically planned out right in front of the kitchen, allowing
the parents to watch their young child through the glass doors while prepping for
meals, in turn, created a child-friendly environment.
The common bathroom was likewise reconceptualized to achieve a separation of a
wet and dry area facilitated by an extension. With a substantially larger bathroom,
we were able to migrate the wash basin that once stood within the kitchen back in
with a vanity cabinet to form a tucked away storage solution for toiletries.
