Spatial Nordic Demarcation @ Bishan St 23

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 when needed.

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.
