The apartment interior was designed for a client with a penchant for pop art, Doraemon, and bright colours.
The original 145sqm floor plan comprised 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a kitchen which ventilated through the yard. Constructed in the mid-80s, the fan-shaped building, coupled with structural walls, gave rise to interiors with room partitions at obtuse angles.
Spaces were streamlined where possible to eliminate interstitial spaces. 2 bedrooms sharing an ensuite bathroom, were transformed into a larger Master Wing with separate sleeping, and walk-in robe cum study areas. Rooms and hidden storage were in turn artfully concealed behind full-height wall panelling, which acted as a backdrop for the client’s Doraemon collection.
The original kitchen, and service area were reconfigured into a larger Kitchen, that now enjoyed direct natural ventilation. Full-length fluted glass sliding partition between the Kitchen and the Piano room allowed usage fluidity when the client entertains.
Against a restrained palette of greys, carefully curated artwork, iconic furniture, and pendant lights pop as visual landmarks, and to extend visual continuity between spaces.
Exemplified by the bright yellow door and retro entry gate, that opened onto a composition of a baby grand, with clouds of lights floating above.
