Plenty of greenery, natural light and stylish wood-steel furnishings in this warm and contemporary 4 room HDB resale flat.
This four-room resale HDB flat in Jurong West, which belongs to and was designed by architect Kenn Goh, is simple yet full of personality. Visitors will get a peek of the space through this customised black steel gate. Measuring 969sqf, the flat has a combined living room and dining area. "My partner, Kelvin Chan, and I love to host gatherings, and the modular use of this space allows us to do that." See also: SAVE PRECIOUS SPACE WITH THESE 7 BRILLIANT HOME DESIGN IDEAS! Kenn chose to go curtain-less, as this allows natural light and breeze to fill the room. Plants play a large role in the design; the greenery complements the neutral and pastel furnishings in the home. This solid oak table can sit up to 10 people for dinner parties, and double as a large work station for the homeowners. "The use of black steel and oak furnishing here visually separates the dining from living room," explains Kenn. An oak shelf covers the entire length of the wall, and acts as a repository of the homeowners' favourite things, from books to travel finds. See also: 8 STYLISH WAYS TO MAKE YOUR NEW HOME STAND OUT! Check out that impressive plant collection! Kelvin is an avid home cook, so Kenn designed extensive storage for kitchen utensils and their collection of handcrafted ceramic plates from Japan. The large drawers allow easy access for utensils, while the monochrome geometric tiles signals a change in usage of space -- keeping to the wood and grey hues throughout the home. The room is adorned with mementoes, such as an inspired print of Fernando Botero's Mona Lisa from their Vietnam trip and their collection of Sonny Angel figurines from Japan.
