This rare Woodlands Jumbo HDB flat with five bedrooms is home to a couple in their 40s, their teenage son and the wife’s mum. The large space and unusual layout meant sufficient privacy for each family member.

The husband, Mike’s, brief to interior designer Edrick Wong of Prozfile was for a look that was “raw and industrial”, yet there had to be “poise and elegance in the rawness”.

Cantilevered cabinets in foyer

The length of the entrance foyer is maximised with roomy cantilevered cabinets that store everything from shoes to DVDs. The lines of the sliding doors here are Modernist-inspired.

A reading room

The original cream marble flooring complements the muted palette and wood furnishings. A new whitewashed brick wall, quirky designer seats and a painting by Mike set the tone for the stylish reading room.

Industrial style kitchen

The kitchen maintains the industrial theme with black PVC tracks that also hide electrical wires.

Editing suite

Mike’s bunker-style editing suite includes an industrial hanging lamp from Like That One, and his favourite Eames lounge chair.
