Couple pairs geometry with nature-inspired look in stylish Bukit Timah condo

This retreat draws on geometry to take its nature-inspired look to a whole new level.

Who: A couple in their 50s

Home: Four-bedroom condominium apartment in Bukit Timah

Size: 2,600sqf

Retreating to fast-paced Singapore to get away from it all sounds like a paradox, but it makes sense when you're coming home to this chic urban oasis, a spacious apartment in the leafy environs of Bukit Timah.

A lush, green view of treetops greets you at the balcony of the 12th-floor home, while the soothing interiors carry inspiration from nature - from a canary yellow screen printed with scenes of exotic birds to a rice-paper chandelier, pale wood floors and just the right balance of fresh and earthy tones.

The focus is on rest and relaxation as its owners - a mature couple who hopscotch to their homes all around the world - were looking for a simple, welcoming and stylish weekend retreat.

But what really sets the apartment apart is its pairing of nature with something more man-made - geometry, by designer Gracinha Viterbo from Viterbo Interior Design.

She says: "The hues are light and neutral, the lines simple and fresh. The homeowners are well-travelled, and wanted something different and personalised."

She retained the existing layout, which includes large, open-concept living, dining and kitchen areas; and added a sliding door to the bedroom corridor for privacy.
