Home: Three-storey semi-detached house
Who: A couple, their two sons, and daughter-in-law
For a dwelling in which the Tay family feel truly at home, an extensive overhaul with structural alterations to the facade and interiors was involved. The work took over a year and was overseen by Adrian Heng of Ottimo Spazi, and the result is a luxurious modern classic, hotel-inspired look.
"The idea was to instill a feel of living in a plush hotel suite," says Adrian. He designed the three-storey house based on a colour theme of contrasting dark tones and shades of white, with pops of colour.
Each family member decided on the details for their respective areas of the house, says the designer, allowing for personalisation of their private space.
Occupying almost the entire third floor is the elder son and daughter-in-law's space - a monochromatic open-concept setting that includes a concealed walk-in wardrobe.
Despite each having a comfortable, private sanctuary, Adrian ensured that the home still has a consistent look throughout, unified by the choice of materials and decorating style. Seen around the rooms are lots of stone finishes in the flooring and counters, feature walls with plush panelling, and clean-cut built-in structures. To up the luxe factor and soften the spaces, numerous area rugs, from cowhide to tufted, patterned ones, are included.
Another unique feature of the home is the loose furniture items. From the marble-and steel coffee table to the high-back accent chairs upholstered in velvet-look fabric, all were customised and made locally. Adrian even had fabrics specially imported from different parts of Europe to accentuate the overall design.
This attention to detail adds a sense of sophistication and character, turning the home into an inviting abode with stunning style and timeless appeal.
