Hipster maisonette flat for this family of four

When you think of a family home in Singapore, what immediately comes to your mind?

Do you expect to see cluttered hallways, brightly-coloured furniture and child-friendly rooms?

While this might be true for many families, it is not the case for one family of four living in a maisonette apartment at Dakota Crescent.

The family, consisting of a couple in their 40s and their young son and daughter, has carved out a space that is uniquely their own in the resale flat.

Interior designers from The Scientist told AsiaOne that the client wanted a spacious kitchen in their 2,000 sq ft flat.

With this brief as their focus, the team drew up a plan for a home centred on openness. The result was a clever use of sliding glass panels as the kitchen/dining room doors.

The smooth and translucent lines of glass panels were also added to the staircase leading up to the second floor, resulting in an airy, open design that is pleasing to the eye.

The designers made sure to incorporate the family's lifestyle in their design, and judging from the free-spirited design of the home, the homeowners are probably the coolest parents (with great taste) you can find .

Throughout the home, a combination of different tiles and laminates help create a "chill" home, perfect for both entertaining guests on a Saturday night and hanging out with the kids on a Sunday afternoon.
