Under one roof

Under one roof

WHEN Doreen Tan's four children said they all wanted to live under the same roof even after they got married, the doting mother decided to build a home that would be big enough for everyone, future grandchildren included.

Best World president's massive bungalow fits all under one roof

The result is a three-storey bungalow with a basement, off Braddell Road, where Dr Tan, the co-chairman and president of Best World International, lives with her retiree husband, Richard Pek.

The house was designed by Kyoob Architects, with designer Terence Chan from Terre Design fitting out the interiors.

The couple have two sons, both married with a child, and two daughters, who are still single.

Dr Tan and Mr Pek sleep on the top floor, which is accessible by a glass lift for those days when climbing the stairs is a chore.

Their bedroom door opens up to a massive walk-in wardrobe - easily the size of a regular bedroom - complete with an island counter that holds Dr Tan's jewellery.

Pointing to the endless white-panelled cupboard doors all around, Dr Tan quips, "Not all of them are mine. My children also store their winter clothes in some of these cupboards."

Behind those doors hides a monster - of a bathroom that is, big enough to fit a a king-sized bed, with plenty of space left over.
