Plenty of reshaping was needed to tailor this home's slender layout to the growing family.

Who: A family of five

Home: A four-storey terrace unit on the fringes of Orchard Road

Size: 2,900sqf

Having lived in many countries while amassing a collection of international furniture and art, this couple are truly global citizens at heart.

When they approached interior design firm Project File's director, Alan Choo, the seasoned designer knew that his job was simply to provide the fundamentals for the sophisticated pair and their young children.

That included reconfiguring most of the home's narrow layout to cater to each family member's needs, building plenty of storage compartments, and translating the couple's preference for neutral colours into the refurbished space.

"Besides the use of white and grey walls, and wooden tones, they left much of the space planning to me," recalls Alan, who was grateful for the trust the homeowners placed in him throughout the five-month-long renovation, which cost $260,000.
