Anchor the look

Anchor the look

Married couple Christian Wong, 36, and Dawn Ow, 34, have always dreamt of living in a beach house.

In land-scarce Singapore, they have turned their 1,076 sq ft apartment into the next best thing.

Their two-bedroom Bayshore Park condominium unit resembles the interior of a ship, with white tongue and groove wooden panelling on walls and the ceiling of the living room, reminiscent of a ship's cabin.

A clock shaped like a ship's steering wheel and porthole-style mirrors adorn the walls. Models of old ships are also scattered throughout the apartment.

The balcony, which stretches from outside the living room to the master bedroom, serves as an alfresco dining area.

It has an outdoor bamboo deck where you can enjoy the sea breeze from East Coast Park. There are also replicas of a vintage diving helmet and an engine order telegraph device, which was used by the wheelhouse of a ship to give instructions to the engine room.

Mr Wong says: "We removed a whole row of walls facing the balcony, so there is more space here. The previous owners didn't make use of the balcony and used it to store junk."
