You'll be surprised by the openness when you step into Dennis Cheok's home.
There are barely any walls in his 5-room HDB flat in Spottiswoode Park. In their place, frosted glass doors slide open to reveal different rooms.Photo: UPSTAIRS_
What's the inspiration for this open-concept apartment?

"I don't want her to feel like she is isolated (in her own room) so I created the sliding doors for her," the 38-year-old architect told AsiaOne in an interview.
"This way, we can have our privacy and she can feel like she is in the same room as us."Photo: UPSTAIRS_
Built in 1979, the 125 sqm flat's complete makeover took six months and cost an estimated $150,000.

Even though they've only moved in about eight months ago, Dennis shared that the 4.5 metre-long dining table has become one of the family's favourite spots in the house.
"We've built so many new memories gathering there as a family, or throwing dinner parties with friends," he said.
