Contrary to the usual belief that you should to keep a small space bare and minimal, this 570 sqft one-bedroom loft apartment in Bishan is full of fun and characters.
Home to a creative director – Carmen Tang, the apartment has lots of unique and quirky features that showcase the creativity of the homeowner and designer, including a “house within a house”.
The focal point of the house, is a metal-frame outline of a house sitting in the living room of the loft. Totally gorgeous!
A couple of exposed bulb lighting are kept dangling from the “roof” to the metal house, adding a sense of industrial feel to the loft.
Exposed brick wall is really a hit in Singapore apartment now. For Carmen’s apartment, it is done is a combination of horizontal, vertical and herringbone patterns to fill up the vertical space.
Opposite the brick wall, wood laminate paneling is used to create a feature wall to highlight the soaring ceiling height.
Fancy to day dream in a bubble chair?
You can never have enough storage space in a small space home. Elevated platform provides practical storage solution for bulky items that you don’t need on daily basis.
Maximising the vertical space of the loft, a hanging library with wire mesh floor was built to display the home owner’s collections of books and accessories.
The bedroom also features exposed brick wall, hanging light bulb and a customised bed platform made from pine pallets, to tie in with the quirky indutrial style of the living area. (Anyway, spot the Ikea PS 2012 drop-leaf table here?)
