Minimalistic, industrial, bare and beautiful.
This HDB maisonette designed by JQ Ong says it all.
Cement screed flooring always reminds me of my childhood days spent at my grandmother’s house. The cooling effect felt underfoot was a joy in our hot weather. It is a material with timeless appeal and looks great with almost any décor. The finish of cement screed flooring will change as it ages and cracks are expected to occur overtime. That’s what making it raw and beautiful.
In this apartment designed by Artistroom, the build-ins and colour scheme were kept simple and streamlined; giving enough breathing space for the gorgeous screed flooring and kitchen backsplash to shine. It is effortlessly beautiful.

Few months ago, there was this program “Small Spaces” 小空间 shown on Channel 8, that I followed every week. In each episode, Belinda Lee, the host explored the design and spatial planning of small apartments in Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
Among the Singapore apartments featured in the show, this one is my favourite. It is a 893 sqft 3-room HDB flat that has been transformed by 0932 Design Consultants into this beautiful home.
