Minimalistic, industrial, bare and beautiful.
This HDB maisonette designed by JQ Ong says it all.
The is a 180sqm apartment located in Odessa, Ukraine. Another recently completed project by 2B.GROUP architecture firm.
The owner had requested the architects to create an open space that is conducive for hosting parties and guests, but still feel cozy for her. To create an open sense of space, there are minimum doors or walls in the apartment. Instead, different zones of living space were subtly divided by concrete columns, curtains, and different floor heights. The layout of the apartment is carefully planned in such a way that her guests can mingle from one zone to the other with ease, but when a guest stays in one area, he only see what is functionally justified and preserving privacy of other areas.
The overall look of the apartment speaks industrial. To bring warmth to the concrete columns and ceiling, there are plenty of wood used in the furniture and kitchen. In the bedroom, did you notice that moorings were used to create the mouldings on the wall? The idea feels original, and it is a nice touch that added elegance to the interior.
Oh yea, remember to check out the toilet/bathroom of this apartment. So stylish that it will impress every guests!
It was a love at first sight when I got my hands on the magazine in August.
I’ve always liked the modern classical look – think wall mouldings, window shutters. Using the traditional look as canvas, the designer has layered the space with rustic, industrial, country and contemporary aesthetics to create a traditional yet eclectic home for the owner.

When Adora Green DBSS project was just launched, I visited the show flat in Yishun with my then-boyfriend (husband now!). The was probably the first show flat we visited in the process of house hunting. We didn’t get the flat, but I could still remember the big balcony that comes with the unit.
And time flies, I think Adora Green was completed since last year.
Today I going to share a new project from The Scientist, which is a 990 sqf, 4-room apartment at Adora Green.
The leather sofa and pop art print in the living room, patterned tiles on dining room walls, sort of remind me of the eclectic, hipster apartments in Barcelona that I’ve seen from the Airbnb site.
The “uneven” storage cabinet, is another focal point of the space. I like the laminate used here, it brings out just the right amount of rawness for a refined industrial look.
Love everything in this room, especially the rug! It is essentially an “as-is” room from HDB, but look so cool with all the right choice of furniture and soft-furnishings.
