This apartment was actually listed in Airbnb before, but i could no longer find the listing now. Visit the facebook page of this apartment if you have any enquiry!

| The Tiong Bahru Series | Pre-war Apartment with a Private Pool

This is a listing I found in Airbnb.

Having stayed at an Airbnb apartment in my recent trip to Paris, I was curious to find out what are the kind of listing available back in Singapore, and saw this stunning place.

It is a pre-war (cira 1930s) ground floor flat that is located at the Tiong Bahru Conservation Art Deco Estate.

The flat has an open plan living, deck and study area. Upon entering the flat, you will be greeted by a colorful Moroso hanging chair by Patricia Urquiola, and a pair of Moooi heracleum lamp. Oh, and have I mentioned that it also comes with a private plunge pool?

How cool is that?

| The Tiong Bahru Series |

Pre-war architecture and heritage hawkers, along with quaint cafes and new eateries have made Tiong Bahru the much sought-after place to live and work in, a place-to-be for hipsters.

This is the neighborhood that your will find those charming pre-war and post-war flats that were built in the 1930s and 1940s. Their unique Art Deco architecture design is such a gem, and I keep wonder why HDB just don’t continue to build such flats for us in Singapore anymore?

In this series of posts, I will be sharing some of the prettiest renovated Tiong Bahru flats I’ve stumbled online. Hope you like it too!

If you are interested to explore more in-depth on the area, find out more from the National Heritage Board Tiong Bahru Heritage Trail.

An eclectic, modern classical condominium in Singapore

This is a project by three-d conceptwerke that was recently featured in the August issue of Home & Decor magazine.

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.

A Punggol Walk 5-room Flat by Fuse Concept

This is a 5 room HDB flat in Punggolwalk, designed by Fuse Concept.

White walls, wood floor, and enough breathing space for the beautiful furniture and art to stand out; it has a pared down aesthetic which I’m starting to appreciate more and more.
