| THE TIONG BAHRU SERIES | 57 Eng Hoon by asolidplan

Every time I discover a beautifully renovated Tiong Bahru flat, I always wished that HDB would build something like these charming white flats again.

This is a project by asolidplan.

The owner is a French art curator who wanted the apartment to be utilized as a partial gallery of her various work. I think the designer has delivered just that. Nothing over the top here. By thoughtfully stripping off the plasters of a few walls and beams, it allows the nostalgic elements and the owner’s art collection to be the main character of the apartment.

| The Tiong Bahru Series | Retrolicious Heritage Penthouse

This retrolicious heritage penthouse is a walk-up penthouse for short term lease, video and photography location rental. The flat from the 1960’s was overhauled completely by the owner to reveal the style and beauty of yesteryear’s charm.

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!
