Design is an important aspect in architecture and it can make or break how a home looks like. We’ve all been to houses where we’ve judged uncles & aunties on their renovation choices. It’s hard to believe it took them 1 year to make a house look bad, amirite?
Singaporeans have been very inventive with their home makeovers. Remember the McDonald’s apartment decor that furniture store FIF Singapore came up with last month?
Well, we’ve found another Singaporean dream home makeover that we’re lovin’ as well… This time, it’s a HDB Flat located in Bukit Batok and it may be one of the best we’ve seen in terms of aesthetics.
The 5-room unit has been completely renovated into a ryokan house – a type of traditional Japanese inn – completed by Goy Architects.
Take a look below:
The house incorporates a lot of smart Japanese architectural designs – a shoji (Japanese sliding doors), natural lighting, nude and earthy tones to compliment the overall design. And wood. Lots of wood.
We’d sleep all day in this cosy bedroom
Every little detail gives the house a genuine ryokan feel, from the teapot and cup, rattan mat, and low hanging lantern, the house eludes a warm and inviting presence.
We don’t mind crying in this shower
The design continues across the house and to the kitchen with an open-kitchen concept with a floating countertop that serves as a dining table, creating the illusion of space.
We made a conclusion: It’s beautiful and we’ll stay forever, thank you.
