A four-room HDB flat makes a good home for many couples or small families. But the homeowners felt a creative approach was needed in order to utilise the space for their family of four. They brought up their space concerns to Mark Chen of Artistroom to overhaul their Toa Payoh flat.
The apartment itself had a smaller area compared to a usual four-room flat, and also only had one bathroom. Utilising every possible space was essential.
In their brief, the homeowners prioritised having ample storage, easy maintenance, and adequate kitchen space as they cook often. To address the brief, Mark reconfigured the layout to include as much concealed storage space as possible. Materials like terrazzo flooring and a subtle, muted palette were introduced to ensure that the home would stand the test of time.
