As the family grows and changes, so does a home. This was the case for this terrace home in the Southwest, as their three daughters are now fully-grown adults. To accommodate their family’s changing needs, the homeowners appointed Mark Chen of Artistroom to fully redesign the home.
One of the most important considerations was to have large enough communal spaces to facilitate precious family time, while retaining enough bedrooms for each family member to retreat to when they want privacy. To do this, Mark started from scratch, tearing down the original two-storey build and reconstructing it as a three-storey house, with plenty of large and seamlessly-connected communal areas. This gives the family enough room to host social gatherings as well, which they love to do.
It helped that the homeowners have a professional background in fabricating and supplying concrete slabs for construction projects. Their expertise allowed them to explore different techniques for integrating large-format stone and tiles into the living, kitchen and bathroom areas together with Mark, resulting in a visually seamless space that showcases the natural beauty of the grain.
