For digital marketer Amanda and civil servant Toby, putting together their matrimonial home was not just about the two of them. When they engaged award-winning design practice Asolidplan, founded by architect Wong Ker How, to design the interior of their home, Merry and Pippin, a pair of British Shorthair brothers, were a key consideration.
“We wanted a home that is bright, airy and cosy. In our discussions with Ker How, we talked about pets a lot. Our cats had to have an open space to roam around in, so we opted for an open-concept design,” says Amanda.
