To maximise storage and still have open spaces – that was what the homeowner couple of this three-bedroom Depot Road HDB apartment prioritised. They also wanted to move away from the contemporary rustic wooden theme that many homes steer towards these days, and opt for a modern, monochrome element instead.
To address their design brief, Arche Interior had to plan for a complete transformation, including hacking all removable walls. Although there were challenges with the structural columns that could not be removed, Arche Interior worked around them by completely reconfiguring the home and disguising them in various ways.
The homeowners’ practical sensibilities also came into play, so there are plenty of hidden gems like a concealed bathroom and a countertop that runs all the way from the kitchen to the dining room.
