Joo Chiat penthouse with vertical garden

By penthouse standards, this 1,500 sq ft (139 sqm) duplex off Joo Chiat might be considered small, so the owner’s interior design consultants, Distinctidentity, sought to maximise its space.

They proposed an innovative solution to the couple’s storage problems in the living room – a feature wall that stores shoes and also displays ornaments.

The balcony’s relaxed vibe is enhanced by a glass roof above the long dining table, lit by huge candles set on the corners of the floor decking made from recycled palm wood.
