It’s always a challenge to design a space that feels like home, but when the homeowners work in real estate and assess properties for a living, things can get particularly nerve-racking. Joey Khu’s design team was faced with this challenge when renovating this condominium unit for a young family of three. “Being in the real estate line themselves, they know how to appreciate good design,” Joey shares with us.

Living area

Fitted with a sofa and a modern coffee table from Wendelbo, the living area’s focal point is without a doubt the opaque FENIX laminate from EDL, which makes up the majority of the TV feature wall. A subtle gold trim creates some visual separation between the feature wall and the TV console.

The parents opted for “a very sleek and luxurious look,” wishing to inhabit a space that reflects their preference for modern luxury. In order to maintain this clean, minimalist look while making space for large gatherings of friends and family, the designers had to get creative with plenty of hidden storage solutions around the home. Most of the original built-ins and fittings had to go and were ultimately replaced with more functional yet stylish fixtures, such as a large mirror with hidden storage in the master bedroom. The layout of the home, however, was mostly left untouched, as the homeowners didn’t require toomany structural changes. The only major modification to the unit itself was shifting the entrance to the walk-in wardrobe, which now utilises a sliding pocket door.
