Layout changes and clever storage solutions transformed this HDB unit into a roomy paradise for a young couple


Space 4-room HDB flat

Location Dawson Road

Reno Period 10 weeks

Home To Two adults

The past couple of months have seen a dramatic shift in homeowners’ priorities. With working from home being so commonplace now, many Singaporeans are looking at ways to incorporate an airy, comfortable home office into their abodes. The young couple residing in this 4-room HDB flat is no different, stating a spacious study as their top requirement for their brand new BTO.

Living area

With a striking media wall as its focal point, the living room boasts plenty of storage space, including a few hidden nooks and crannies behind the TV itself. Hiding the storage behind the laminated feature wall helps to maintain a clean and seamless aesthetic with lots of floor space.

To kick off the renovation, the design team at Mesh Werk Studio began by establishing the overall look of this particular home. The theme and colour palette were thankfully settled rather quickly, with the residents asking for a modern, minimalist style with some earthy accents. The designers thus came up with the toned-down colour scheme we can now observe in the unit, interspersing the white and grey hues with wooden textures to lend the home a warmer feel.
