With a newborn baby joining their family, homeowners Yurina Hayashi and Chris Cusack had a clear idea of what they desired for their new duplex apartment. “We wanted the style to be modern and quite minimalist, and to employ a consistent colour theme throughout the house in black, grey and white,” says Hayashi.

Following an online search for decor inspiration, the couple chose to work with Summerhaus D’zign as they liked the style of the firm’s portfolio and felt a creative connection with design partner Jacelyn Chieng.

“We worked very closely with Yurina to bring to life what she had in mind: from the style and color palette to the textures and overall look.
