Everything about this high-end four-bedroom condominium at Duo Residences will make you go wow – read on and watch the video at the end.
Living here are business owner Charles Cheo, his wife Lili and their twin boys.
Raymond Seow of Free Space Intent was tasked to design the interior. “I opted for a darker colour palette that conveys a more luxurious and opulent feel,” the design director says.
Apart from design and space planning, Charles was also very involved in furniture selection.
As a fan of Italian furniture, he hand-picked many pieces by Italian designers.
One of the very first pieces that he decided on was a Giorgetti Galet coffee table, which was inspired by the imperfect regularity of a pebble.
Charles chose it for its curved form that echoes the curvilinear building envelope.
This organic language extends to various design features and even the choice of materials within the apartment. The living room ceiling has elliptical drop panels that mirror the pebble-like silhouette of the coffee table below.
Marble from the feature wall takes pride of place as a recessed display ledge along the entrance foyer too, framed by a special metal laminate clad over built-in cabinets.
Many of the art pieces within the home have a recurring nature theme.
The master bedroom has an understated design, with a few strategic elements that give visual focus. The headboard is a collage of stone-like laminate juxtaposed with antique mirror panels to create a rustic feel.
A remnant piece of the dining room marble was put to good use, forming a ledge above a built-in cabinet below the wall-mounted television set.
Entering the boys’ bedroom feels like you are being transported to another galaxy.
Raymond transformed the bedroom into the interior of a space shuttle.
“The perspective of a flight deck conveys depth, which gives a sense of space to a room that is not large,” he says.
The solar system ceiling design was the inspiration behind the space-themed bedroom for the twins.
