In this unconventional three-room HDB resale apartment at Holland Avenue, total exposure is the name of the game - and it makes for a gritty statement in the form of raw textures and a stark monochromatic colour palette set against a bold blue on the floor and walls.

    The result is an all-in-one space comprising kitchen, laundry and dining areas where units are laid out in close proximity. Stainless steel stove and hood abut sink and shelves, which in turn sit alongside a stacked washing machine and dryer. Workbenches on trolleys follow the home chefs around.

As seen in the 2018 edition of Home & Decor Designer Showcase.
