Purity and simplicity is the essence of minimalist design, where clean-lined interiors encased in neutrality make for a sense of understated elegance.
Form is an expression of character, and in this space, large sculptural forms dominate for a bold and dramatic visual impact.

Form is an expression of character, and in this space, large sculptural forms take centre stage for a bold and dramatic visual impact.
Minimalism is embodied in the simplicity of this monolithic block that extends along the entire length of this space; exaggerating lengths and playing into the perception of elongated depth for the illusion of a larger space.
With their imposing presence, they evoke a sense of grandeur and draw attention, becoming focal points that invite exploration and contemplation.
Along these lengths, we do enjoy some negative space that exist to define boundaries between objects and bring balance to the overall composition.
The negative space is adorned with feature objects like a designer pendant lamp and wall clock, consistent with the character of the space.
Spatial planning that incorporates the use of white space effectively showcases the presence of each object, allowing them to blend harmoniously into the setting.
This 5-room apartment designed for one was divided into two distinct areas—the communal and private. The communal area consists of the living, dining and kitchen and the private area encases the bedroom and study.
The private area is concealed behind a sliding pocket door, paying homage to traditional Japanese shoji screens.
The intention to minimise the number of swing doors within the home serves to enhance the overall design aesthetic by reducing visual clutter and promoting a sense of openness. By eliminating excessive swing doors, the design emphasises a clean and minimalist approach, contributing to a sense of tranquillity and spatial continuity.
Japanese influence is also manifest in the structural lattice design prevalent in the shelving system.
In order to maintain natural light flow while establishing a pocket of space that would isolate the study, the corridor and desk area was divided by a custom-fitted lattice shelving to create a filter between two zones while preserving a level of permeability.
By prioritising the flow of natural light and minimising obstructions, the design concept maintains an open feel while allowing for an unobstructed flow of movement.
Tucked in the farthest end of this airy abode, nestled within the bedroom, lies the home’s innermost sanctum—the private bathroom.
In this transportive enclave, a shift in texture and tactility with the transition to stone-washed walls and pebble-washed flooring evokes a sense of serenity and calm, reminiscent of a bath in nature.
A recessed sink and shower shelves elevate its organic form, while its contrast against the exterior design theme and textural palette accentuates its exclusivity and intimacy.
A consistent colour palette harmoniously extends throughout the entire home, ensuring a sense of continuity and balance while allowing each space to flow seamlessly into the next.
