Intimate Atmosphere Within A Highly Modern Apartment In Singapore
The proprietors of this apartment at the Interlace Singapore, designed by famed German architect Ole Scheeren, commissioned KNQ Associates to create an unfussy style with an intimate atmosphere. The architects aimed at a clean, contemporary yet warm language that would cater to the tastes of the youthful proprietors exceptionally well: “The interior would also need a cover like feel to create visual warmth in the spacious living space – after all, the whole apartment is more than 2000 sqft of floor space – thus we utilized a lot of warm wood lacquer, contrasting furnishings and tasty fabrics to relax the hard edges of walls and columns“.
The unique architectural design of the condominium mandates the presence of awkward, bulky columns within the unit, but the architects welcomed their existence by making them part of the interior décor. For example, the columns in the living room are covered and integrated into the design of the window bay seating which is a sprawling 30 ft long. And in the master bedroom, the column has been smartly concealed in the form of a TV feature. Overall, the project celebrates style and modernity, as befits a residence in a prime location, but never losing sight that form always follows function.
