The house was under construction when the architects were engaged to work on the interior design. The brief was to create a comfortable, cozy interior that works with the architecture. The client was also into Buddhism, meditation, and Chinese culture and wanted the home to reflect these elements.
The heart of the home lies in the living room. A collection of dark wood Chinese furniture is neatly arranged adjacent to a neat light-grey linen laminate-cladded feature wall and a veil-like champagne powder-coated aluminum trellis, which masks a timber staircase beyond. An intricately patterned silk carpet co-exists with the cream cushions of the sofa and a bonsai plant to complete a contemporary Chinese picturesque interior scene. A dark wood coffee shop table sits in the entrance vestibule, welcoming guests with fresh flowers, providing a reminder that the Chineseness of this house comes with a twist of Nanyang.
