5 Clever, Multi-Tasking HDB Study Rooms
Want to maximise that spare room? It can be more than your study or home office – as these designs show
The study rooms in these HDB flats don’t just take the above needs into consideration. They’ve also been designed to be light-filled, airy and visually pleasing. With non-structural walls hacked open and replaced with glass panels, they maintain enclosures for concentrating on work but are beautifully incorporated with the more social living and dining areas.
The chillout function of this room also allows the homeowners to watch different TV shows simultaneously.
