Room Tour: A Cat-Centric Living Room
This multi-functional living area is a purr-fect example of how humans and felines can share a space harmoniously

Location: The Lush condominium at Duku Road
Size of the room: 12 sqm (129 sq ft)
Designer: Pan Yi Cheng of Produce
An open-plan layout gives both two-legged and four-legged residents plenty of space to move around. Furniture pieces can easily be arranged according to need. All cabinetry are in the same maple finish – most are in veneers, while some doors are done in solid maple strips –selected so cats can scratch. The consistent wood detail and colour help make the room look brighter and larger, while under-cabinet lights add warmth to the space. Display accessories are purposely absent on the TV console, giving the cats more places to sit and rest.
To make sure that the space is indeed cat-friendly, Pan worked with the owners even after they moved in to check how the cats were doing. “Several modifications were done to the cat climb to ensure that they could move up and down with greater ease and prevent falling,” he says. Doors were also fitted with cat flaps, including the glass doors to the balcony so that the cats can go out for birdwatching.

When the workstations are stowed away and the mobile benches are returned back to their place, all that is left is the leather Luna sofa, which is always a comfy spot for unwinding. It’s the fuss-free, clean-lined design that makes this space a cosy haven for its dwellers, furry friends included.
