Room Tour: Attic is Transformed into A Woodsy Wonderland
A tree-house concept comes to fantastical life in this split-level playroom

Location: Paya Lebar
Designer: Wayne Chan of Icon Interior Design Pte Ltd
The corner terrace was to be renovated with a farmhouse theme; this would carry into one of the rooms on the third storey that was intended as the kids’ playroom. Chan decided to remove the false ceiling, revealing the attic space above this room. With this higher ceiling, he proposed a mezzanine level built from 25mm-thick plywood on solid wood supports for the playroom.
Incorporating the farmhouse theme, Chan designed the playhouse as a treehouse, with the mezzanine level creating the feeling of being up in the branches.
Toys are kept in the tree trunk, and the kids can bring out whichever assortment they want to play with for the day.
