Residence @ Lakeshore is a 3-bedroom apartment located besides Jurong Lake Garden, for a young family with 2 children. The design of the interior of this apartment is modern and minimalistic, with emphasis on natural material like stone and wood as the main material palette. LIVING-DINING-DRY KITCHEN The highlight of the apartment is the view to Jurong Lake Garden, which can be appreciated once you enter through the main door. The open plan that arranged the entrance foyer, dry-kitchen, dining and living room as a seamlessly continuous space allows the view of the Jurong Lake Garden from all these functional zones, making it the most important decision taken to the planning of the space. On one side of the space, a marble-clad wall (Black forest) is the feature - stretching continuously from the entrance foyer, through the dry-kitchen, dining space, living room to the large windows framing the Lake Garden at the end. The natural veins of the black forest marble arranged in a horizontal manner resembles the waves of water, complementing the feeling of living besides a lake. On the other side, a black tinted mirror wall enlarged the interior space through reflection and further extend the panoramic view of Lake Garden through the windows. GALLERY Extending beyond the mirror wall is the gallery leading into the private realms of the house – bedrooms and study room. Designed with wood finishing the walls and ceiling, the gallery unifies the entrances into the different rooms as one, transcending a mere distribution space – as a place for art collection display. ROOMS The gallery leads into a few rooms. The study room is designed as an extension of the gallery with only glass doors dividing the physical space. The master bedroom continues the use of wood in design expression, emphasising the natural material and minimalist style. The guest room is designed with an automatic Murphy Bed to suit the use of this room - a space that is multifunctional. The children room’s wall is painted like a beach front, pushing the imagination of the children’s mind with its’ association to the lake besides.
A stunning minimal master bathroom featuring marble shower herringbone and mosaic floor tiles. Also features a modern floating toilet, quartz shower bench, and custom white oak shaker vanity with stacked quartz countertop.
Haven Design and Construction
Remodeling the master bath provided many design challenges. The long and narrow space was visually expanded by removing an impeding large linen closet from the space. The additional space allowed for two sinks where there was previously only one. In addition, the long and narrow window in the bath provided amazing natural light, but made it difficult to incorporate vanity mirrors that were tall enough. The designer solved this issue by incorporating pivoting mirrors that mounted just below the long window. Finally, a custom walnut vanity was designed to utilize every inch of space. The vanity front steps in and out on the ends to make access by the toilet area more functional and spacious. A large shower with a built in quartz shower seat and hand held shower wand provide touch of luxury. Finally, the ceramic floor tile design provides a mid century punch without overpowering the tranquil space.

Most people dream of having an open-concept kitchen featuring a bar or island counter, but also need an enclosed space to do heavy-duty cooking. When this homeowner had the same request for his 118sqm home in Ritz Regency, our designer, Caine, proved it possible by reconfiguring the layout to include both a bar and wet kitchen. Although the decor is mostly contemporary, other themes come into play too. The carved coffee table, for instance, stands out as a unique piece that contrasts with the modern space.
Combining Japanese influences, a gentle colour palette inspired by one of Italy’s legendary printmakers, and a furniture collection from Scandinavian brands created this cosy abode. Functionality is key within Japandi aesthetic and this can be seen with plenty of storage built around the apartment. The neutral scandi tones are balanced with rich and warm tones of green in the living room and kitchen, creating an interior that warms the soul. The owners’ favourite hotel is a cosy hideaway in Barcelona called the Margot House where surfaces are whitewashed and mixed with light wood textures, naturally inspiring this very Japandi space.
