They looked up his portfolio online, and had a meeting with him when they visited Singapore. After that, Twilhaar worked with them mostly by email and messaging, such as sending over design proposals, and approving the owners’ furniture selection.To create the modern resort look that the owners wanted, Twilhaar looked to Balinese design for inspiration. He designed faux beams clad in wood veneer over the living area, giving it a more intimate and cosy ambience. “The beamed pattern is a contemporary interpretation of the wood ceilings you find in Bali. By making the beams wider and more masculine, it adds a bold statement,” Twilhaar says.
