I have searched the website for small unit renovation idea and could not find any to my liking. Managed to narrow down two designer and visit them.
First designer is an architect by profession, his idea is to create space for small unit condo, means knocking down the master bedroom to combine with the living… though did create space but living room is gone, not what I visualise to be my home.
Then I came to The Minimalist Society, met up with Julie the designer and she gave an introduction of their design concept … keep it simple but effective and efficient use of space.
This was exactly what I am looking to fit into my 500sqft condo. Julie attentively listen to my idea and vision of what I want to have on the finish result of my unit. After a length of Q&A without hesitation, I inked the contract with them to start the design work and the rest is history.
The whole duration from design phase to material selection, to construction phase and handover was a breeze. Basically, have the option of active participation in the process or seat back relax and wait for the final result. I participated in the material selection with Julie, handover the keys to her, settle the permit to work and leave the rest to her. I received progressive picture via Whatapps and could see the progress of the work, putting piece by piece together as what I see on the 3-D design. The day when I collect my keys is when I really appreciate the design being materialise seeing the actual built up. The major work is carpentry, I really appreciate their good workmanship and also the painting and electrical works.
Julie designed all custom-built furniture to maximise space, I only bought 2 piece of furniture which is a high chair for dining and a chair for study table.
A 500sqft condo unit that comes with 2 bedrooms, TMS make full use of every corner with custom-built feature and minimise buying loose furniture. The Minimalist Society done it, amazing!
Thank you, Julie and your team.
