The subtle charms of a space that is timelessly simple yet makes a sturdy case for the use of modest natural accents in deceptively simple forms crafted only through careful detailing and rigorous craftsmanship.

Owner is a carpenter and hopes to re-use the left-over raw oak materials in his carpentry factory. These natural materials come in different left-over sizes from past completed projects. The feature wall was detailed in such a way that all odd sizes are able to form a cohesive design language that flow smoothly in-between spaces to give warmth to the overall spatial experience. These unwanted raw oak planks inherit a unique character from different past projects were specially handpicked from the factory. Simple metal brushing technique was tried and tested several times to remove the dirt that was stained on the surface before it can fully reveal the hidden beauty of this unwanted natural material.

Villa 7 intended to be an understated elegance, takes whitewashed surfaces with natural finishes such as natural stones and left-over raw oak plank from timber factory in clean modern lines to a display of simple luxury without ostentation; A simple space for living.

At point of arrival at lower floor into the living and dining area, it is greeted by a full height natural stone wall to balance with the natural oak material that extends to upper floor. The most walls & floors were deliberately kept simple with muted subtle natural grains to contrast with the selected natural material, furniture, artworks and others.

Spaces are bright and light-filled with the helped of continuous soft fabric day curtain that wraps around the fenestration to keep the space airy, calming and spacious.

Transitional spaces from lower to upper floor were guided by the use of left-over natural oak material raw from the timber factory as a key design feature at various spaces to form a cohesive design language.

Wardrobe cabinets are kept away with the helped of full height timber door panel with customized fine metal handles to form part of the wall. At bedroom 1, the combination of study table & display shelves with wardrobe cabinet was designed along wall to keep the space uncluttered and spacious.

"Once upon a dream, I wished upon a star. Every day is like a holiday, in some place far. Marble floor, with patterns like water ripples. Brown hues, remind me of the woods & waffles. Breeze blows in, while I relax & do my reading. The carpets soothe my feet, a warm cozy feeling. I dance amongst the white spaces as I always do I awoke, in this villa, my dream really came true."
