The designers took a “holistic approach” towards creating a home that not only fulfilled the design brief, but was also a cosy and liveable, blank canvas on which the owners could make their own mark. The approach, says Liau, “creates visual clarity which allows the clients to easily fill their small home with personal items.”
This is best seen in the open-plan living and dining areas where cool neutral hues set a tranquil tone. In contrast, touches of bright colour, plush textures and natural greenery enliven the space.
Dark walnut laminate flooring also helps to ground the space. The strong lines of the frames are softened by the simple, rounded shapes of a Scandi-style, two-level coffee table and a circular rug.
A view of the living area shows the distinct black frames, which cut across the bare expanse of the concrete screed wall. The frames also create niches for artwork and other decorative accents.
