Ang Mo Kio
Setting up home in an older estate such as Ang Mo Kio, the clients wanted to pay homage to its surroundings by installing an “old-school” iron gate. Together with the mosaic tiles peppered in black and white, this framed the tone for the apartment.
At one glance you can see the open concept apartment being pulled together with a monochromatic colour palette: simple black and white. From the cabinets and kitchen island to the tiles and the electrical wiring, black is the dominant colour—like a marker dictating the flow and structure of the apartment. However, the colours are broken up with patterns like the Peranakan-inspired cement tiles, proving that same colours can work together, in different forms.
