CLAS­SI­CAL RE­DUX

This Vic­to­rian- style home was achieved through cus­tomised fea­tures and a care­ful selec­tion of mod­ern and vin­tage- look fur­ni­ture.

This HDB five-room flat in Hougang was trans­formed into an in­ti­mate, clas­si­cal abode, thanks to the mas­tery of in­te­rior de­sign firm Three-D Con­ceptwerke. The home­own­ers, a cou­ple in their 50s, are fond of Vic­to­rian-es­que in­te­ri­ors – from or­nate cor­nices to dramatic fur­nish­ings – and had re­quested a sim­i­larly lux­u­ri­ous, yet mod­ern look.

The lay­out of the 1,400sqf flat al­lowed for a foyer, with an arch door frame and a cus­tomised vin­tage-look con­sole that sets the scene. As the Vic­to­rian era was known for its elab­o­rate gar­dens, the cou­ple wanted their own, too; a wa­ter fea­ture clad in ar­ti­fi­cial plants and roses was a vi­brant ad­di­tion to the pris­tine white-gold in­te­ri­ors.

Plush vel­vet fur­nish­ings frame the liv­ing room, while a glass chan­de­lier and clas­si­cal paint­ing in the din­ing room – which was pre­vi­ously a bed­room – im­bue a lav­ish at­mos­phere. The open­ing to the mas­ter bed­room was also torn down to make space for a walk-in wardrobe, which was wain­scoted to match the rest of the home’s Vic­to­rian-style fea­tures.
