This week we visit a really special home in Bukit Batok West. Homeowners YaYa and Jun Yao have really transformed this 1,490 square feet 5-room resale HDB into a unique home + studio arrangement. From the custom made metal gate at the entrance, it sets the tone for the distinctive details of the home.
They customised the kitchen to make it smaller, but what’s really interesting is that as the windows were originally outside the balcony, they removed it all to create a really serene balcony. As such, the balcony is like an extension, but separated with foldable glass panels that allow them to open up the entire space. The size of the home also allowed them to create a separate studio space, that is accessible from the balcony – which is almost like coming out of your home and into your office/studio space.
The studio itself features a custom light from Taiwan, and display cabinets to showcase materials.
Special thanks to YaYa and Jun Yao for showing us around their unique home. For more of their works, visit https://www.nodstudio.asia/works/
