This week, we visit a 5-room resale HDB in Ang Mo Kio that has been completely transformed. Homeowners Joy and Shyan were particularly inspired from South America, with lots of curvature on the walls and furnishing. The entrance of the home is quite distinct, as they created a cove for more privacy as it was facing a common corridor. The pebble-washed finish at the entrance leads into the cement screed floors for the communal areas, with vinyl flooring used for the bedrooms.
The thing that catches your eye here would be the incredible 5m long kitchen island, which forms an open space for when guests come over (that cement bench helps add more seating space). The uniquely coloured green/blue stained ply-cladding panels behind opens two different entrances to the master bedroom.
For the living area, the balcony can be opened up via the accordion doors to form one seamless space. When closed, it transforms into a cosy space with a ledge by the window for a place to chill and enjoy the unblocked view.
Behind the living room, the curved window helps to frame the study along with the pink circular shelving in the study, which also provides another eye-catching feature when viewed from the living.
