A Swanky Seafront Abode

IN-EXPAT as Builder

In a dense city like Singapore, apartments that are privy to good views are highly treasured. As such, the gorgeous sea view that this apartment in East Coast offers is something that the homeowner loves. The interior design brief may have been simple – to create a resort-themed home to match the panoramic view – but there is nothing ordinary about this space. The completed space bears no traces of the typical Balinese or rustic look. With its crisp colours and contemporary furnishings, the apartment is a swanky seafront abode.

On the ceiling in the living room is a “fresco” of sorts, consisting of wall coverings depicting dramatic tropical foliage. A palette of natural finishes gives this home a breezy feel. These include marble, walnut-stained timber, linen wall coverings, sisal and woven rattan. An architectural feature of this apartment is the bathroom’s curved walls. The sanctuary-like master bathroom, which embraces the unique feature, bolsters the use of organic lines in various spaces. These interior design details result in an evocative and unforgettable contemporary resort-themed ambience.
