It's black, white and full of life.

Packed with life and ardor, the designers frosted this ultra-modern 4-room HDB with predominantly black and white but the play with lightings and different texture adds a certain degree of quirk and fun which emanates throughout the entire home.

The reflective surfaces and glass partitions used in the common areas create spatial enhancement, adding depth and height. The living area and dining area are kept open, with barely a piece to anchor their distinction. As the homeowners preferred simple, fuss-free furniture, a large, sofa is used and is perfectly complemented with glass centre table. Spatial enhancement is once again effectively employed in the contemporary kitchen where a suspended bar takes the spotlight. Ample working space allows the homeowners to cook with gusto, while sufficient wall cabinets keep things neatly tucked away.

The bedrooms are also kept simple, sleek and modern. Clean lines and storage spaces characterize the modest wardrobe cum study area.


  • Specially designed cabinets next to the entrance provides ample storage for shoes while the sitting area and mirror add convenience.
  • Though black laminates were used in the kitchen, the kitchen feels bright and airy with the use of see through glass door and white walls.
  • Suspended cabinets with light on the bottom gives further illusion of space and lightness.
  • A small area of the room was tastefully partitioned to be the wardrobe and study area while the sleeping area was kept simple, sleek and cosy.
  • White, full panel sliding door used in this room does not make the room feel restricted and gives a modern touch.
  • Open concept wardrobe is so appropriate for this small space and the open vanity area is yet another convenient idea from the designer.
  • Use of black tiles in different sizes and texture is so simple yet so interesting.
