Striking Four-Level Terrace House in Singapore by KNQ Associates
The interior design for this 4-level house in Singapore envisioned by designer Stanley Tham from KNQ Associates mixes contemporary design elements with glamorous accents, including reflective materials and luxe furnishings, to create a vibrant atmosphere. Having an insight into the family’s preferences (and becoming friends in the process) enlivens the interior scheme and adds the much needed ‘human spirit’ into the space. Understated grays and whites are interspersed with accents of bright colors for warmth in the living room. The reflection on a tall mirror wall gives a spacious look and doubles the image of the impressive light well, bringing plenty of daylight into the dining area.
The same design style continues in the bedrooms, but different accent colors in the furnishings are used to distinguish each room. In the children’s’ bedrooms, functionality is of utmost importance – to provide a conducive study corner and ample book storage for each child.As one moves up the stairs, artwork and photos hanging by the side walls provide a distinct visual experience – akin to walking through an art gallery with works that can only be curated by the home owners themselves. The family room on the 3rd story is a fully equipped entertainment suite suited for an incredible movie experience in full surround, as well as singing thousands of tunes through a massive karaoke song library.
On the roof garden, the original ceramic floor tiles have been overlaid with wood-grain homogeneous tiles to mimic timber plank decking yet ensuring easier maintenance. At the designated alfresco dining area, a newly carved planter is enhanced by dramatic up-lighting and the trickling sounds emanating from the water feature to provide a soothing dining experience during those breezy evenings.
