We have been engaged for this unique EC home design at Singapore. Visitors are welcomed with a grand and luxurious garden terrace on their very first sight when stepping into the house.
The architect has positioned the garden terrace between main entrance and the main indoor spaces like living, dining and dry kitchen. This space arrangement make the garden terrace indeed the entry foyer area and also allow ample natural lights to flow into the indoors interior spaces.
It makes garden terrace a multi functional space and let the home owners having the flexibility of expanding their daily household and social activities inside the interior living space to terrace area whenever it is necessary.
A unique timber handrails are designed along the existing window balcony walls that double up as display shelves for plant pots and umbrella holder.Sliding louvered window panels help to keep out of flashing rains.
We painted the very first side wall next to the main entrance with eye catching yellow colour to impose first visual impacts for home owners and visitors while they entering the home.
The yellow wall also becomes a interesting feature backdrop for the garden terrace and also dining area when looking out from indoor living areas too.
Nowadays, condominium living emerges as a more affordable and safety home for general citizens on the ever raising housing price scenarios.
While condominium can offer a convenient and comfortable home stay, we will need to make good use of every inches of house compound as the build ups area become ever smaller with every new launched properties.
Small Living Room Design Ideas
Here we would like to share our design scheme for small condo design ideas for all of you.
1. Well Defined Colour Palettes
We need to find a uniform colour scheme that will be applied throughout the house so small condo home will looks relatively wider. Overwhelming co- existence of many main colours within small compound will made the space more divided and visually clustered.
Generally applying a colour blending scheme of 6:3:1 ratio with a bright colour as main colour and a single secondary complement colour on selected wall or floor and a few small vibrant accent colours on decorative items like painting and soft pillows will be sufficient for achieving appealing and lively spaces.
2. Plaster Ceiling Not A Must
Don’t fully cover the whole house with plaster ceiling that might made the space compact. Instead opt for having plaster ceiling only at either living or kitchen area and remain the existing slab for the rest.
This will not only save some renovation cost yet also help to define our house into different activity zonings.
