Even if it looks like a warehouse, it can be home. This modern industrial HDB at Bukit Batok is testament. Although raw elements blend quietly, the garish lights illumine dark colours and exposes hidden corners.
Juz Interior Designer breathed new life into this 4 room HDB resale flat at Bukit Batok with a budget of $50K.
As you walk into the home, you’re immediately overwhelmed by raw materials. A tan leather sofa is positioned across a hide rug. Secondly, the custom made full length cabinet’s wood grains is left unpainted. Even the display cabinet is a bold black aluminium frame, reminiscent of a sensible, no-frills factory floor.
Collectively, the bold, dark colours and chunky solid lines emanate a masculine feel more suited for a bachelor pad. Hence, selecting suitable colour tones, pops of orange colour in the wall art and the round coffee tables soften the overall look for a family friendly home.
The TV feature wall is a slim rectangular block of walnut wood. The very same wood grain which is used in the rest of the Bukit Batok resale HDB’s carpentry.
Other customised carpentry projects in the home include this handmade dining set. The gun metal grey laminated slab of wood is supported by two pieces of acrylic positioned in a V-shape. Certainly, an unmistakable sign of a modern home!
INDUSTRIAL HDB KITCHEN
The kitchen is separated into a wet and dry section. Clear sectionals are a core element of modern industrial interior design. Afterall, the house must be thought of as a well-oiled machinery to optimise flow of work. To successfully create an industrial HDB, a sliding glass frame door separates the dining area and the wet kitchen. Two things are achieved. First, a clear division of activity is established without cramping the room visually. Secondly, a large open space becomes optional by simply sliding the door away.
