sent us photos and information of an asymmetrical apartment that their chief designer Stanley Tham completed in Singapore. Introducing angled lines and undulating surfaces to create a direct visual contrast against straight and flat elements, the architect deconstructed the interiors in a subtle, unobtrusive manner. Even the little details(like the customized picture of black and white photography) which decorate the walls are arranged artfully in an atypical collage arrangement to tie up with the design concept. The color palette is kept light and monochromatic to ensure the interior space stays airy and feels light.
Color blue serves a central role to keep the home from looking sterile from using a neutral scheme. The asymmetrical forms continues in the master bedroom, where a TV panel has been designed to keep the space between the end of the bed and the opposite wall clear for passage. Looking like a monolith, it breaks the regular boundary of a rectangular room and serves as part of the false ceiling to hold the lights. Similarly, a bold red wallpaper at the headboard wall -color suggested by a Feng Shui consultant- commands presence in the room.
In the study guest room, the customized built-in storage furniture is similarly designed with the central theme in mind – graphical lines create a geometric pattern on the doors for visual interest. The choice color of orange on one wall jumps at you, especially since the rest of the walls are covered in light off-white and brown tones.
