LIVING IN A BOX

THIS CLEAN, WHITE HOUSE TAKES ITS STARK, MINIMALIST LOOKS SERIOUSLY.

You only have to look next door to realise the stunning transformation of this 30-year mid-terrance home in the bukit timah area. Like a freshly laundered and pressed white linen shirt, the defining lines of its exterior profile are now impeccably crisp and economical, the white and grey façade a striking contrast to the brown and beige of its neighbours. It is indeed a far cry from its previous façade, which was dominated by a large balcony area with a staggered edge and fussy balustrade railings. This dramatic facelift also extends to the interiors of the home, where clean bright spaces have a replaced the dark interiors of the past.
