Singapore

A home for a closely knit family whose bond centres around family heritage, Chinese culture, and meditation.

The hearth of the home lies in the living room. A collection of dark wood Chinese furniture is neatly arranged adjacent to a neat light-grey linen laminate-cladded feature wall and a veil-like champange powder-coated aluminium trellis which masks a timber staircase beyond. An intricate patterned silk carpet co-exists with the cream cushions of the sofa and a bonsai plant to complete a contemporary Chinese picturesque interior scene. A dark wood coffeshop table sits in the entrance vestibule, welcoming guests with fresh flowers, providing a reminder that the Chinese-ness of this house, comes with a twist of Nanyang.

A signboard of a coffeeshop hangs on the wall in the dining room. Reminding the family of the business that brought food to the table just a generation back.

The dry and wet kitchens areas are separated by glass doors which keep the oil and air-conditioning out, but allow natural light to filter through.

A meditation room on the second floor is a space where the family members work on their meditative endeavors.
