The show flat is a 130sqm 3 bedrooms 2 levels show flat. We wanted to create a comfortable, spacious, loft space within a 4.3m height split level, as well as giving a luxurious touch. The original space feels confined due to low ceiling height. Design challenge was to create a space that defines a clean, calm, cozy living style. We sculpted the space like an artwork. Since it's all in a very tight dimensions, our completed loft ground floor height is 2.05m and first floor height is 1.95m. Concealed lighting, wall wash lighting from bottom were used as main lighting solutions to avoid additional add-on dimensions to lower the ceiling height, plus creating a soft, even, and relaxing atmosphere. Concealed lighting space also space to run A/C pipe, spaces are always multi-purpose, compact yet complex. A combination of wood texture, cement boards, stone tiles was used to keep the ambiance natural and comfortable.
