The owners of Echelon had a clear idea of what they wanted when they approached Home Guide to help with the interior design of their home in Singapore. A brand new three bedroom loft in an apartment block overlooking the city, this was a dream space for the design team to work on. With a double volume living area, the sweeping views are the star attraction, but the designers have managed to create spaces that are sophisticated and contemporary and the perfect complement to those views.

The client initially wanted to use warm colours and finishes throughout, however the designers knew that in practice this would be overwhelming, given the generally hot temperatures that occur throughout the year in Singapore. Instead, they suggested a combination aesthetic, using a cool colour palette of greys and concrete in the living areas, with warm elements introduced in the use of timber and smart cosy lighting, in other areas. The result is an elegant home with a balance of temperature perfect for Singapore interior design, and for their clients to enjoy.

The double volume living area with warm lighting and clean lines.

Attention is drawn to the double volume space, with a feature wall painted in a metallic steel grey. During the day, the coolness of the colour permeates the room, while at night the light from the elegant pendant picks up the warm gold metallic glint. The furnishings were carefully selected to complete the sophisticated space, complimented by the backdrop of the city lights.

The open plan kitchen and dining space maintains the clean lines of the living area, however warmer finishes have been used to create a more cosy space. The peninsula counter top creates an open transition from kitchen to dining space and is ideal for entertaining. The large bronze mirrors in the dining area and passage, were added to create a sense of space.
