A complete revamp was done to the 1964 ground floor walk-up apartment and the space was converted into the office of an interior design firm. Beyond a mere workspace, the revamped unit has a spacious kitchen as well as a chill out area at the back where the designers can cook up a good meal to relax and commune. The creation of an airwell adds a touch of green while allowing natural light into the interior, providing a calming backdrop to the working area. The handrails used in the same area is of Peranakan origin. The original window grilles were retained & ventilation blocks used in Singapore during the 1970s were used at the front part of this contemporary unit, forming a visual juxtaposition of the past and present
