With an interior that rivals that of modern Airbnbs and boutique hotels, Room III is a cozy 3-room BTO that was meant to be the forever home of a young Singaporean couple who have since moved to Hong Kong for work.
The name stems from the straight lines that can be spotted all over the apartment and the neatly aligned, minimalist interior that seems to belong to an interior decor magazine. The space now serves as a vacation home for the two when they return to Singapore to visit family.
Built with the standard floor plan that comes with every BTO project, this 3-room flat was transformed into a spacious studio apartment with an open-plan layout by knocking down various walls in the kitchen and bedrooms, conveniently combining two bedrooms into one to maximise space.
Light wood and lighter colours, such as white and light grey, are heavily utilised in the design of this space to give it a fresh and welcoming vibe.
The open concept of the apartment continues into the kitchen, where counter space is significantly reduced to make space for concealed storage and a counter that stretches out into the dining area, creating a dual purpose island perfect for both food preparation and dining. The kitchen is then finished off with a marble tabletop and backsplash that completes its minimal aesthetic.
One vastly different aspect of Room III compared to other BTO units is that the entrance to the master bedroom sits farther down the corridor, effectively housing both the guest and ensuite bathrooms in the same room.
