The Art Deco style terrace house in 55 Blair Road, Singapore was the architecture works by Architects Ong & Ong Pte Ltd with the Project Team among Diego Molina, Maria Arango, Camilo Pelaez, Ryan Manuel, Linda Qing. The Concept is to create a light open plan living space, whilst promoting Inside/outside space. The contrasting relationship between the metallic elements and subtle tones within the house create an exciting spatial relationship throughout. The Interior Design was Completed by YPS design and the result is light open plan living which is unusual to this type of terrace house. This residence brings a balance between nature and contemporary living in a renovation of an Art Deco style terrace. The traditional flooring was used within the modern addition. The walnut planks runs through the second and third floors in response to the heritage of the property. Please take a look for some Interior design photos below which was taken by photographer Derek Swalwell.
