The East Coast region is an area of Singapore with significant Peranakan heritage and culture. Grandeur Park’s location in historic Tanah Merah gave us the perfect setting to bring these elements in an elegant and modern way into the interior design of this unit. The family unit living in this 3-bedroom unit are a family of four, parents with a young son and a teenage daughter. The owners of the house are modern working individuals with strong ties to their local heritage, hence the unit is designed to reflect the contemporary taste that they have, yet still draw influence from traditional Peranakan and oriental elements in order to create a unique and tasteful apartment.
Grandeur Park Residences Design Concept
A contemporary mood is set with neutral colours, in warm blacks, whites and greys, with accents of gold to bring in a luxurious atmosphere. Traditional elements appear here and there in a playful manner, such as in the “kopitiam” dining table, and the “lanterns” hanging from the ceiling. A common space in the form of a study has been created adjacent to the living room, creating a way for the family to spend time together though they may be pursuing separate activities. The parents can be working at the study desk while their daughter watches TV in the living room and their son plays in his corner, yet they are all in view of each other and fully within earshot, opening the lines of communication between them.

The girl’s bedroom is a haven for a teenage girl to rest and study. A study desk is cantilevered at the foot of her bed, creating an unlikely study area from an otherwise unusable space. Here, she is able to store her books on the cantilevered shelves, as well as her memories with her friends and family under the glass of her desk.

The master bedroom gives the parents of the home a space together to relax, be it by watching TV, or even just enjoying the fresh air from the balcony. Internally, separate spaces have been carved out for both “him” and “her” in the form of separate dressing areas. She has a dresser with storage for her jewellery, makeup and accessories, while he has a mirror with some shelving for his body or hair products.
