5 Dramatic House Transformations in Singapore

Be astounded by the before and after transformations of each room


Singapore’s top interior designers and most outstanding homes will be awarded at the inaugural Lookbox Design Awards. We take a look at the 5 shortlisted projects from the “Most Dramatic Transformation” category:

1. akiHAUS Design Studio

This 3-bedroom apartment at Tropic Gardens was given a new look with white furnishings that brightened the rooms, and a gorgeous modern kitchen as pictured above. The designers smartly took advantage of the high ceilings to implement wall-to-wall cabinets that provide ample storage and yet blend into the space.

2. EHKA Studio

The existing inter-terrace house at Lentor Green was very old and in need of major retrofitting. Look at this amazing living room transformation from cluttered and messy to open and minimal.The designers gave the home a facelift that gives the illusion of a much a larger space.

3. Hall Interiors

The designer for this 2-bedroom condominium apartment at The Duchess has shown how important it is to think about the flow as the patrons move about the house from one room to the other. The designer swapped the positions of the kitchen and the common bedroom to create an open-kitchen concept that transitioned smoothly into the dining area.

4. Studio JP

The homeowner, who lives alone and does not cook much, asked that every single wall be changed or removed from this 3-room HDB flat. Thus, the designers creatively brought the kitchen out from the rear of the house and integarted it as part of the living area. The once narrow room is now wider and more welcoming.


For this condo apartment in Queen Astrid Gardens, the designers have concealed the pillars by joining them with an elongated wall that not only shapes the living room area, but also crafts a gallery pathway that leads one to a series of artworks on display.
