The owners of this apartment at the Interlace, designed by famed German architect Ole Scheeren, commissioned us to create an unfussy décor that underplayed the outlook of the building and gives it a close, intimate atmosphere.

For this project, we wanted to achieve a look that would reflect the spirit of the young owners - a clean, contemporary yet warm language caters to their tastes very well. The interior would also need to have a cocoon-like feel to create visual warmth in the spacious living space - after all, the entire apartment is over 2000 sqft of floor space - hence we employed plenty of warm wood veneer, contrasting furnishings and luscious fabrics to soften the hard edges of walls and columns. This scheme also helps to 'pull' everything in.

The unique architectural design of the condominium mandates the presence of awkward, bulky columns within the unit, but we welcomed their existence by making them part of the interior décor. For example, the columns in the living room are covered and integrated into the design of the window bay seating which is a sprawling 30 ft long. And in the master bedroom, the column has been smartly concealed in the form of a TV feature.

Overall, the project celebrates style and modernity, as befits a residence in a prime location, but never losing sight that form always follows function.
