Good Class Bungalows are the cream of the crop when it comes to luxurious homes
in Singapore. Here’s a peek into the stunning interiors of some well-designed GCBs.
A black-and-white bungalow with contemporary touches
Black and white bungalows in Singapore are colonial-era abodes that were built by the British in the late 19th century. Designworx Interior Consultant worked to bring this 8,940 sqft GCB to life whilst conserving its historical elements. To do so, the team referenced the facade of the bungalow by adding angular forms and black trimmings to the ceiling coves, staircase balustrades and marble flooring. Modern influences in the form of Italian furnishings and bespoke pieces create a mesmerising and cosy space.
The home’s innovative design and exquisite interiors also earned it the Best Show Unit (Reader’s Choice) award at the Tatler Design Awards 2021.
A nautical-influenced abode with a soothing ambience
Designed by Designworx Interior Consultant, this Good Class Bungalow exudes a relaxed atmosphere with marine-inspired touches. Home to a family of four and their border collie, the abode was designed in accordance with certain feng shui requirements. Various luxurious accents such as an aquamarine shagreen feature wall and bespoke coffee tables with seashells set within bring the aquatic theme to life with a glamorous flair.
A tropical-inspired home with colourful interiors
Set amid lush foliage, this verdant home features a unique U-shaped structure around the home’s central pool. The architecture of the home was designed by Guz Architects, with Designworx Interior Consultants helming the interiors. Blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces, the design team amalgamated both living spaces and greenery throughout the home.
Acceding to the client’s preference for modern furniture with touches of Asian elements, each room is thoughtfully curated with artworks and furnishings that deliver a colourful and personalised twist.
When it comes to the property market in Singapore, Good Class Bungalows (GCBs) are classified as the most exclusive sector. According to the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), these covetable properties must have a minimum plot size of 1,400 sqm and cannot be built more than two-storeys high. Additionally, GCBs must be situated within one of the special 39 plots gazetted by the URA, which are typically located in prime residential districts.
