Designed by Designworx Interior Consultant, this spacious three-storey penthouse features a contemporary interior, inspired by the homeowner's favourite travel destinations in China and Japan. Greeted by a golden bonsai and hand-painted silkscreen in the living area, the elegant ambience continues throughout the home to create a holiday home that the family enjoys returning to.

The adjacent dining area, a Japanese- inspired timber screen frames the double volume wall, its vertical lines contrasting with the gold and chrome globes of British designer Tom Dixon’s Melt pendants. The timber veneer was specially selected to complement the existing timber panels on the living wall.
The dining table, which seats 10, is custom designed, with a St Laurent marble top. The Madam Ibis pitchers from George Jensen on the dining table echoes the metallic accents on the silk screen.
In the balcony areas outside the living space, the family can lounge on the Ethimo Infinity sofa or have tea in the Marcel Wanders-designed Cyborg Club armchairs. And a Charming pair of Rabbit Sculptures add a whimsical touch to the Outdoor Terrace.
The Master bedroom is a beautifully tactile space. The Angle bed by Italian furniture maker Flou and the Turkish gold and black silk rug take centrestage, with the soft textures of the bed and rug contrasting the sleek, hard lines of the Titano Emperado marble side tables from Natuzzi Italia. Situated beside the master bedroom, the adjoining study features elements of gold, and a cross-leg study table and round rug customised to fit the room.
The Junior master bedroom on the lower level features a Ribbon bed from Italian furniture brand Molteni&C and Bolle Sola hanging lamps from Italian lighting company Gallotti & Radice. The timber frames around the bed echo the timber feature wall at the dining area, creating a cohesive design element across the penthouse. The Study room, which continues the gold accents from the living room, has an additional bed for guests. Even though this room is the smallest, storage cabinets and display shelves are organised to maximise the space.
The glamorous bathroom features a walk-in closet, a freestanding bathtub, a his- and-hers vanity counter and a mirrored wall that conceals a built-in TV.
The project was a tremendous success: “The homeowners can’t wait for their next vacation here - they’re even contemplating spending a longer time in Singapore to enjoy their new holiday home.”
