House Tour: A calming all-white three-room HDB in Hougang

Freelance graphic designer Chia Ching Kai bought this 1975 HDB flat in its original condition and decided to take on the interior design himself. “I was very clear about the design concept, layout and how I wanted it furnished. I also knew exactly how the space should function, both as a home and for work. Having previously collaborated with a reliable contractor on a few smaller renovation projects, I didn’t see the need to involve a third party in this case,” he says. The original walls dividing the two bedrooms and the living room were hacked to create one large space, much like a studio apartment. This is Ching Kai’s idea of “openness”, where there are “no secrets, just airiness and lots of natural light”.
