Town Home Preservation Renovation In Singapore

Renovations of old urban town homes occur everyday all around the world, and many are adopting open space planning with new age contemporary finishes to suit the needs and expectations of todays buyers and renters.  A particular rental residence on 31 Blair Road in Singapore designed by ONG + ONG Architects of New York, has done an exceptional job at remodeling a historic home into a modern masterpiece.  The unorthodox first floor layout opens the house with the Kitchen and dining space right at the entrance.  This was done in light of the fact that most parties center around the food, and this arrangement allows guest to casually mingle with their hosts as they cook.






The dining area leads you to a comfortable living spaces adjoined to an outdoor mini courtyard that connects to another living or entertainment room at the rear.  The staircase is positioned perpendicular to the plan broken in two sections to allow for optimal wall access.  Storage is key in this home as many options are available with built in units throughout the layout.
