We are going to take a look at the shophouse design which has been renovated by CHANG Architects. This house was used to be a bookstore. The old owner buys the shop again and wants to turn it into private residents. This Lucky Shophouse is located in Joo Chiat, a trading area in Singapore. The nostalgic feeling is delivered through the house’s front gate. However, upon entering the house, you will directly have a totally different impression as it employs modern design.
The front part of this house is not renovated. The shophouse design Singapore has several carving surrounding the doors and windows. Its wall is covered by concrete wall which looks similar to the other house in its surroundings. Upon entering the house, the residents would directly be greeted by a wooden table surrounded by wooden bench and marble stools. This hallway employs unpainted brick wall and wooden room divider. To cover the floor, the architect decides to employ marble flooring.
Moving on to the other part of the house, we can see that the kitchen has a very luxurious design. It even looks like a Chinese restaurant setting with a long dining table in the middle of the room. On top of the dining table, there are two small desk lamps and a decorative plants. The kitchen cabinet and furniture is totally made out of wood. This part of the house is enlightened by hanging lamps located on the second floor’s wall.
The house also has a modern art gallery. There are many paintings which remind the residents with the old scenery of Joo Chiat when they were very little. This picture is hung on the wall to sustain the traditional impression. In the middle of the art gallery, there is a long bench with exceptional curve. This shophouse interior design Singapore presents nostalgic feeling towards the owners.
