A designer's own home is where he can allow his vision to soar unrestrained by a client's directives or budgetary constraints. It's here that he can let his style shine through.
The duplex unit was a generous 3,960 sq ft with two floors and composed of 4+1 bedrooms with attached bathrooms and a family hall. Its 6.5m double volume ceiling in the living area was a highlight as it created the luxury of space in the unit. "Once you enter the unit, there is natural ventilation and plenty of light because there are large glass panels and sliding doors that connect to the balconies in both the living and dining area," explains Yong.
This lent itself to Yong's overall concept for the duplex inspired by Manhattan city living. To further open up the space, the designer removed the wall between the living hall and dining area so that there would now be an impactful 12.5m length of spacious view between the two areas. The dry kitchen wall was also demolished to have an open concept kitchen design.
