“Majestic” would be an apt description for the home’s expansive, airy living room; its spacious dimensions are further augmented by full-length glass panes that invite the outdoors in.
Its monochromatic interior is the work of Singapore-based firm Architology Interiors, which took inspiration from the owners’ appreciation of marble and other natural stone varieties. “The client loves marble and wanted every room to feature a different variety. Our client was willing to let us lead her on the process of discovering a look that she liked,” says Architology Interiors co-founder Terrence Quah, who helms the firm with fellow co-founder Bu Shu Kun.
The couple, who lives in the 7,200 sq ft property with their three sons, had also requested plentiful storage and display space for the wife’s travel and fashion accessories, including her treasured collection of Louis Vuitton scarves. Other than that, the firm was given free rein in renovating this landed property in Chancery Lane into a luxurious yet functional abode that meets its owner’s needs perfectly.

To create the home of their dreams, the designers embarked on a renovation that encompassed changing everything from the driveway and pool tiles to the gates, fences, and windows, and even the structure’s colour and texture. After planning the orientation and layout of the rooms, the studio turned to the richly patterned marble slabs from Italian brand Antolini as a key source of inspiration.
“Our challenge was to find a way to weave the colours and textures of the different marble varieties seamlessly while bringing out the best characteristics of each stone type,” says Quah.
The design firm ensured that the overall mix of materials, textures and furnishings, such as the timber veneers, metal trimmings, upholstery fabrics, wallcoverings and furniture, would match the marble used in the room for a cohesive look. A variety of materials and colours were presented to the client to “help her discover what really resonated with her”, says Quah.
