With its enviable views of the city, its own swimming pool, and generously-sized spaces, this penthouse already had the makings of a dream home.
But when husband-and-wife team Kelvin and Karen Gan of KGID were given free reign by the apartment’s owners to transform the space into a warm, inviting home, they took the chance to inject a refreshing twist of their signature Art Deco style to the interiors. “After seeing our previous works, the owners left the design and furniture selection to us,” explains Kelvin.
The designers placed emphasis on a mix of energetic shapes and refined details to create an elegant, inviting environment. One of the apartment’s star features is its double-volume living and dining room, a striking space filled with natural light. Flanked by a dramatic six-metre-high ceiling wall cabinet featuring eclectic objets d’art, books and artworks, the space confidently merges plush living with a sense of cultural refinement.
