A collaboration with Topic Studio
“What I believe in is the timelessness of an attitude, the timelessness of style,” said American fashion designer Ralph Lauren. Local firm Topic Studio took this quote to heart for this show apartment project for GuocoLand, by crafting an interior that takes a cue from the fashion legend’s effortlessly elegant aesthetic.
Situated in the Wallich Residence development in Guoco Tower, the tallest building in Singapore, the 2,013sqft apartment demonstrates a striking look that differentiates it from the other show units. “We created a design concept that is unique, attractive, and has a timeless character,” says Darrion Loo, the lead designer on the project.
One of the unit’s most striking features is its skyline views, which are visible throughout the property. The designers capitalised on this asset by orientating the furnishings to face the panoramic views.
In the open-plan living room, the sofa looks out towards the balcony, instead of facing a TV. A bar counter by the window creates yet another spot to enjoy a drink while admiring the sunset; its sculptural look conceals an existing column while creating an unexpected focal point. A neutral scheme connects the dining and living areas, complemented by silver-framed artworks that echo the metallic trimmings on the walls.
