This unit at Buangkok Green is a resale HDB apartment with an estimated floor area of 1200 sqft. It features a Industrial style. This property draws its inspiration from old factories and industrial spaces that in recent times have been turned into lofts and other living spaces. For this unit, the primary texture is wood since wood is old-school but has a contemporary urban vibe at the same time. However, to be exact, solid wood such as walnut and oak are used to give it that durable and long-lasting rustic look. Wood is also used since it is the perfect combo with metal elements, as these two are vital elements in Industrial design. Meanwhile, its secondary texture is metal and brick as can be seen on the dining chairs and trio of pendant lamps above it. Metal is also used since it gives a vintage and stripped-off look that cannot be replicated by others types of designs. Just like wood, metal is also durable and hardy so it can withstand wear and tear due to the weather and the passing of time. On the other hand, white is used as its primary color since it is a color of versatility and vintage charm. The secondary color used is a monochromatic palette of greys and iron black, since these are the main colors used in Industrial design.
We would recommend this designer to everyone out there who is into the ultimate industrial design. Based on our observation here, we feel that the designer may be a relatively new team, but they are more than is worth it due to their incredible work ethics. For example, google reviews on the internet have commented on and praised them for being an extremely dedicated designer and team. Despite being the new kid on the block, commenters also added that they know their stuff at the back of their hand and have the required experience for the job. Other than that, we are also pretty impressed with how they designed the overall look of this house. After all, the Industrial look is not an easy design skill or technique to master due to its odd eccentricities here and there. For example, some may like wood while others may prefer metal.
The living room has a stripped-back look due to its simple and minimal form. For instance, there is little furniture and decor around. In addition, these pieces of carpentry are well-positioned so that the widened spaces can give more room for storage and mobility. On top of that, the surrounding ambiance has an edgy and masculine look, as visible in the muted colors typically used in this design, like reds and dark browns. The rustic wooden embellishments give a feeling of individualism to the user's unique personality, while the IKEA slumpy-looking red couch sofas add a vintagey washed-out color.
The living room exposes the imperfections in the room through its Craftstone grey and white exposed brick walls. In line with the aesthetics and form of Industrial design, they help to reveal the natural and original outlook of the material in its barest form, devoid of any enhancement or touching-up. In addition, the dual-toned exposed brick walls are a metaphor for old and abandoned factories converted into urban loft-style living. Nevertheless, like yin and yang, the two contrasting colors clashed together like a crazy science experiment. Space-wise, there is ample space around due to the minimal use of furniture and decor.
The dining hall has an open kitchen concept since the dining table is conveniently situated next to the kitchen. Nevertheless, a mix of wood and metal elements is visible on its Sppedy Decor customized dining table, cabinet, and dual-toned chairs. But most probably, the wooden embellishments in this room are made purely from walnut and oak since these two wood materials are the most durable. On the other hand, the metal elements add a rustic vintage touch similar to an open junkyard sale where old hidden metallic gems are waiting for their rightful owners. The trio of IKEA SKURUP black pendant lights helps to bring some warmth and natural lighting to the raw, stripped-back interior.
The bathroom has a Speedy Decor customized wooden full-display glass cabinet with open shelves. Like salt and pepper, the light wood embellishments of this object intermingle well with the Dulux natural-white surroundings of the walls, seat-on toilet, and washing sink. But due to the space constraints in the bathroom, everything is well-positioned for a better purpose. For example, the furniture and decor are not in random positions, which means they are close to one another. Therefore, the user can move seamlessly from one place to other without constraints. The dark hue of the wooden storage cabinet contrasts with the room's lighter color spectrum.
The bedroom's Speedy Decor customized dual wardrobe is designed in a specific way so that there is plenty of walkway space for the user. Simultaneously, the wardrobe's walkway space is the portal or entrance ground to the queen-sized bed situated at the left end of the room next to the window. Besides looking aesthetically minimal, the dual-linked wardrobe is also practical enough that the user can store all their clothing, fashion accessories, and other essentials. Moreover, the wooden side edges of the furniture match perfectly with the light color of the wooden floor, while the body's dark color contrasts with everything.
As a wrap, we conclude that the designs and theme suit the entire house's surroundings. Due to that, they deserve an award for outstanding design. Moreover, the mix of wood and metal elements will instantly transport you through a time-traveling machine back to the earth 19th to 20th century pre-war days of the Worldwide Industrial Revolution. The wood embellishments are also impeccably crafted and well-designed. For example, you can see that the furniture is aesthetically pleasing and minimal. In line with the norms of Industrial design, you don't see tacky or outlandish designs that could cause a visual eye-sore to others.
Finally, the colors are monochromatic but without being viewed as dull or boring. Other than greys, whites, and black, there are also hues of red but in a more subtle and toned-down version. Last but not least, the design of this unit would not only make a perfect property to stay in but a unique heritage home for years and years to come.
