Corals

Corals

Designer: CK Low

Property Type: Condo

Style: Minimalist

The duplex apartment in the Daniel Libeskind-designed Corals at Keppel Bay already had a good structure: a six-metre-high living and dining space fronts a panoramic sea view and the verdant island of Sentosa beyond, edged by utility spaces and five bedrooms. A staircase leads up to a family room and open terrace. As a holiday home for the client, the space is needed to encourage relaxation.

Beige, white, dark chocolate and charcoal tones in the furnishings, fittings and surfaces provide a visually comfortable foil for modern furniture from brands like Walter Knoll and Flexform. 

 

Curves — commonly used in nautical design — are found in elements like the half-rounded, solid oak strips wrapping the dry kitchen counter sides and master bedroom headboard, as well as in furniture forms.

 

The original glass staircase with stainless steel handrails was replaced with an opaque oak timber railing, offering more tactility and comfort to the touch.

 

To meet the client’s desire for a more spacious lift lobby and natural lighting in the entrance, the designers replaced a swing door and trellis with tinted Valeria sliding doors from Rimadesio that allow light to segue through. Come evening, this space becomes a light-filled portal.
