The studio was tasked with housing two programmes – home and office – within a limited footprint, as well as creating a framework to enable its future-proofing.
The result is a new flat that allows easy adaptation for a variety of uses, improving the functionality of the formerly single-use residential unit.
While small in scale, the project is an example of repurposing of a HDB flat, in which more than 80 percent of Singapore's population resides, sustaining it over the course of the building's life.
