Shrewsbury Road - 3 Bedroom Apartment
Atelier Design Studio was approached to transform this upper-level landed residential unit. Atelier used its innovative know-how to give this unit a whole new look.
Atelier Design Studio works in close consultation with its clients to achieve a win-win situation for themselves and their clients.
A cabinet has been installed below the window, giving additional storage.
Cabinets and sliding windows line one side of the front balcony. Notice the last cabinet sports a a glass window that showcases the knick-knacks within. Window panels have been coated with solar control window film, reducing the temperature by 4 degrees. An awning has been installed, containing composite roof panel.
The mesh has been removed, and the wall covers the top fully. Airconditioning has been installed. The bed has been changed to give a cosy feel. Wall-to-wall cabinets have been installed while the traditional cupboard has been retained for sentimental reasons.
The squat toilet has been replaced with a modern toilet bowl. For safety, a specially-customised handlebar cum toilet rool holder has been installed. A housekeeping holder helps organise mops and other tools. The wall is clad with homogenous tiles to provide a homely yet luxurious feel.
The totally-revamped living room. Atelier retained the original layout of the unit, allowing the owners to watch TV from a brand new sofa from their comfortable position. A cabinet with a sliding door has been installed, with diffused light emanating from behind. The mesh has been removed, while the fan has been retained and painted. The lights have been lowered. The floor was giving a coating of self-levelling screen, before being laid with vinyl flooring. This Australian product is rubber with a thin layer of laminate, and covered in natural wood grain. Is is also elderly-friendly!!
The revamped kitchen. A new window frame and a new cabinet, made of waterproofing board, of just the right height have been installed. The old concrete chimney has been removed and replaced by a stainless steel one. The table is made of quartz and can last up to 30 years. The good-quality rack from Song Chun ensures condiments are within easy reach of the chef. The glass backing behind the stove makes it easy to wipe grease, while the hob and hood were bought with the help of Jim, who went shopping with the owner. The storage cabinet stores pail and other miscellaneous items while behind that, we see a new yard door. Atelier has installed a pulley-style laundry rack to keep laundry neat.
The cast-iron pipe has been removed and replaced by a stainless steel one. The old and floor tiles have been hacked, and in their place is a slip/anti-slip, quick-dry flooring. The window and light bulb have been changed. The shower incorporates a water pump which gives more pressure and ensures a better bath. The shampoo bay is made of quartz, which lasts 30 years.

Atelier removed the wooden gate and the chrome and timber handlebars. In their place is a stairlift and a stainless steel handlebar.
