Canvas for Creativity

For luxury property developers, interior design presents a challenge. They need to create an appealing space with the required ‘Wow’ factor. Yet it also needs to be neutral enough to appeal to the new owner’s creativity. The developers of this Singapore residence struck the perfect balance.

Number 1, Bishopgate is located in a sought-after neighbourhood in Singapore. It’s surrounded by lush greenery, close to the business district and the embassies. Its developers, Kajima Overseas Asia (KOA), aimed to create a sense of an opulent country house for each of the 31 properties in the condominium, with shared facilities including a gymnasium, lap pool, children’s play pool and clubhouse. The interiors had to be appointed usingthe highest-quality materials and brands in order to meet the expectations of the owners.
Poggenpohl’s range suited the style, image and culture of KOA, a Japanese company, as its finishes and materials are neither loud nor ostentatious. KOA’s in-house design director swiftly established a good working relationship with the appointed architects, builders and Poggenpohl team, and the design evolved smoothly.

The brief for the kitchen specified an open space facing out into the living and dining areas, with both an Asian and a gourmet kitchen for entertaining and interacting with guests.

The brief for the kitchen specified an open space facing out into the living and dining areas, with both an Asian (wet) kitchen and a gourmet kitchen for entertaining and interacting with guests. The kitchens include fridge, wine chiller, steam oven, conventional oven, an induction hob, island hood and dishwasher. A three-zone gas hob is also fitted in the Asian kitchen. KOA chose the +MODO range with two glass drawers integrated beneath the long, L-shaped marble countertop, giving a lighter feeling to what otherwise might have appeared heavy and dominant within the space.
