Interior Photography: Beautiful Industrial/Minimalism themed HDB in Chinatown

Located in the heart of chinatown, this newly renovated 3 rooms HDB unit ooze beauty & simplicity.

Definitely one of my personal favourite of the year.

This modern minimalism/industrial with a touch of rustic styled home is not the kind of normal 3-rooms HDB that you see everywhere else in Singapore.

Right from the entrance, you will know this is not your typical 3-room HDB unit, the metal gate was hacked away, leaving just the wooden door, like what you would find in condo units, we simply love the idea of hanging the unit numbers on the top, it is creative and visually appealing. On the right of the photo, there is the shoes cabinet, which other than the storage space provided, acts as a partition and ensure that your privacy space will not be invaded.

3 rooms HDB in the older days was built in a very simple way, and privacy was one of its biggest flaws, one whole stretch of corridor and every unit except the corner unit, will have their living room and one of the bedroom facing the corridor, people walking past can see very clearly what is going on. Most HDB nowadays only has the main door facing the corridor which make more sense.

As you walk pass the partition into the unit, the first thing you will realise is the space, if you have seen other 3 room HDB unit. The wall in between the kitchen and living room has been hacked away and the dining table is able to fit in nicely in the middle.
