House tours: A raw, industrial, and absolutely stylish house

This sleek two-and-a-half storey terrace house of 3,010sqf build up is home to a couple in their twenties, who had requested an easy-to-clean home. The end result? An ultra-chic picture of industrial minimalism.

Daphne Chua and her partner wanted an industrial-style for their house, as it was 'easy to clean', but the raw elements and 'authentic' feel which their designer Ed Ong of Dwel incorporated in the design, soon grew on them. The renovation, including furnishings, cost RM1,500,500.

"I wanted the industrial style to come through as authentically as possible," shares Ed, who used construction beams or metal l-beams at the front and back of the ground floor of the home. He also clad the walls on the first floor as well as the stairwell and staircase, in concrede screed.

The original glass panel at the front of the house was kept to open up the space. The solid wood surfaces of the dining table and bench from Knocknock add a touch of warmth. Cushion and black and white pots, all from Make Room.
