House tour: This wushu master’s home, made beautiful by natural materials

The home of celebrity, sportsman, and fitness icon Vincent Ng embraces his values, beliefs, and the people he holds dear.

For World Wushu Champion and three-time SEA Games gold medallist Vincent Ng, wushu is an expression of body movement through coordination and balance. “There is an emphasis on lines, flexibility, physical and mental strength, and it is rooted in values and tradition,” he says. Perhaps stemming from his martial arts background, Vincent’s approach towards design is a balance between tradition and the avant-garde to achieve something modern and homely.

The founder of wushu school Wufang Singapore is well-known not just in the sports arena. He is also a familiar face on local television, playing Sun Wukong in The Legend of the Eight Immortals and police officer Ricky Soh in Heartlanders. In 2017, he gave up his bachelor pad located in The Residences at W Singapore Sentosa Cove and purchased this 3,850sqf landed home, in order to live with his parents, be near his two sisters, and spend more time with the extended family. That same year, Vincent found his soul mate and they tied the knot.

He is particular about alignment, order, and organisation, both in wushu as well as his home, and he found an interior designer who is equally, if not more scrupulous about such details. OSC By Norman Yeo came highly recommended by Vincent’s close friend, veteran Singaporean model Celia Teh. Norman’s star-studded clientele includes high net worth individuals and international and local celebrities such as Fann Wong, David Gan, and Ann Kok who appreciate his bespoke and personalised service.
