House tour: A multi-storey townhouse with a breezy resort vibe

Smart, sleek retouches paved the way for a breeze resort vibe in this multi-storey townhouse.

This four-storey town house stands at 2,600 sqf, and is home to a couple with their two young daughters. When a home is big on space, there’s a tendency to pile on the design elements, furniture, and accessories. But not for the homeowner of this five-bedroom townhouse, who even did away with the television set in the living room. “The owners rarely watch TV shows and they do not want a console or feature wall to take up space,” says Terence Neo, design director of EightyTwo. “Their style is understated and they don’t want anything too laud, gaudy, or bulky-looking.”

The living area opens onto the verandah, creating a seamless space that is airy and inviting.
