House tour: A bachelor’s personal open, airy domain

Freelance graphic designer Chia Ching Kai bought this 1975 flag in its original condition and decided to take on the interior design himself. “I was very clear about the design concept, layout, and how I wanted it furnished. I also knew exactly how the space should function, both as a home as well as for work. Having previously collaborated with a reliable contractor on a few smaller renovation projects, I didn’t see the need to involve a third party in this case,” he says.

These Hans J. Wegner chairs are favoured by homeowner Chia Ching Kai for their ergonomic design and comfort.
