White Oak is a private home located in Singapore.
It was designed in 2013 by Atelier M + A.
White Oak by Atelier M + A:
“The project is a renovation of a 25 year old condominium unit. The original unit had been planned in an irregular L-shaped configuration with the segregation of all interior spaces by solid walls.
A number of the walls were knocked down to create better visual connection, replaced with custom-designed cabinets carefully placed to subtly define spaces or to create spatial transition between spaces.
The bedroom beside the kitchen was opened up to the living/dining room and now becomes a study space. The open study space together with the semi-open kitchen counter was designed as a communal space for the family. Here the children study while the father works at the L-shaped desk, or while the father takes snack at the kitchen counter, the mother in the kitchen supervises the children at the study or at the living room through the kitchen counter.
The spacious master bedroom allows the bed to be positioned as an island in the room, with the rear of the headboard serving as part of the walk-in wardrobe. While it provides privacy within the bedroom, natural light and air is ensured within the wardrobe space through the top of the headboard cabinet.
The full height wardrobe with curved corners in the children’s room responds to the existing curved exterior wall and softens the light from the window. The simple contrast of white and oak timber cabinets sets the character for the interior space.”
