A Family-Friendly Terrace House By Couple Abode

Terrace House Couple Abode

Couple Abode designs a 5 storey family-purposed terrace house with a strong emphasis on wood for different work and play scenarios in Singapore.

The homeowners of this terrace house designed by Couple Abode like a clean aesthetic and this is evident in the floor-to-ceiling wall panel that faces the dining table. An array of brass-like pendant lights hang above the dining table, bringing light to the space while emphasising the height of the room. Together with the floor-to-ceiling dark wood feature wall, this communal area is reminiscent of a luxuriously modern Balinese villa. 

The designers at Couple Abode respected the family’s love for dark wood and wanted to integrate it into the interior design in practical ways. They achieved this by incorporating dark Balau wood-look laminates in the living area. The strips of wood add warmth and depth to the home and stand out especially well against the large expanses of white walls. The result is a feature that dramatises the verticality of the home.

The dark wood and its sensuous grains are some of the materials that make up the kitchen cabinet. In this open-concept kitchen, the countertop doubles as a serving table and can also work as a food preparation area. The monochromatic colour scheme continues here, visually linking the kitchen to the rest of the home.
