10 Design Firms That Create Contemporary Homes in Singapore
#TeamContemporaryHomes, where you at?
A contemporary and a modern home is not one and the same. The modern concept borrows from a time that has already passed (i.e. styles from the 1950s and 1960s) while contemporary design is all about the present – think sleek and on-trend finishes.

Because contemporary interiors follow what’s in vogue, they are highly sought after in Singapore. That being said, we’ve done the legwork for you and put together a list of interior firms that specialise in creating these fashionable spaces.
1. Salt Studio
Project: Northshore Drive | Salt Studio
Salt Studio is a boutique interior design firm that prides themselves on doing things differently, and that translates into the work they’ve put out.
Project: Ang Mo Kio | Salt Studio
Glance through their portfolio, and you can immediately tell how unique their projects are. From quirky, colourful homes to chic, sophisticated spaces, each home has been designed to cater to their homeowners’ unique lifestyle – something that you, a potential client, can expect as well.

2. Zenith Arc
Project: Clementi Avenue 3 | Zenith Arc
Simple and clean, yet chic and visually stunning – those are the defining characteristics for every home renovated by Zenith Arc.

But despite these overarching traits, each home is especially tailored to their clients’ needs, which they do by playing around with different colours, materials, and layouts.
3. The Local INN.terior
Project: Alkaff | The Local Inn.terior
The Local INN.terior is one firm you can readily trust to create the contemporary home of your dreams.
Their main motivation is to create personalised spaces that are functional, yet still aesthetically-pleasing, which is evident from their portfolio. No two projects look the same – you can find contemporary homes with an industrial twist, modern spin, and more!
4. D5 Studio Image
Project: The Stellar | D5 Studio Image
If you’re looking for a one-stop-shop design firm, one good choice is D5 Studio Image. There, they handle everything from renovations to furnishings, helping you achieve your dream home right down to the tiniest detail.

5. Aart Boxx Interior
Established in 2014, Aart Boxx Interior has already accumulated a number of notable projects under their belt including this picturesque Executive Apartment in Bukit Merah.
Project: Bukit Merah | Aart Boxx Interior
The secret to their success? Striking a balance between the zanier parts of a home with enduring applications, creating spaces that are both timeless and chic. In fact, this approach is so effective that it manages to elevate even a humble Tampines North Drive BTO and turn it into a home that exudes sophistication.
6. Third Avenue Studio
This boutique interior design studio ups the ante by playing around with symmetry to create visually arresting spaces.
Project: Floraview | Third Avenue Studio
From geometric shapes to fancy mouldings and trimmings, Third Avenue Studio builds sophisticated homes that’s well-crafted and fully functional, filled to the brim with wickedly fashionable storage solutions like the ones found in these spaces!
Adding character to your home is no easy feat but HOFT makes it entirely possible. Each one of their projects has a distinct quality about them that sets them apart from other contemporary homes.
Project: Maplewoods | HOFT
Project: Sumang Lane | HOFT
From the warm and inviting condo at Maplewoods (with a projector reminscent of that in a movie theatre) to the cool and chic BTO at Sumang Lane, the team at HOFT displays artistic adaptability and unique perspective, breaking out of the cookie-cutter.
Project: Bidadari Park Drive | HOFT
8. The Orange Cube
Four walls and a door are the basic configuration that every home comes in, but as a team of out-of-the-box thinkers (and despite the ‘squarish’-sounding name), The Orange Cube has built a huge portfolio that breaks out of the mould.
Project: Neptune Court | The Orange Cube
Project: Muswell Hill | The Orange Cube
Over the years, the team has tried to mix things up by juxtaposing different shapes, styles and even trying their hands at incorporating large prints. As such, their projects are all varied with each home bearing their own distinctive traits like the glossy look in the Parc Emily apartment or organic appearance of the Neptune Court condominium.
9. Neu Konceptz
The homes that Neu Konceptz build all have the hallmarks of timeless dwellings: classic neutrals and subtle detailing. But that’s where the similarities end as each of these abodes are specially tailored to suit the needs and preferences of their owners.
Project: The Interlace | Neu Konceptz
From a 30-year-old HDB turned personal sanctuary to a classy home with an elegant bar counter, these handsome homes certainly convey uniqueness as well as a decidedly contemporary appearance.
Project: Jalan Rumah Tinggi | Neu Konceptz
Project: Compassvale Walk | Neu Konceptz
Project: Tampines Avenue 12 | Weiken.com
Contemporary design may be all about current trends, but the people from Weiken.com are somehow able to put a timeless spin on all of their projects.
Project: Woodlands Avenue 1 | Weiken.com
From curved features to cabinets with fluted panels, they’re game to experiment with anything to bring your dream home to life, making them a versatile firm that are more than capable to adapt to the times.
