5 HDB Maisonettes That Are Everybody’s Dream Home Come True

April 20, 2021
BOOKMARK

These resales homes are rare, but they certainly aren’t the stuff of dreams.

While they’re indeed HDB homes, maisonettes just aren’t like the rest. With an entire extra floor of space, there’s plenty of room that their owners can work with to bring their renovation ideas to life. Say, for instance, building a storeroom on the second floor for extra storage or even having a bedroom beside the kitchen.

But whatever new feature(s) that have been added, one thing is for sure: These 5 renovated HDB maisonettes truly stand out from the norm. So, join us on a mini-tour of these rare local homes!

Conceptualised and brought to life by design firm Ovon Design, this Jurong West maisonette features plenty of natural accents in a tranquil environment that’s appropriately minimalist in design.

In the living room, custom features such as a balcony planter rack and a slatted wood feature wall serve as a way to bring Mother Nature's touch into a contemporary space.

Likewise, balance can be found in the kitchen’s new design, which integrates a semi-open partition/breakfast counter comprised of a half-wall for and a single pane of glass that lets the light in.

2. An airy Choa Chu Kang maisonette where glass is the key

It’s no exaggeration to say that glass is the key to this bright and airy Choa Chu Kang maisonette where every room is anything but moody.

From the confines of a windowless stairway where pristine panes take the place of traditional banisters to the double-volume balcony where extra-tall windows emphasise its height, the integral role that glass plays is all too clear.

That said, glass isn’t the only design feature worth highlighting here: There’s also a guest bedroom right beside the kitchen – a layout arrangement that’s only possible with a home as spacious as a maisonette.

3. A storage-packed Bishan maisonette that doesn’t feel cramped at all

Arguably, the biggest and only downside of having too many storage solutions is a cramped home – but that’s no issue, especially in a spacious one like this Bishan maisonette.

In addition to a wall of matte black kitchen cabinets, there’s also a storage settee right next to the entrance, along with a storeroom built underneath the staircase for good measure.

While useful storage is undeniably the focus here, aesthetics doesn’t take a back seat at all as farmhouse chic elements, including wood accents and panelling, are clearly discernible throughout each and every space.

Overtly luxe, yet subtly minimalist, this Yishun maisonette marries gold and marble accents together with clean lines to create a pleasing home that’s equal parts chic and simple.

The ample spaciousness of a maisonette and the scale of its structures (e.g. windows) helps too, especially with balancing out larger furniture pieces and accessories, such as the living room’s plush sofas and the balcony’s plaid drapes.

Similarly, the bathroom’s marble clad look works because of its innately tall height that keeps the entire space from looking too busy.

It’s probably the only maisonette in Singapore with a dedicated display wall for a sneaker collection, but that’s not the only highlight of this Jurong East home, which was designed by Tab Gallery.

Cement screed flooring, exposed lighting tracks, dark wood accents – the hallmarks of an industrial-style home – are all present here, in addition to a hidden surprise on the second floor: a bathroom concealed behind what appears to be a typical wall of whitewashed brick.
