Dear Readers, Back in Early 2018, I am in search of a new resale unit and finally confirmed the deal back in March 18. I soon realised that it badly needed a renovation make over as the original owner, lived 40years in the unit, without much upgrade. It was smelly, dirty, old age renovation works and came with all sorts of problems. While trying to find ideas since the actual handover will be in End May 18, i stumbled upon a shop along Tanjong Katong area which provided bathroom fittings and accessories. From there, I got to know Vinc (The Saviour). Well of cos, being cost conscious, I also look around for other renovation firms and collected around 4 quotation and some proposed designs for the unit. Some required design payments which I gladly paid for the services. But things are made easy for me as the selection to engage the best company to work with became very obvious. I shall not reveal names here, but I have paid twice for designs which I dislike and wasted precious time and numerous meetings with those companies. Vinc on the other hand stood out from the competition mainly because: 1) He knows what he is doing 2) Design is not just practical and suits owner preference 3) Swift and Fast response. I cannot remember a time he cannot come out with a solution to a problem 4) Price conscious. He know where to spend, what to spend and what can be done to prevent budget overrun 5) Pricing details. All breakdown are clearly spelt, limitations are discussed and aligned Frankly, he is not the lowest among the possible selections, but gave a more proactive approach in producing good design direction. That is the first step of our engagement Second step after the confirmation with Vinc, then we look at the renovations. The details covered are: 1) Full demolition works 2) all fittings are changed 3) Finishings are changed Technically, everything is new... but no.. he knew what can be salvage, make good and reused. Some items are cleaned, repainted and reinstalled. The whole renovation came with a number challenges but was definitely dealt with professionally. What he has projected before the renovation, it was timely resolved and cleanly done. There is not a moment of hesitation that I have made a bad choice. He even spent time to review all proposed furnitures/appliances to be purchase and make recommendation down to even small fittings (which are not in his quotation) In short, I strongly recommend him for your renovation requirements. He is understanding, focus, and most importantly, get the job done! I extend most sincere gratitude to him and his team for supporting and complete our dream home! Thank you Vinc! JOB WELL DONE!!! Cheers! Best Regards, Kiat

Vinc is the first designer I met, after whom I discussed with another 8 designers. He is very unique, asking about our lifestyle and focused on the functions of each room. Although the quotation was beyond our budget, we decided to take his proposal. He is very experienced and creative, unlike other designers who took the common method, every time when we raised our concern, he could immediately provide options of solutions. We can see the passion from his eyes, and also the profession he possesses. He is also very patient and answered many questions. We are very lucky to get the renovation done before COVID-19, although there is still some small amendments to be done, we have a comfortable place to stay.

Vinc was referred by a friend of mine which had him as his design consultant a while back. Without sharing much just asked me to speck to him. After the first meeting he is definitely gonna be within my top 3 choice. His process is collaborative, he would test me out without me evening knowing. And share his insights after and clearly demonstrates his years or experience. He runs a small studio which he can only take on a limited number of projects at a time which no more than 3 which i like for i know my project will get more attention. He make sure our aesthetic sensibilities are aligned through some small talk which i kind of notice in the end. His willingness is definitely a quality not to be overlook. He is different from other ID that i met or worked with. He doesn't hit and run. To quickly complete a project and move on is not his style. Adjusting his pace to match ours makes it a breeze. Although he has been in the industry for more than 10yrs he is still very updated. Research i did he was able to comprehend. If it wasn't for his service and workmanship i wouldn't be writing this review to give him more clients to choose. I will still choose to work with him on my next reno because i know he is constantly adding value. He is on his way to architecture. Who knows he might be one the next time i engage him.

After initial discussions, we decided to go with Lifestyle+ for our renovation and started collaborating with Vinc and his team on our home. We wanted to do up a complete interior overhaul to our bungalow as it was pretty old. My wife and I wanted a modern Scandinavian theme that was simple and elegant. However, Vinc and his team wowed us with their design concept and approach, looking into our lifestyle and creating unique experience instead of focusing on a theme. Through their well-presented proposal, suffice to say, Lifestyle+ delivered and we are happy with the entire process and results. Here are the some of the areas that we would like to especially commend them on: 1) The Design process and Visuals We had several rounds of meeting where Vinc and his team took us through his design process. They were attentive to our requirements and provided good suggestions and advice to us, striking a balance on aesthetics, practicality, while creating a unique experience based on our lifestyle and preferences. They were able to easily communicate with us their ideas. Both the 2d and 3d drawings provided were well done up and realistic, allowing us to better understand the design and technical specifications. 2) Project Supervision and Coordination Vinc did a fantastic job onsite working with his various contractors, and even coordinated with some external vendors that we engaged. He was thorough and detailed, and kept us updated on the renovation progress daily. He was also quick to respond to our concerns and would do his best to resolve any issues we encountered. His attitude, dedication and attention to detail really stood out. 3) Genuine and Transparency Through the journey from the start to handover, we felt really comfortable having to work with Vinc and his team. They were able to guide us through the process and created a wonderful experience for us, not just in our home, but on our interactions as well. They were all genuine, sincere and passionate about their work, making sure that the entire process was honest and transparent. Overall, we are pleased with our experience with Lifestyle+ Interior.
