M3 came highly recommended by 2 friends who both engaged designer Raeve. Unfortunately, she had to leave the country and Haikel (from my understanding, he is one of the bosses) took over my project. My experience seems to be quite different from that of my friends’. Project management was haphazard at best and the completion date was constantly delayed due to the issues below.. Haikel oversaw the kitchen countertop installation, which came with a complete crack in a portion of the countertop. This was not pointed out until I noticed it. This crack also looked like it had been patched up. It was later agreed that the broken countertop would be replaced. However, the replacement countertop was fabricated with a 1.1cm gap from from the edge of the countertop to the wall. I am unsure if this would have been installed had I not been present. After rejecting this piece, the workers proceeded to remove the countertop and chipped another slab of countertop. Due to the constant movement of the countertop, the backsplash was damaged, and I insisted that the damaged portion be replaced (especially since we had a lot of spare tiles leftover). However, the broken portion of the backsplash was merely stuck back on with silicon. This did not seem right, as the broken piece could be removed very easily. I had to demand for a proper replacement, which was eventually done. My unit was undergoing hdb’s HIP and it was made clear to Haikel that the toilets would have to pass HIP’s water test. One of the toilets failed the water test 3 times and had to undergo 3 rounds of rectification before passing on the 4th test. Without the requirement for the HIP test, I would not have known that the toilet had inadequate waterproofing. Haikel also repeatedly confirmed that a lintol had been installed above the door frame. The purpose of a lintol is to bear the weight of the wall above the door frame. Without it, the door frame may sag or collapse in the long run. We asked for a small portion wall to be hacked to prove the existence of the lintol. As it was not there, a bigger section of the wall had to be hacked to reinstate the lintol that was supposed to have been installed initially. There was a choke in one of my toilet pipes and I was first notified of the choke by the plumber (my uncle) when he first visited the site after hacking/ tiling/ plastering works. Haikel claimed that the choke is HDB’s responsibility, however a joint inspection conducted by HDB determined that this choke was due to earlier renovation works.

We engaged M3 Studio to do up our reno for our old HDb flat and they provided many good solutions and were very patient with us on the time we took to make our choices. With good planning the renovation went on without much trouble and we achieved the feel and look that we desired. Overall a great job done. Thank you very much.

Myself and husband engaged M3 Studio through our ID Shafiq. We gave him a view of our ideas and he was able to transform our ideas into amazing sketches! We received our keys admist Covid-19 and we were actually bracing ourself for all the delays that were upcoming in our reno works for our first home. Shafiq was very detailed and gave us a schedule to keep us in track of our reno progress. He was very patient and was there throughout all our visits from tile selection to bathroom accessories giving us advices on what's best based on our budget. He was very open and was not judgmental at all based on our strict budget. Overall, admist Covid 19 delay, we were able to completely move in in less than 6 months! We were impressed with their works and especially his effort in making sure everything was in order accordingly. Every design was carefully thought of ensuring maximum quality.

Happy and satisfied

Reviewed by Khalid Fauzi・Submitted 19 Feb 2021・Project completed Jun 2020・Designer Iman

We found M3 Studio on Qanvast and it was our first time hearing about them. Iman was our designer and she was patient in answering our queries before we signed with them. It was a pretty smooth renovation process and we are happy with how our entire house turned out! Even though we were located in Jurong, she would still make time to come down to site if there were any hiccups or questions that need to be attended to. On top of that, she made sure we had a comfortable relationship as client and designer.
