8 Super Chio Loft Apartments In Singapore That Are Serious House Goals

8 August 2022 | BY

Here are 8 pretty loft apartments in Singapore for your home inspiration.

Space is a luxury in Singapore, as we all can attest to, especially to the 90% of us who are HDB and condo dwellers. This has made many of us experts in creating extra space in our homes, be it through using double-duty furniture, installing shelves on the walls or, better still, by building a whole new floor in the ceiling – enter loft apartments.

Typically found in units with high ceilings or those located on the top floor, loft apartments are a rather ingenious type of housing – not only do they cleverly make use of vertical space for more storage, such a design allows more natural light to enter the house, creating a sense of grandiosity which goes well with any decor style in place.

With that, here are 8 super chio loft apartments in Singapore that’ll give you the right inspo to kickstart your NYC penthouse living dreams.

1. Flo Residence – DIY loft in Punggol condo for a hidden retreat

Although their unit was just an ordinary one, save for the high ceiling, that didn’t stop the owners from maximising its potential by building a loft by themselves in their condo at Flo Residence

Indeed, the end result was 100% worth it, giving birth to a lovely home where Art Deco, mid-modern and industrial decor elements blend together nicely. With the addition of a quaint, vintage spiral staircase, the owners were able to build a retreat corner that serves as the perfect hideout whenever they’re in the mood for some alone time.

2. [email protected] – Parisian-inspired monochrome

There’s something timeless about monochrome, even more so when a fresh dose of Parisian flavour is added, giving a luxurious facelift to the space as what is done in this 5-room HDB in [email protected].

Boujee is an understatement –  there’s even a fancy walk-in wardrobe built in the master bedroom space.

One of the owners spent her college days in NYC, so the couple has done quite a fair bit of travelling there, in turn bringing back slices of the Big Apple into their home. These include pottery pieces from Jonathan Adler; even their guest bathroom is meant to emulate The Ludlow Hotel located in Manhattan’s Lower East Side neighbourhood.

The loft ended up being converted into a master bedroom, and rightfully so – imagine waking up to a view of the beautiful chandelier in front of you, which the owners say gives them a feeling like their “heads are up in the clouds”.

3. The Trilinq – Scandi-chic with fun wooden textures

There’s a reason why Scandinavians, or pretty much everyone, loves wood. The colour gives it a natural look which makes it very fun to experiment with by creating different geometrical designs and visual textures, like in this condo in The Trilinq.

The home features an open concept look, combining the dining and living areas, while using marble flooring and ceilings fixed with curved fittings to make the space look bigger. The study area takes up the loft, which is filled with knick-knacks placed atop cubed bookshelves, giving a whiff of boho-chic to the space.

4. Espada @ St Thomas Walk – All-black bachelor pad

The stairs double up as a shelf for the owner to display his liquor collection, amongst other collectibles.

To that guy friend we all have who only dresses in black: we get you. It’s bold, sophisticated, and there’s a whole lot of style you can evoke despite it being the only main colour in the palette. In interior design, one could say that the epitome of the all-black aesthetic would be this studio loft in Espada @ St Thomas Walk condo.

Black, plus several shades between, are used for most of the furniture including the pole dancing podium, save for the floors and ceilings for contrast. Tempered glass is also used, acting as a mirror to subtly reflect light, which makes the space appear to be bigger.

5. Craig Place – Vintage decor with antique Kopitiam furniture

Cabinets are made to be transparent so that the vintage crockery can be seen on display.

Retro is the name of the game these days, and what better way to enjoy it than to turn home into an old-school time capsule, as what the owners of this Craig Place condo did to their loft.

Since the walls were a good 7m high, they built not only one, but 2 mezzanine levels, where the top one is meant as a nifty storage space. Thick glass was used as the mezzanine flooring, which not only allows natural light to enter the living area, but also makes the home reminiscent of old shophouses.

6. The Calrose – Eclectic loft with plenty of storage

Another hot decor trend these days would be modern eclectic, with all its bold colours and quaint collectibles that create the charm in the space. One example is this condo unit at The Calrose, which has a feature wall with storage shelves arranged in an eclectic manner, creating a fun and jazzy feel in the living area.

A big bonus in this unit would be that it comes with a balcony space, which has turned into quite the chill spot with colourful paintings and colourful bamboo chairs. Upstairs, you’ll see the master bedroom, which has a wardrobe made with a bamboo strip-looking door, giving it a gush of Japanese zen that’s seen in temples and ryokans.

7. Punggol Sapphire – Rare HDB loft with white-industrial decor

Although Punggol has been a hothouse for new BTO projects these past few years, lofts remained quite the rarity, making this Punggol Sapphire unit one to take note of.

The living room walls have a silver-cemented look which blends sweetly with the other white faces; pop a chandelier onto the ceiling and the entire look gives a “landed house” vibe to the place.

While the renovation was simple, the kitchen still looks clean with the white and shiny laminates used on the countertops and cabinets. You could say that the addition of the glass door in the space makes for a good service yard idea, as it clearly demarcates the yard from the kitchen, while still allowing light to enter and brighten up the space.

8. Thomson V – Hygge-inspired with whimsical knick-knacks

While our parents have good reason for nagging us to declutter our rooms, that isn’t to say it should be stripped bare just for essentials. 

After all, the Danish hygge philosophy stands true – all the little soft toys and travel knick-knacks, or anything that sparks joy, are what turn a house into a comfy and cosy home, as what we see in this whimsical Thomson V condo.

A crossover between vintage and industrial styles, this loft apartment somewhat reminds you of the cute indie stores dotted along Haji Lane. The mezzanine is occupied by a display library with books and vintage paraphernalia, before leading to the master bedroom upstairs.
