Martin 38 II
Martin 38 II type . residential place . Singapore area . 1130 SQFT year . 2018

Inspired by renowned architect Kerry Hill's original austere industrial aestheticism, this 1,130 SQFT studio apartment fuses the beauty of raw concrete and natural timbre, juxtaposing it against a backdrop of polished glass, refined fixtures and contemporary furniture.


Clean lines and moving walls define a fluid, ever-changing space, permitting the freedom of unbounded possibilities.


Tinted glass changes opacity along with the condition of the natural light that fills the apartment. In the day, the tinted glass acts as a reflective surface that, when coupled with mirrors, creates an infinity effect that amplifies the spatial quality. Come nightfall, the interior lights up, revealing the apartment in its entirety.


A sense of subtle visual interest changes the perfection of an otherwise harsh, industrial interior.

"Simplicity, carried to an extreme, becomes elegance." John Franklin
