Terrace house in BK2 Kinrara
This double-storey terrace house in BK2 Kinrara was overhauled with a modern facade.
The simple but striking geometric design was done to increase the liveable space and enlarge the compound, while keeping the exterior house design sleek and utilitarian. The bedroom on the second floor was extended over the driveway, with full-height bay windows. And, by removing the front wall and replacing it with a four-panel autogate, it’s now easier to park two cars in the driveway.
Semi-D house in Bukit Segar
This modern exterior design in Bukit Segar, Cheras is based on a simple minimalist style complemented by a touch of nature that forms this beautiful frontage. The side garden path design captures a more earthy vibe to contrast the modern architecture of the house. Overall, it creates a simple, comfortable home design.
Semi-D in Ara Vista
This contemporary semi-rustic inspired home in Ara Damansara carries an elegant contrast between the brown wood grills and the soft grey walls, giving it a polished look. The abundance of natural lighting shining onto the soft coloured walls depicts a cosy warmth. For the interior, the old-school brick wall design provides the home with a unique texture accompanied by the traditional yet modern decor. Together, the finishing look has a suitable homely yet artistic vibe all around.
50 Indah House, Cheras
Black and white have never looked so good together. This double-storey home in Cheras integrates two opposing tones to create a lovely yet sleek contrast which applies the style of modern architectural designs. The black wire mesh gate and balcony rail piece give it a smooth and minimalist view, to accompany the clean white walls and large glass windows. From top to bottom, this house is a stunning modern home.
Terrace House in Petaling Jaya
This home in PJ was given a total makeover inside and out, and now has a modern contemporary home design. The peach colour theme was replaced with a monochromatic palette, accented by black wire mesh auto gate and window panes. The exterior now looks roomy and adequately minimal for taste. This style also helps with the limited space to maximize space.
Bungalow Renovation in Kota Kinabalu
The sharp angles on this modern home gives it a distinct visual appearance. This home’s geometric style architecture is mesmerizing along with the soft brown and white colour palette to complement.

At the frontage, the old steel gate and louvered windows have been replaced, and the driveway was expanded to fit two cars.
Three-story corner house in Kuchai Lama
This expansive triple storey home in Kuchai Lama just underwent major renovations. All windows were enlarged with thick black frames, with the top floor windows given a distinct arch. The balconies were also removed, and turned into proper bedroom extensions to add more space.

The Ramp House in Seri Tanjung Pinang
Simplicity is paired with a combination of form and function for this modern minimalist home in Penang. Spanning a 10,231sqft floorplan across two blocks (front and back block), the designers applied organic textures and colours into its interiors to create the ideal minimalist space for modern comfort and style.
Instead of being linked by stairs and bridges across the courtyard, the front and rear blocks are linked by a series of ramps, which also double as the main feature of the house, with views of the lush courtyard and swimming pool.
