If ever a decade could be defined by its style it is surely the 1970s. Swirling patterned wallpaper to match brown and orange colour schemes and the sunken conversation pit or snug were prominent features in interior design back then.
But for some people it may be time to reconsider swirls and snugs, to view them not so much as outrageous ideas but rather as an acquired taste.
When Roy Teo, creative partner of Kri:eit Associates, refurbished this apartment, he chose to update rather than obliterate all its 1970s features.
"There are some fabulous aspects about this apartment such as its circular shape, which offers 360° views of the city below. This proved to be its most interesting and challenging aspect," he says.
Mirrors in the living room and master bedroom were installed to create the impression of a continuous view, and to enlarge the sense of space.
The apartment's original parquet flooring was retained, with carpet rugs used to define individual zones and to provide warmth.
In the home theatre room, the floor was stained black to match a wall covered in speaker fabric. The wall conceals a storage unit. Next to the plasma screen is a transparent glass display unit, accessible from both the living and home theatre rooms.
