Imagine your office being an extension of your home – a place where facing Monday mornings do not feel so much like a chore; where working late nights do not feel quite as intrusive. Wouldn’t that be nice? After all, since there is no avoiding going to the office, why not make that office your home away from home? Not only will it make heading to work and being at work more comfortable, it will also increase productivity – something that is sure to please your employer.
Think of your office is the same way as you would your work wardrobe; you want it to project a certain image – professional yet personal, falling in line with the corporate culture, yet distinctly you. If you are a lawyer or accountant, the look will be more tailored, to suit the nature of your field. If you are a graphics artist or advertising executive, then your office should reflect the fashionable, more creative side of your field.

While I know some of you love Singapore architecture, this specifically house will make your jaw drop because Aamer Architects created a design that is nothing less than amazing. But like all great things, it’s best to show them than to describe them, so here are some images.
Here’s a brief description from the architects if the curiosity kills you:
Magnificent views towards the city from atop Siglap Hill inspired the design. Master and family room are placed on the third level having the best views.
Living and Dining on the second level, connected with external verandahs / terraces that flow upwards and fold into the roof form with deep overhangs for sufficient shade and channeling the breeze through the whole house.
Two resort style ‘Cabana’ bedrooms are located on the ground level by the pool with a large open/covered terrace for poolside parties. A sculptural metal ‘drum’ anchors the ‘ship’ to the ground and houses the toilet/shower and barbeque pantry.
From compact to cozy, you can transform a small apartment into a home to be proud of.
For most of us, city living means living in a compact space. Turning compact into cozy can make a world of difference to your comfort and can transform your home from a base to a place into which you’d be happy to invite guests and relax.
Whether motivated by a desire to de-clutter your space or to infuse your home with your personal style, these top tips for decorating your compact apartment might just help in the process.
Decluttering is a necessary first step and a ruthless approach is needed.
From bookshelf to wardrobe to kitchen cupboards minimalism should be the guiding principle. Going forward, don’t bring anything new into your home unless you’re prepared to introduce it in substitute for something you’re prepared to give away. Keeping everything in its place will maximise the usable floor space available.
