The walkup apartment at East Coast Road was auctioned and the owner, Pat Law, saw it as an opportunity to transform it into her dream home. Designed by Abigael Tay of interior design firm Obllique, the team successfully remodelled this old 1,033 square feet apartment into a modern industrial living home named, Apartment Law.

The walls of the entrance were left unpainted to maintain an unassuming outlook.
Item: Doormat (Naiise)
The Peg Board Walls And Cement Floorings Are Genius
The partitions of the apartment were broken down, and the floor tiles were removed to make way for the polished cement floor. By utilizing peg boards as walls, you could easily save space and customize shelving of items.

Pat Law transformed this odd-shaped room into a unique looking walk-in wardrobe. It also includes a peg board wall to make it more spacious!
The walk-in bedroom features a low wooden platform bed frame, and a mattress lined with ‘Good Morning towel’ bedsheets. The bed sheets can be bought from G.O.D Hong Kong, and is coming to The Damn Good Shop soon. There is also a window nook bench at the corner of the room.
