For this 2,200 sqft. private apartment at the prestigious Quodro Residence at KLCC, S:Lab 10 has taken cue from the owner’s passion for travelling and taste for classical European architecture to create an impressive interior that exudes a sense of old world charm and elegance amidst a modern minimalist setting.
“Our client is a well-heeled owner who has travelled the world over. Inspired by his visits particularly to Europe, he was eager to adopt the awe-inspiring classical details he had seen on his travels,” says S: Lab 10 Director, Jason Sim.
The result: a modern and minimalist apartment interior with flushes of time-old European glamour. Clean but not stark, the design outcome features a myriad of modern finishes paired with tasteful hints of classical detailing, neither surpassing the other but rather each complementing the other.
“There is a clear distinction between adopting classical building elements simplistically and adapting them to current times and appropriate settings,” explains the team. “Thus, we made sure that there was a harmonious composition of forms, along with the application of symmetry and balance to vertical elements such as the walls and columns from the likes of Rococo and Baroque eras to evoke notes of everlasting charm and elegance.”
For the interior palette, clean and serene tones were used. Subtle colours bring out the architectural details without overwhelming the main theme. For the living room, the designers harmonized the interior furnishing with soothing hues while the bedroom features lush elements that blend in with the tranquil environment that they were going for.
