A major part of the design is carried out in soft neutral tones, wooden accents, drab white walls as well as the attractive and unique retro artwork, which matches perfectly with owner’s choice of Daikin Smile Series. The warm ambience, spacious layout and delicate attention to detail are all what made this entry an absolute winner. This effortlessly elegant HDB is definitely the perfect example of a beautiful contemporary, stylish and compact look.

But best of all – this simple yet elegant home design is relevant to the context of Singapore whereby limited space is at its best use. The open layout, compact aircon size and plays of colors creates an amazing illusion of great space used. Indeed, the trendy and beautiful Scandinavian home style enhances the given space in a glamorous way.


Testimonial from the lovely homeowner:

DAIKIN is our first-choice air conditioner! Even our ID recommends it. I must say the cooling result is fantastic; our living room is rather huge but Daikin cools it very quickly. And quietly too! I’m impressed by its efficiency compared to other brands I have used before. If you were to ask if I would recommend Daikin to all new home owners? Absolutely!” – by Mr Chang, Golf Professional


Last but not least, this contest is really a huge success. We can’t wait to see more of these in the future!
