Through the recommendation of a friend, we visited E+e to discuss the renovation of our apartment. This was our first meet up with any ID. We met with Cedrick and felt comfortable with him so decided we will trust him to achieve our dream home without wasting time looking around for other IDs.
As we were moving from a landed house to an apartment with a much smaller floor area and have a very active granddaughter that likes to run around, our criteria were:
1. To have enough space for storage and yet should not look cluttered.
2. All corners of furniture to be rounded.
3. Easy maintenance.
Cedrick managed to achieve all the above with some very clever designs. He proposed flip-up beds to have a space for my granddaughter to play during the day, a curved partition to join up 2 rooms, and a TV hidden in cabinet that is raised by a remote control when needed (like in a Bond movie). I requested for a small breakfast table and it was executed brilliantly with a nifty flip-up top that acts as a ‘cabinet door’ when not in use. Where possible, Cedrick designed the back of cabinets to act as partitions to maximise use of every possible inch of space.
He is always very responsive to any calls or messages. His attention to detail is impeccable. All carpentry drawings were drawn with precison so there can be no misunderstanding unless the carpenter got it wrong. No changes were too troublesome at the design stage.
The overall design is simple and elegant, resulting in the relative small space being spacious enough. Many of our friends commented that the apartment looks big, even though we have so many cupboards all around the house.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank Cedrick and his team for a job well done!
