The owners love the look of Asian temples, and it is this aesthetic that guided their decorating choices. The home is decorated with statues of Buddha, and the owners eschewed small abubot, which they felt caused clutter.
Though they would love to move into a much bigger house, the owners are content and proud of their design and don't think they'll grow tired of adoring Asian style. This modest two-storey house is a testament to the fact that a heftier budget and sprawling space don't guarantee an enthralling residence. In the end, personal style and passion to interpret it make a surefire formula for weaving a living space that amazes visitors and has a genuine story to tell.
