Gorgeous Loft Apartment Ideas For Your Sky Terrace @ Dawson BTO FlatInterior Design & Decor
4 minutes read
The introduction of SkyTerrace@Dawson sees HDB doing away with archetypal flat layouts. This new Build-To-Order (BTO) flat features studio apartments, four-room and five-room flats, and is the first estate by the HDB to offer Flexi-layout and Multi-generational living areas.
It is interesting to see that the HDB takes the feedback of people into consideration, which has resulted in its column and beam free design, making it easy for the homeowners to renovate their space according to their specifications. It even has a separate chute for recyclable items!
In Singapore, these loft-style apartments are hard to come by, usually only done by condominiums. The Sky Terrace@Dawson sets the precedence for loft-style apartments and this presents a new way of looking at public housing in Singapore.
Different from the typical HDB flats, this floor plan makes home designing even more exciting, so we bring you creative ideas on how to utilise it!
Ideas For Loft Apartments
Floor to ceiling windows bring light into any room
When we think of loft apartments, the first image that comes to mind is the airy residences of New York with high ceilings and floor to ceiling windows that allow light to enter. These apartments can be adapted to look modern, classy or even industrial, depending on how the owners choose to dress it up.

We seek inspirations from a beautiful apartment by a member of our t-blog, MeRfMeRf. The kitchen, though simply done, is elegant and would be a perfect fit for any theme.
Another idea would be to dress up the loft in a cosy and homely manner.
The usage of wood, fabrics as well as the exposed beams in this house creates an inviting atmosphere, where you could practically just sink into the sofa and rest your worries away.
On the other hand, one could also look to the Middle East for inspiration and incorporate it into their decor. The curtains on the loft itself look whimsical, almost playful, where we can imagine a princess opening the windows and looking out.
Instead of a chandelier, these Moroccan-inspired lamps could be hung from the ceiling and also put on the floor. This is a unique look that is easily pulled off by playing around with mainly primary colours, giving it a “clean” vibe that is easy on the eyes.
With such high ceilings, the lighting options are endless. Chandeliers could be hung from the ceiling to create a focal point in the room, to make the house look magnificent.
One could choose from a plethora of chandeliers or for a much simpler (and easier to clean) idea would be these hanging bulbs. It could be seen as a modern take on the old-fashioned favourite chandelier and is a refreshing change.
Another way of designing a loft apartment is by incorporating a rustic theme into the decor of the area. An example would be this loft, where the exposed bricks and wooden carpentry infuses the space with charm and warmth.
All in all, the loft apartments provides the homeowners more space to play around and also is a departure from the traditional flat layouts, making it a refreshing change from the ‘shoebox’ flats that we are used to, signaling an exciting change for Singapore’s public housing.
