Abstract: This paper discusses new visions and concepts to enhance the quality of small-space living in Singapore, using two design studies. Based on contextual, cultural and economic conditions, it considers current trends, dweller's attitude towards "Do - It - Yourself (DIY)" furniture and consumer behavior towards small space living. Zooming into the apartment housing in Singapore, more indented walls and higher ceilings are becoming increasingly common. Indented walls arise because supporting and non-supporting structures alternate irregularly in the building construction to optimise space. It is perceived that the trend towards more indented walls will be sharper for HDB housing.
