Converting a Duplex into a Dual Key Apartment with Dwellaholic

Are you looking for a living space with more privacy and flexibility? A duplex apartment with two floors connected by a staircase may sound cool, but what if you want to rent out one of the floors or have a separate space for your parents or grown-up kids? That’s where a dual key apartment comes in handy. It’s an apartment that can be divided into two self-contained units with separate entrances. In this case study, we’ll take a look at how Dwellaholic, an interior design firm based in Singapore, converted a duplex apartment in the Kallang area into a stunning dual key apartment.

The Challenge. The owner of Wang Lodge had a duplex apartment and wanted to convert it into a dual key apartment to make the most of his property. However, this task required a lot of planning, design, and renovation work, including changing the plumbing and electrical points to ensure both units have their own water and power supply.

The Solution. The owner hired Dwellaholic, an interior design firm with expertise in creating dual key apartments, to take on the challenge. Dwellaholic started by creating a separate entrance at each level of the duplex and adding a door at the top of the staircase to separate the two units. They then redesigned the layout of each unit to make them more spacious and functional.

Design and Style. The lower unit had two bedrooms, a living room, a dining area, a kitchen, and a bathroom. Dwellaholic gave it a modern and minimalist look with white walls, wooden floors, and sleek furniture. They also added pops of color and texture with plants, cushions, and artworks.

The upper unit had one bedroom, a living room, a dining area, a kitchenette, and a bathroom. Dwellaholic gave it a cozy and rustic look with brick walls, wooden beams, and vintage furniture. They also added warmth and charm with rugs, lamps, and paintings.

The Outcome. The result was a beautiful dual key apartment with two distinct styles and personalities. The owner was impressed by how Dwellaholic was able to convert his duplex into a dual key apartment with minimal hassle and disruption. He now has more options and flexibility with his property and can enjoy living in it or renting it out as he wishes.
