After living in four different places in four years, former Real Living creative director Gwyn Guanzon moved into a one-bedroom unit in 2010. Since the 132sqm unit is in an old building, Gwyn wanted to keep the vintage look and feel, while staying true to his own design philosophy.

In line with this idea, Gwyn decided to retain the worn wood parquet floors in all their raw, unvarnished glory. However, he decided to work on the kitchen, extend the bedroom, and add another bathroom. After a four-month renovation, the space has a traditional-meets-modern appeal complemented by Gwyn's impressive collection of elegant yet exotic pieces.
