Architect and designer Allen Oblena’s 50sqm bi-level condo unit is proof of his passion for design and eye for detail. His self-professed architectural style is modern with clean lines, but when it comes to interiors, he has a penchant for an aesthetic full of detail and soft furnishings.

His condo unit has journeyed with him through different style phases. Currently, it is a masterful blend of his flea market finds, upcycled pieces and distinct DIY designs. While the furniture and décor found in his home come from different places, they all coexist in harmony in Allen’s interesting abode.
