Getting a house is a huge commitment. But building a home is even a bigger commitment. As a first time owner, we were everlost - which ID firm, which ID, which theme etc etc and the list goes on.. we met more than my fingers can count, we were close to giving up finding 'The One' to help us conceptualize our dream home - we wanted more than 1 theme in the house - we are a little crazy like this. Until we chanced upon Royston's Industrial Concept for the Joo Chiat Road, it was love at first sight. We thought to give it one last try. All we can say is - We are so glad we did!
We clicked almost immediately, and our ideal themes within a house was as though both Royston and Cher could read our minds and understood we were building a personality home instead of building a typical house. And to them, having more than a theme home was more of a looking forward project than a challenge or a chore like how other ID portrays to us. It was such a delight conceptualizing the home with Royston and Cher. We would say, we arent the easiest house to conceptualise. They made things effortless, and even give us better ideas / finding things out of norm research. We were really impressed and we were so sold by some of their ideas despite being their first time trying it out in our house. That's a whole new level of trust. We love how easy it was to connect with both of them. And they were very prompt in resolving any issues, and they made entrusting them on our house so carefree. We love the craftman work of Chua and Jacky as well, really friendly, professional in products, very knowledgeable and helpful too.
Both R&C are very creative and passionate in interior designing yet they are also very open and respectful when it comes to our selections / suggestions as well. We really love exchanging ideas with them. It was an amazing and fun renovation journey. The best part about working with Royston and Cher on building our dream home is that it didnt just stop right after the handover of keys. They assisted us in our furnitures / house decoration selections as well. They really went all out for us as home owners as though it was their own. We really like that additional part where not all ID does that. This duo is really the one to go if you are building a dream home instead of a house. They care for yours like their own and they are so fun to work with. We were so glad to have engaged them, and everyone has been talking about how beautifully our place is - the crazy idea that came true and everything fits so magically despite having 4 different themes in 1 house.
With all these said, we would like to have a BIG shoutout to Royston and Cher, thank you for your amazing help to conceptualize and actualizing our dream home. We couldn't have this without you. Appreciate all your efforts and time in building our house.Highly recommend them to have their magic touch to your dream house.

The universe works in mysterious ways and that can't be any more true how we ended up choosing Royston as our ID. Unlike many who usually engage the IDs recommended by their friends or family who are tested and proven, my wife (mainly her) and I did our own research . We were introduced to this tattoo ang moh beng Royston that we were initially skeptical about, however he quickly proved himself and put our doubts to rest.
Not only was Royston very creative, he was also sort of a visionary that brought to the drawing board fresh ideas and suggestions that none of the previous IDs we consulted shared. He takes pride in the designs he did for his clients and will not just plagiarize what he used in other projects and lift and shift over to ours. Every design to him was indeed truly hand-actualized. He has this endless bout of eagerness that is raring to go and by the end of the first meeting with him, we are already sold that this is the ID that we will want to work with!
Throughout the entire journey, Royston was professionally consultative and caring enough to be a true friend. There was no need to be haggling for prices as there is the element of trust that we know he wants the best for our home. The relationship developed into more of a partnership where we work towards a common goal.
Don't be fooled by his tender age and boyish looks, Royston displayed a sense of maturity and professionalism when is comes to the execution and delivery of the end product. Although there were some hiccups along the way (who doesn't) and some minor delays, we had faith that all is in good stead and will only make the dream home truly worth it.
We are really glad that we had the privilege to be working with a young budding local talent and as first time home owners, couldn't have ask for a better ID to be working with. Thank you!
We wanna say Thank You to our ID - Royston. Our home turned out to be better than we visualised it to be. I made up my mind during the first appointment. We wanted a Scandustrial themed home & we have no regrets choosing Royston. The open-concept, “black” kitchen & the platform area in our living room are my most favourite spots!!
Royston was always full of ideas and so eager to share his suggestions. We were pretty much on the same page. We were working with a budget and a certain time frame & yet he delivered as promised. He made sure his Contractors were getting the job done as quickly as possible not compromising on workmanship.
Royston also helped us to pick out the perfect accessories to compliment our crib! I think it’s very important your ID knows exactly what you want. It makes life sooo much easier. We didn’t have to explain what we wanted, he knew right away. He just got it. Thanks a lot, Royston!👍 From an ordinary space to this cosy place we now call home!😊 Wishing you all the best with future projects!!!

I had design in mind, however I was not able to put it in words. With the help of ID Royston Ho, the design for my home was actualized. I was given a 3D render for the design, and the final product did match it very closely. Royston was also resourceful in finding certain materials which I specifically requested for, and was able to adhere to my aesthetic wants. I opted for an industrial look and he was able to deliver. I am particularly pleased with the mild steel structures as well as the feature wall that was selected and put in place. Additionally, he also suggested lighting to complement the feel of the house. I am pleased with the design! Thank you!
We were ID hunting before we officially get our house. We’re definitely glad that we got him because he listened to our wants n needs for our house , and improvise wherever he can. Not only that, we could get along with him really well. He is always replying to our queries even via whatsapp. Thanks, Royston!
We are glad to have engaged Royston to assist with our renovation at Toa Payoh. It has been a great pleasure to work with Royston as he understood our needs and requirements to make our home the way we want it to be. Thank you so much!
Wife and I were excited to transform our resale flat to our dream house after getting our keys; after setting up numerous appointments with countless ID firms, we were at the point of giving up on how our dream house should look like after being told of numerous restrictions. We finally met Royston & Cerine; these young designers were able to visualize what we were trying to achieve in our house, they knew and understood what we wanted and had workarounds to the limitations that we thought was not possible.
Overall Project management was good, very responsive to our concerns during the renovation. There were minor hiccups and defects along the way which were quickly fixed.
Highly recommended designers if you are looking for a breath of fresh air and something creative!
