KTMA, is the intials used to refer to ‘Korean Taekwondo Martial Arts’.


As one of Singapore's Leading Taekwondo Schools, KTMA is lead by a team of qualified ‘gahng sa(s)’ graduated from Korean Taekwondo universities, with years of experience winning multiple awards.


Here at their second school, the Black and white color theme is widely used as it is their corporate colors. Black painted ceiling is applied here as it makes up for the cosiness and also deviates the focus to the rest of the environment in white. The floor padding in white at the training ground compliments the black ceiling like the flow of Yin & Yang balance between two opposites with a portion of the opposite element in each section. 

Inspirations for the concept were derived from nature, the use of brown wood laminate on the divider located at the reception, and the use of limestone print laminate on the reception counter creates a cool and sophisticated all applied here to compliment the monotonous theme.


Fixtures in this space have been tailored for the client with wood & stone effect materials and the clever use of an image printed in black on a fabric screen ties in the nature theme.


The space exudes a timeless design with functional style and simple sophistication, ignoring the frills and fussiness of the time’s trending style.
