    Believe it is illegal unless have building mgt and authority approval.
    If done, will there be windows in the bedroom ?Seems difficult.
    Proper one bedder have windows (some full glass windows).

    If it's not to rent out the room, suggest you get a high bookcase or shelf and use it as partition.

    need to hijack this thread. What if I were to transform the study into 2 storey walk in wardrobe with enclosed wall, do i still need to get permission? And what is the chance of getting approve?

    Thanks
