Rediscover one of Singapore’s most iconic urban features
Think public housing in Singapore is boring? We bet you’ll change your mind once you get to the end of this article. Singapore may be a concrete jungle, but as the murals on the streets and charming heritage buildings show us, you can find beautiful art almost everywhere in the city. Even our humble HDB flats have been catching our eye more and more lately, boasting all sorts of creative designs from pop art to Medieval-style architecture. Since many of the oldest and prettiest buildings have been demolished these past few years, we don’t want to wait till it’s too late to treasure the architectural heritage around us. Want to get not just great but unique photos of Singapore? Plan a trail to visit these super camera-ready HDB flats!

These two HDB blocks exemplify the kind of gems you can find in Bedok. They make us feel warm just looking at them. Gradient pastel hues of cream-white bloom into peach pink from top to bottom – simple, but so pretty!
