SkyVille @Dawson

HDB apartments with sky garden at sleepy Queenstown.

"Awarded a Platinum Greenmark rating - Singapore's highest and the first for public housing -  the project adopts robust passive design strategies including naturally lit and ventilated lobbies, staircases, access corridors. All apartments are naturally ventilated and due to the open, airy design, a substantial proportion of units have not installed air-conditioning. Photovoltaics on the roof power the common facilities. The design is fully precast and prefabricated, reducing waste and errors on site. The design creates variety through the re-arrangement of the modules, through colour, light and shade."

Shake Shack @Neil Road

"Formerly the Tiger Balm factory, evident with the rooftop pagoda-shaped like their trademark bottle, the iconic building sitting on 89 Neil Road was erected in 1924 in a beautifully intricate Neoclassical style."

Tiong Bahru Market

"Despite the rapid pace of the modernisation that has taken place all around the rest of the Tiong Bahru estate, this building stands firm as one of the last bastions of the old Tiong Bahru, a reminder of a time when life was simpler and the neighbourhood just a little quieter."

Very curious about the spot where the man was standing...
