Unique and Fascinating HDB Floorplans

Unique and fascinating HDB floorplansSince young, I have long been fascinated with Housing Development Board (HDB) flats. In fact, HDB proved that it doesn’t disappoint with its most bizarre HDB design which leave us somewhat flabbergasted. Yet on the other hand, HDB has also built some really amazing HDB projects too.

Today, let us take a look at some of the unique and fascinating HDB designs from early days till date…


Before HDB was established, Singapore Improvement Trust, (SIT) was set up in 1927. The types of public housing that SIT has built included – are you ready for this? – landed terraced houses! These amazing public houses can be found in Jalan Bahagia and Stirling Road. Due to its unique design, the owners expanded the size of their units and built additional rooms around their flats over time.

Therefore, these HDB units with multiple balconies should be able to provide gardening enthusiasts like her ample space to persuade their interest.

Unique_HDB_loftMy love affair with loft units stems from my obsession with large vertical open spaces. The large vertical windows let in ample sunlight and gives the entire place a sun-flushed and airy look, something which most of HDB flats lack. Furthermore, the home interior design possibilities are endless too!

Unique_HDB_multi-gen For homeowners who wish to live under one roof with their parents, multi generation flats are the solution. In the past, the homeowners can retain their privacy and the unit comes with a ‘granny’ flat attached, which also comes fitted with its own toilet and kitchen.

However, the newer 3 Generation flats have an area of only a measly 115 sqm to cater for a total of 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms! Certainly quite a squeeze indeed! I really hope that HDB would consider increasing the sizes of such 3 Generation units!

Unique_HDB_jumboJumbo HDB units are created from adjoining 3 rooms or even 4 room flats. Hence, the size can start from as small as 134 sqm to even 170 sqm. It is my all-time favorite type of HDB design due to its sheer colossal size and the number of rooms!
