Mondrian Makeover at Teck Whye

It’s perennially summer in Singapore – with that, I wanted to share about these HDBs (public housing apartments in Singapore) that probably best showcase this summer-y feeling! Blocks 1 to 7 at Teck Whye Avenue have undergone a re-paint following the colour scheme of Piet Mondrian’s Composition with Yellow, Blue and Red. Upon hearing the news, I knew I had to go and check them out for myself!

If you’re wondering, HDBs are painted according to various colour schemes and designs, and they are maintained and re-painted every several years. The Teck Whye residential estate, located at the north-western side of Singapore close to Choa Chu Kang and Bukit Panjang, consist of older residential blocks, and their makeover is definitely in the most special design I have seen. Residents were asked to choose between two design options, and ultimately this Mondrian design won!

I just appreciate all the detail that went into the painting – from the exterior building facades to the sheltered walkways and the void deck columns!

Would you choose to move here just to be able to say you live in a Mondrian-inspired HDB? In any case, I’m sure our expectations of what kind of designs we want in our HDBs have been upped…
