HDB floor plans rare layouts

See first HDB floor plans (100 most common layouts) if you did not saw arleady. I created this additional page to post less common layouts found by me or contributed by people visiting my website, without overloading main page.

Terrible proportioned HDB layouts

Bukit Batok West Avenue 5, blk 383-395 (Goodview Gardens, built 2005), probably identical with Farrer Park blk 11-15 (2004). 4-Room Model A, probably WORST HDB layout, space-wasting hallway to bedrooms which have a pointed shape. Very small living room, about 4×4 meters and I can’t imagine how to put a dining table, TV and sofa without having kids passing in front of sofa going to bedrooms.

Sengkang, blk 297-299 (Compassvale Green, built 2001), Premium Executive Apartment, having HUGE living room and tiny bedrooms, no hallways, contrasting with Bukit Batok ones.

Taman Jurong, built 1964/1969-1974, most demolished in 1990s and 2000s). Earliest blocks were built by Economic Development Board in cooperation with HDB starting from 1964, then JTC took over in 1969.

THIS is how does look a block full with unsold Executive Apartment (140 sqm?) split into 2-Room (52 sqm?) and 3-Room (83 sqm), 5 sqm lobby, resulting in a fucking crazy layout! Notice window position for living room and master toilet! I am curious if they built another bomb shelter for the 2-Room! This is from Sengkang, but converted blocks are also in Jurong West.

  1. Hi…

    Could i check with you if the following design (floor plan) can be found in clementi, dover, jurong east or queenstown areas?

    HDB1993-1998EA Corner (toilets are not back to back) I wasnt able to cut and paste the image here.


  2. I’m staying in Bukit Batok West avenue 5, BLK390, Goodview Gardens. To me, it is a lovely place. There are different deign of gardens around each of the block, 2 pavilions are designed and built in between of blk 39388 to 390 and Blk 391 to 395. The background of the block series is the Military camp. Thats the reason why HDB created this unique strcuture to block window view from the residences.

    The spacious living room has unblocked greenary view for my 5 rooms units.

    I agree with you that the living room space is a bit congested for 4 room units here.

    However, I DISAGREE on such way you commond it as ” possible the WORST HDB layout”. Come on, I believe if you will only choose to buy a house when you like it. Same here, WE LOVE GOODVIEW GARDENS, it is our HOME SWEET HOME !

    1. The floorplan looks awful on the paper, but it’s not that bad to live in the unit. Or perhaps, I’m used to it having lived there for years.

  3. Unusual narrow 3-Room from Sengkang, does anyone know BTO name? -> This is Fernvale Crest, in Sengkang West next to Jalan Kayu.
