Feng Shui of High Park Residences Condo 1. Five out of six blocks of HIgh Park Residences reminds one of the HDB 5-bedroom "point block type of flats" Resource: http://forum.geomancy.net/phpforum/article.php?bid=2&fid=19&mid=12003&new=?iframe=true 2. The HDB 5-bedroom "point block type of flats" has a distinctive outline and first constructed sometime in the early 1970's. One can still see lots of these 1970's and subsequently even up to the late 1990's with variants of this design. 3. Why did I bring this out? 3.1. Such point-block flats have one of the safest Shapes and Forms configuration. And the key success factor is that qi or air can flow around it. Much like wind blowing around a tree trunk. 3.2. Thus this design has a distinctive advantage over the "snaking" or C shaped or U shaped design that brings qi or rather circulate qi = advantage to some stacks but not all. 4. Thus it is a refreshing change; once again to see such a design like these older 1970's point blocks and their later years variants of this design. 5. Well thought out Block spacing design 5.1 Although this plot is NEAR rectangular plot of land. 5.2 Some architects would simply line the blocks in "large slabs" parallel to each other much like sites like A Treasure Trove and many other similar designs. 5.3. I am very glad that the architect gave much thought to the spacing as well as angle of the blocks. 5.4. Not sure if this story is true or not. But here goes:- 5.4.1. One day, the architect brought home 7 blocks of wood and the profile of this plot of land. 5.4.2. He then began to placed all blocks parallel to each other. 5.4.3. When he was not around this project; his son came long and thought that his Papa brought home a "lego-bricks play thing" 5.4.4. His son, left Blocks 25, 27 & 29 alone. As such they are now parallel to each other. And his son, playfully angled Block 23 slightly to match the profile of the plot of land. And placed Block 21 at a more extreme angle. Block 31 was also angled slightly to match the profile of the plot of land. 6. His papa came returned to his project. When he say what his son did; he asked him for his reason by his son did this. 6.1. His son despite being only 6 years old said: "Papa, I gave "more" distance between many units from each other and don't you think this design "sells" better..." 7.?On closer-look, one would realise that is why architect may have first placed Blocks 25, 27 & 29 parallel to each other. And the rest is history!
