Main Entrance Door facing staircase (stairs)

The bad news: The main entrance door is facing the staircase. Worse still; the stairs is sloping downwards.
The Good news: By (Singapore law) all doors leading into staircases has to be closed all the time. As these doors are usually 1/2 hour fire rated.
For this illustration; most likely, the development (site) is still work-in-progress.
Location: New HDB flats @ Havelock Road. Block 56 Havelock Road.

In summary, if we stand at the main entrance door and can see stairs leading downwards; this symbolises "money down the drain".
As mentioned, previously, by Singapore law, the staircase door by right should be closed at all times. If so, if the stairs cannot be seen; "it no longer becomes a threat"

The BTO flat that we wanted to get is facing the stairs, but we are not sure if its facing down or upwards. Found a floor plan online,  seeing the floorplan, it looks like facing downwards. In this case, how can we prevent it?

Frankly, no photos how to tell.

Anyway, by law, it is mandatory to keep the staircase door always closed at all time.

This is to prevent especially (touchwood) smoke from a unit on fire from spreading to this emergency stairwell exit.

We don't have the floorplan yet, only can get the screenshot from HDB web. 
We are looking on 143 (based on the picture). In front of the main door actually the stairs.

1. Thank you for the site map.

2. If the front door is within marking in red "X" then the front door is literally not directly facing the staircase door.

3. However, there are some who says that if one stands at the front door, if one could see the stairs then this is inauspicious.

4. Fortunately as mentioned under my earlier reply, it is mandatory under Singapore law that such emergency exit doors must be closed at all times.

5. It is considered a Sha Qi if the front door faces partial staircase wall as shown in the example via a "z":-

Thank you Master Lee, I actually found the floorplan. 
Assume for the #143 unit the main door looks like its facing downhill staircase correct?

In Singapore, it does not matter if a unit front door faces an emergency exit staircase.

Why? LOOK (closely) HERE…

Frankly, there is no need ever for such a Notice! It is understood!

Location: DBSS Belvia at Bedok Reservoir. Under Aljunied Hougang Town Council.

Try leaving the door opened despite been warned and in Singapore, the courts may sent the offender to the Institute of Mental Health (IMH) for two weeks observation. 

And if found nothing wrong with the persons' HEAD, the Judge may either fine the person or instead get free meals and "starbucks" in there!
