HDB Anchorvale Fields: Precinct Pavilion

Recommended Posts


The newly launched site: HDB Anchorvale Fields estate is a fresh depature over many of the projects launched last year in various areas.

Here, HDB Anchorvale Fields architects have placed the Precinct Pavilion at "one corner" and found space for it within block 351 comprising the MSCP, supermarket and shops.

This is because in past developments the precinct pavilion was centrally located. And (unfortunately) often wakes are conducted in them.

And many stacks/units up to as high as 6 storeys could be in full view of them. This especially so as we cannot blame the residents if tomorrow is one of their major holidays e.g. Chinese New Year lasting 15 days and a wake is carried out with "noise - prayers , instruments" in full view of their living room and bedrooms 1 and master bedroom(s).

Thus, this development's project architects most likely are aware of this concern and placed the pavilion tucked away to a corner of the MSCP carpark complex.

In addition, although the location of the common rubbish bins in each of HDB Anchorvale Field's is not perfect; at least, in my opinion a much better design/layout vs that of block 150A Yung Ho Spring similar new development. (The article is a few clicks away from this one).

HDB Buangkok Parkvista is also a newly launched BTO site.

In my opinion, I feel that the project architect for this development has made an effort to plan this site.

Firstly, similar to HDB Anchorvale Fields; Buangkok Parkvista's precinct pavilion is also "tucked" away between the MSCP and the other amenities building.

In addition, did you notice that there is a proposed future road = a semi-expressway?

The project architect had given much thought by placing especially the MSCP (multi-storey car park); the precinct pavilion and other amenities to this side of the future "noisy" expressway. And keeping all the blocks far away from this future semi-expressway.

In addition, the project architect for this development went back to the past design where the common rubbish bins are opposite side of the lift lobby. This is and was the most popular / functional design without affecting as many flats main entrance (as possible) facing the common bins.

In addition, within constrains of the semi-expressway and the site; I believe this development could even try to "squeeze" as many of the stacks/units to a traditionally more acceptable "North-south" facing - before the advent of the understanding of the Flying stars. While only 9 stacks facing SE.

Another minor consideration is the
drop-off porch:

1. It's height and design.

1.1. Since it has not been constructed, yet
best to take extra care especially when
considering buying low floors. Especially
if it is Block 998B stacks 733 or 731 and Block 999B
stack 749. As in the illustration; the drop-off porch is angled 45 degrees to these stacks in the blocks.

HDB Buangkok Square precinct pavilion

In some of the newer estates that T.O.P. one or two years ago had the precinct pavilion closer to the centre of the estate.

The plus point is that it is more convenient to most residents. But the trade-off is that many stacks/units are in full view of the pavilion.

And if there are wakes/funerals this may be a frequent "eye-sore"
for majority of these residents.

Thus for HDB Buangkok Square, I am sure the project architect must
have given it some thought and placed it at the "base" of the esate.

Furthermore, this precinct pavilion is highly visible to (not so familiar visitors to a funeral/wake there) as it is directly at the vicinity of one of the two car park entrances - Buangkok Link side.

Because of the location of the precinct pavilion: best to avoid purchasing Blk 992A stacks 159 and 157 (especially the lower storeys which may have a direct /close-up view of the interior of the pavilion.

One good thing about the block layout of HDB Buangkok Square is that as the blocks/stacks/units are North-South & vice versa facing;

Many blocks/stacks are spared from the direct rays of the afternoon sun.

Thus only a handful that have "bare-walls" towards unblocked afternoon sun would get the greatest exposure on their walls -- soaking up heat in the day and oozeing heat in the evening.

There are many cases of potential buyers of re-sale flats went to view these "afternoon sun" flats. The existing owners and/or agents would cleverly turn on the air-con especially in the affected rooms usually is the master-bed room;

And the potential buyers never know wiser - until they actually bought these flats and found that in the evening the sun soaked walls started to slowly ooze out heat retained in the walls. Thus, turning on a fan will only circulate hot-air. And often, such hot rooms may make one more irritant and quarrelsome - because of the comfort level

However, do take note that because of the tilt of the earth axis; every six months the sun rays may tilt a little. And as a result if one see an illustration of the 2nd attachment; one can see that there is some sun rays that may filter slightly into the living room / bedrooms facing the side of the sun rays. This is not as bad since it is not direct afternoon sun.

The newly launched site: HDB Tampines Greenridges
In this development, although the pavilion precinct is located exactly at the centre of the development; fortunately only one stack: Block 605D stack 360's low storeys can clearly see into the precinct pavilion.
Actually, based on Shapes and Forms Feng Shui; block 605d stack 360's HIGH floors are suppose to have one of the better location/position in this entire development.

Tampines Greenridges type of estate design is considered as "the next best thing" to a condo development design.
"Where to two large 2 storey car-parks with "roof" greenery is considered as the next best alternative of having "clear water".
Here, as this is a HDB estate, it is not allowed to have swimming pools or water falls or water features in it's estate.
However, just imagine; if we replace the two large 2 storey car-parks with water positions; ain't this similar to many other condo developments where many of the stacks/units face in-wards "into the pool" area?
In many older estates, one can usually find very long blocks with most of their common corridors and living rooms facing towards the road vs this type of development.
I believe, the project architect might have got his inspiration for HDB Tampines Greendriges from perhaps the condo he/she is staying or had worked on a similar plot with condo layout such as Luxury in Sengkang or La Fiesta type and many more with such similarities..

Parkvista's precinct pavilion
is also "tucked" away between
the MSCP and the other
amenities building.
In addition, did you notice
that there is a proposed
future road = a
semi-expressway?
The project architect had
given much thought by placing
especially the MSCP
(multi-storey car park); the
precinct pavilion and other
amenities to this side of the
future "noisy" expressway. And
keeping all the blocks far
away from this future
semi-expressway.
In addition, the project
architect for this development
went back to the past design
where the common rubbish bins
are opposite side of the lift
lobby. This is and was the
most popular / functional
design without affecting as
many flats main entrance (as
possible) facing the common
bins.
In addition, within constrains
of the semi-expressway and the
site; I believe this
development could even try to
"squeeze" as many of the
stacks/units to a
traditionally more acceptable
"North-south" facing - before
the advent of the
understanding of the Flying
stars. While only 9 stacks
facing SE.

Thus, this development's

are aware of this concern and
placed the pavilion tucked

In addition, although the
location of the common rubbish

better design/layout vs that
of block 150A Yung Ho Spring
similar new development. (The

HDB The Veranda at Matilda

1. There is nothing really bad with a centrally locatedprecinct pavilion most of the time.

2. But if there are festive occasions especially Chinese New Year; where a wake/funeral may be carried in the precinct; and it is in full view of many stacks/units; then many Chinese are superstitious of the "clash" of both events: one joyous the other sorrowful.

Here, as this is a HDB estate,
it is not allowed to have
swimming pools or water falls
or water features in it's
estate.
However, just imagine; if we
replace the two large 2 storey
car-parks with water
positions; ain't this similar
to many other condo
developments where many of the
stacks/units face in-wards
"into the pool" area?
In many older estates, one can
usually find very long blocks
with most of their common
corridors and living rooms
facing towards the road vs
this type of development.
I believe, the project
architect might have got his
inspiration for HDB Tampines
Greendriges from perhaps the
condo he/she is staying or had
worked on a similar plot with
condo layout such as Luxury in
Sengkang or La Fiesta type and
many more with such
similarities..

In this development, although
the pavilion precinct is
located exactly at the centre
of the development;
fortunately only one stack:
Block 605D stack 360's low
storeys can clearly see into
the precinct pavilion.
Actually, based on Shapes and
Forms Feng Shui; block 605d
stack 360's HIGH floors are
suppose to have one of the
better location/position in
this entire development.

HDB Anchorvale Field's Block 351B and 351C

 

I feel that it is a nice-touch to have both Block 351B and 3551C's central rubbish bin : quite centrally located and also placed next to the common staircase an excellent well thought out design.

Looks like this development has a common rubbish chute and a "green" chute, also
