Hi all,

First timer - 4 room applicant here.

I've got a question. After reviewing the unit layouts, I realised that most units come with a household shelter that is placed near the kitchen.

I also came across some articles stating that we can choose if we want the household shelter near the entrance of the living room or the kitchen.

I was wondering if it's true or if what shown in the online PDF is fixed?

Any comments/advice is appreciated!

Thanks.

Hi

The each stack will have different placing of household shelter, we couldn't choose where to place our household shelter.

I'm also interested to know how they look like! would it be wise to stay on the same level as the sky terrace? would it be noisy etc? i'm shortlisting some units right now but dunno if it would be facing the west sun... can someone advise if unit 98, 100, 328 and 330 would be facing the west sun?
I presume if u take the lower floor for those units the west sun should not affect you coz blocked by the higher unit on the left....

98 and 328 the wall on the master bedroom will mostly be shine on by the west sun for the few higher lvls....

this is my guess correct me if i'm wrong.....

I just went through all the design of the 4 room majority of it have the household shelter right in the middle of the house which is in front of the kitchen thus taking up the best place for a dining area setup......

only the few unit 20, 64, 74, 332, 296, 292 and 294 have the household shelter beside the main entrance but their main facing is towards the hdb area thus no view of the sungei serangoon river......

now cracking my head which to choose.... good view hard layout or good layout no view.....

any opinions??????

Thank you so much for your reply, does that mean if i take unit 100 or 330 it would be better as living room area is hit by west sun? i'm planning to take higher floors. or since we would not go to master bedroom until we sleep, does that mean 98 and 328 is better? i'm so confused about this.

I think unless you take the highest few level then the west sun would affect the living room for unit 100 330.

the other 2 unit is the west sun shining onto the main wall in the master bedroom thus you would or should not see the sun shining at all but should be able to feel the heat on the wall emitting to the room on hot seasons.

so ultimately it depends on what you want..... but generally I think since you taking high level either left or right also gonna be affect by the west sun so might as well just choose the unit design you want and the facing you like would be better.

I am also having the same dilemma. Always wanted an open kitchen concept but on the other hand, we are already paying for a view even if we get a unit without a nice view

Don’t you think shelter beside the kitchen will ‘make’ your living room more space?

if shelter infront of kitchen then it means the dining table will have to be within the living room area thus also taking up the living room space.

but instead if the shelter is beside the main entrance then the space in front of the kitchen would be spacious and can be designed into a open kitchen concept.

even if a wall is erected infront of the kitchen the space infront can be arranged with a small dining table for a small family which is more condusive. the wall can even be designed as semi open concept which is quite european style.

anyway with my q number 386 I suppose I wun be able to get a river view unit as there is only 308 river view unit......

but imo I think the price for a unit without river view will be much lower than those with river view. coz the developer will take this into consideration thus price is also a main factor..... so selecting a unit without river view will definitely be much lower even if on the same block same level

If price is lower, it will definitely help in making a decision. Lots of discussion going on with the fiancé on the unit selection. Hope you get a unit you like!
