They always say that designer products are the nicest, well today I will introduce you guys to a designer public housing. It is The Pinnacle@Duxtona a 2.5 hectare residential estate located at 1 Cantonment Road, Singapore. With a total of seven blocks of 50 storeys high, it is a unique project by the Housing and Development Board (HDB) as the design is of a dissimilar combination from their usual types of styles.
The Pinnacle@Duxton is very different from other housing estates in Singapore because it was the recipient of the Best Tall Building Asia and Australasia Award in 2010 and it was also given by The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat. The unique and fun part about these buildings is having connecting link bridges among the blocks at level 29 and 50 which serve as a running track (a big wow from me) and there is a sky garden at the roof level which is open to both residents and the public. It is a very nice place to hang around at and have fun shooting. At the same time, it is also a good viewing spot for fireworks during special occasions in Singapore.
Come on down to Pinnacle@Duxton and go up to the Sky Garden and have a great time shooting!
