Home is where our memories are made. With iconic designs and beautiful green spaces, it’s no surprise that many heartlanders enjoy posting Instagram photos of their #HDBeautiful home and neighbourhoods.

From uncovering hidden spaces to shedding new light on our estates, here are some of our favourite local Instagrammers (in no particular order) to follow!

Be awed by Miguel’s feed that showcases building façades with a keen attention to visual composition and flow of each photo. The photos of HDB projects are also interspersed with housing blocks overseas, lending greater appreciation to local flat designs!

What stands out in Gareth’s photos is the strong shadow details that not only highlights the buildings’ silhouettes but also tell their stories through the passage of time. As a resident of Bedok for over 25 years, Gareth has also been visually documenting the town as a personal project.
