How about the old housings near Tiong Bahru Market? Probably you can still find some red brick buildings there.

Hill street fire station.
just checked out the location and its badly fenced up. the only side of the building which has a clean blank wall (free from windows/ pillars) has a fence in front of it and the path in front of the way is a slanted slope. quite hard to work with. anyone else has any alternatives?

some old HDB blocks you have a whole red brick wall, Toa Payoh have planty.

if you want just brick walls in light color, try Queenstown cinema

thanks catchlights. i found the queenstown one by googling too. not really the look i was going for though. my friend living at toa payoh said that many of the red brick wall flats are no longer around. Would you happen to know where exactly in toa payoh? =)

thanks for the suggestions! found it, loved it. cant believe that something as prominent as this could be right under my nose the whole time. pass by defu and eunos countless times and it never ever occurred to me that the boring industrial area had some quirkiness to it. =)

Hi guys, i would require your help again. going for a shoot this weekend and would like to know if anyone knows where there is an open blank white wall? doesnt matter the texture of it.

additionallly, for you whimsical shooters, queenstown cinema is now closed off and will be torn down soon. so the location is no longer an option for the comments above. :)
