Sauna Removed from HDB Flat After Reddit Post Goes Viral


Marine Parade Town Council staff removed a sauna outside a Housing Board flat in Serangoon Central on Thursday (11 July) afternoon, following viral photos of the wooden structure that were uploaded on reddit earlier this week.

The wooden structure, placed on a platform outside the owner’s house, had been visible from the lift landing.

As per the media reports, neighbors said the sauna had been present for a long time and did not pose an inconvenience, although some complained about plants along the corridor.

Despite the sauna being present when they moved in, many neighbors rarely saw the owner but described her as pleasant.

When asked by CNA, Town Council said that the sauna had been removed at the request of the owner.

“The owner has approached us yesterday to arrange for the removal of the sauna fixture, and with our assistance, the fixture was removed from the common area earlier today,” the town council said.

It said that it “has been engaging the owner to reduce the clutter outside her unit over the years, and the owner has made some effort in doing so”.

“The owner has made another appointment with the town council to further declutter the area. We will work closely with her to do so,” it added according to CNA.

After the removal of the sauna, Singapore Civil Defence Force personnel were seen taking measurements of the corridor’s width and photos of the area. They declined to comment to the media.
