It's a common sight that residents might not look twice at.
But Jonathan Tan, a Singaporean creative, has managed garner widespread interest in the old-school tables and stools found at HDB void decks.
Since sharing his photo album to Facebook, Tan has garnered over 3,700 shares.
The photo series, named "Lepak Downstairs", features old-school stools and tables found at HDB void decks in Singapore which he felt were "quaint and charming".
The name of the project translates to "Relax Downstairs".
Tan said that the photos were taken with a iPhone XR and a three-metre selfie stick.

Modern designs replacing the old
In his post, Tan noted that the HDB void decks were built with a communal spirit in mind to encourage intermingling between residents.
He also added that the older designs were gradually being replaced by more modern designs as HDB estates are refurbished.
His photos, therefore, seek to preserve the memory of the older designs.
