You may have shopped at HAO Mart for their affordable fresh veggies and groceries. What you may not have known is that the founder and CEO of HAO Mart, Dr Tan Kim Yong, lives in a lavish Good Class Bungalow shaped like a spaceship in the Tanglin district nestled between the luxury residential areas of Botanic Gardens and Orchard.
Villa Otto, 17 Jervois Hill
Named Villa Otto, located at 17 Jervois Hill, HAO Mart founder’s house was designed by award-winning Italian architecture studio, Mercurio Design Lab, to look like a figure ‘8’ – an auspicious symbol in Feng Shui for wealth and prosperity.
Rumour also has it that there are no sharp edges or corners in this house – sharp angles are considered negative and ‘poison’ yin energy in the school of Feng Shui.
