Comprising three rectangular blocks oriented around a central courtyard and 30m-long swimming pool, this house not only accommodates seven family members, but also holds several surprises too.

The living room, for example, is spacious enough to accommodate a grand piano, and affords excellent vantage points of the front garden, the courtyard and the swimming pool.

Swiss artist Alain Roche did just that at dawn last Friday, as he gave a piano concert at a construction site in Munich, Germany.

What was more impressive was how he did it - he and his grand piano were hanging vertically in mid-air, suspended from a crane.

In 2019 Roland decided to turn Kim’s ideas into an actual working instrument. The company assembled a small design team at their headquarters in Hamamatsu, Japan. Using Roland’s latest PureAcoustic modelling software and their Acoustic Projection System a fully functioning GPX-F1 Facet Grand Piano was constructed. And it was unveiled to the world at this week’s CES (2020) exhibition in Las Vegas.

Whether a grand piano can fit into a HDB flat in Singapore, or even a HDB lift in the first place, is definitely an interesting and popular question to ask when you want to buy a piano.

Given its big dimensions compared to an upright piano, we have always wonder if it is possible to live the dream of having a grand piano within our very own HDB living room in the heartland.

Curators from the Louisiana State Museum raised $35,000 to have it reassembled and restored.

Despite the painstaking restoration, the white grand piano is unplayable. It is this last fact that makes the story of this instrument such a powerful metaphor for New Orleans since Katrina.
