The Marina Bay Sands LEGO set will be available at the hotel’s gift shop as well as select retailers in Asia. But if you look around on the internet long enough I’m sure you can find a set for sale.

Singapore has all the dopest houses. The “Slim House”, as it’s called, was designed by Hyla Architects. This hidden gem is concealed by a surrounding garden ensuring residents will never have to worry about privacy. The spiral staircase serves as the centerpiece to the house and takes guests from the ground level to the home’s entrance. The pool and outdoor living area is contained in the aforementioned garden of dopeness. The interior features several distinct living spaces on the top level, a modern kitchen, and a massive living room perfect for entertaining any guests lucky enough to receive an invitation to visit the residence.
The Tower House gets its name from the 4-story glass tower that accounts for the majority of the home. It was designed to resemble an observatory. The 4-story tower connects each of the levels to one another. The first 3 stories were designed as private suites featuring small bed and bath areas. The 4th story is serves as the “observatory” which hangs out over the forest, providing residents with amazing views and instantly dropping panties. The glass exterior of the modern vacation home really set it apart from its natural surroundings.
