London’s Serie Architects has revealed its competition-winning design for a new neighbourhood centre and clinic in Singapore
The practice, which is working with Singapore-based Multiply Architects on the scheme, has designed the scheme around a terraced plaza.
Alongside the large communal gardens, the 27,000m2 project includes playspaces, gyms, shops, restaurants, education spaces, and a 9,400m2 health centre.
Christopher Lee, principal of Serie Architects, said; ‘Our design is conceived as light and open frame that captures and accommodates the diverse programmes for the community, it is an architectural framework for communal life to unfold in.
‘The architecture is characterised by a sense of lightness and openness allowing daylight and breezes to permeate the building. Wide, sky-lit north-south and east-west thoroughfares closely connect the centre to the surrounding neighbourhood and naturally divide it into the polyclinic and commercial centre phases. These lead directly to the large sheltered plaza creating a vibrant heart for the community.’
