Commissioned by the Housing and Development Board as an exploration of the future of affordable public housing, WOHA‘s public housing design for Skyville @ Dawson consists of 960 new homes. Their project is currently under construction and is estimated to be completed by February 2015. The design focuses on 3 themes – community, variety and sustainability.
There is a variety of community space. Each home is part of a Sky Village: 80 homes which share a naturally ventilated community terrace and garden. The block is composed of 3 villages, stacked 4 high, for a total of 12 villages. Other community areas include: the Community Living Rooms at ground level, which provides seating areas overlooking the park and is located on the main entrance route of the development; the Landscaped Park, which retains enormous historic rain trees and provides two community pavilions, play and fitness areas, courts and lawns; the Rooftop Park, which houses a 400m jogging track and rooftop pavilions which support a PV array that powers the common lighting; the Urban Plaza, located along a public linear park and provides supermarket, coffee shop and retail spaces.
The design gives variety by offering you flexible floor plans with a column free and beam free main space, eliminating waste and allowing diverse lifestyles, such as home office or loft living as well as future flexibility.
SkyVille has been awarded Singapore’s Green Mark Platinum rating, the highest rating possible. The project uses passive means and avoids the use of energy-intensive solutions rather than using high technology. Every unit is fully naturally ventilated, with every room (including bathrooms and kitchens) having windows. The common areas, lift lobbies and access walkways are all naturally ventilated and lit. The apartments are cross ventilated, with CFD simulations performed at the block and unit level. The units use passive means for comfort – all walls have vertical and horizontal sun breakers to shade both the walls and the windows, all windows have overhangs and special mid-height top hung panels that direct breeze to seating height and allow the windows to remain open during the monsoon period, the units face north and south and have openings on all sides.
PV cells at the rooftop power the common areas and a swale which is a major landscape feature treats storm water before discharging it to the storm water system. The project uses landscaping throughout the tower in the sky villages, additionally it covers 50% of all roof surfaces. Two major landscaped external spaces totaling 1.5Ha are provided.
The Co, a new coworking and office workspace concept has just opened. Located in the heart of the central business district, The Co, a product of Arcc Holdings, is a stylishly designed ecosystem of affordable workspaces created to support the business community and start-ups in Singapore.
The Co’s central philosophy is to provide a space that brings much more to you; it is a place for collaboration, bringing like-minded professionals together to become part of a community. On top of leasing coworking desks and fully-equipped office suites, The Co regularly hosts networking events, workshops, and conferences that allow you to expand your networks. The Co also gives back to the community by opening up its spaces for non-profit events at no cost.
It was created to bring together people who share the same philosophy of collaboration and flexibility in an affordable space. They realise business needs are changing. Their workspaces should similarly evolve with the newer ways people work.
Embracing an open concept, you are free to change your workspace environment according to the type of task you are doing. The Co also offers you fully furnished workspaces equipped with state-of-the-art technology and business support on top of full access to three floors of breakout spaces.
With the high set up costs in Singapore for entrepreneurs, having a flexible range of workspace options, from coworking desks to fully furnished offices complete with business support, helps start-ups save significant time and money. Entrepreneurs who attempt to run their business venture from home or at a cafe may temporarily save on rental but can look less professional and feel less productive than those with a proper structure and community in place.
The Co appeals to start-ups as coworking spaces and flexible office suite arrangements give you access to more opportunities to grow your business. You will also benefit from added visibility amongst local and international investors.
The Co makes the process of getting a space simple and flexible with no hidden costs. You have the flexibility to rent a coworking desk by the day, 10 days a month, or monthly. Fees include WiFi, free flow coffee, pantry, shower facilities, lounge area, brainstorm room and free use of three floors of breakout spaces.
For members who need a private workspace, prices are fully inclusive of a fully furnished suite, internet and telephone services, utilities, security, front desk services, 24-hours access to the building and even cleaning and maintenance. The Co also offers a comprehensive range of business services on demand. From personalised receptionist service to a mailing address, The Co has it all included in a flat fee giving start-ups and entrepreneurs the full package at a steal.
The space has won several prestigious awards for its sleek interior including Gold at the Singapore Design Awards, IAI Best Enterprise Space Design, and Perspective Awards Excellence in Commercial Spaces.
Community in Action for Kheam Hock is a long-term, community-led initiative to improve the living environment by growing bird and butterfly-attracting plants. Covering an area of approximately 100ha, Kheam Hock lies between two biodiversity-rich areas: the Central Catchment Nature Reserve and Singapore Botanic Gardens.
Hence, NParks has earmarked Kheam Hock as a Nature Way, a route planted with specific trees and shrubs to facilitate the movement of animals between two green spaces. Three other Nature Ways have been identified, at Admiralty, Tampines and Yishun. NParks is currently collaborating with NSS and schools along the Nature Ways to grow more plants and carry out biodiversity surveys. It is estimated that more than 60km of the Nature Ways will be planted up by 2015.
Some 20 households in the area have also agreed to grow plants within their premises or on allocated plots as part of NParks' Community in Bloom programme.

Complementing Singapore’s position as the Asian hub for business, finance and education is Singapore’s growing importance as a centre for contemporary art in Asia. Events such as the Singapore Biennale, Art Stage Singapore, complemented by public museums, non-profit spaces and commercial galleries, have created a vibrant arts scene that is making waves in the region and beyond. The contemporary arts scene has seen steady growth in the last 10 years, with increasing local and regional interest in events, exhibitions and education. As the number of venues dedicated to contemporary art increases, more international artists are choosing to unveil their new works to the world from Singapore, thus cementing its position as the centre for contemporary art in Asia.
The deliberate development of the local contemporary art industry in the past decade by the state has resulted in a vibrant arts scene that has been propelled by growing commercial activities including gallery exhibitions, art fairs and auctions. Coupled with Singapore’s strategic position within Asia and an extensive infrastructure of support services, there is no better place to establish your contemporary art gallery in this region.
Gillman Barracks will be the new contemporary art destination in Asia. Distinguished as a creative and intellectual centre, it will become a centre for the production, discussion and distribution of contemporary art in Asia. Complementing the local and international galleries and creative industries will be several new initiatives designed to grow the visual arts ecosystem in region, particularly in the areas of exhibition, residencies, and research.
Anchored within Gillman Barracks will be the newly established Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) Singapore which will be one of the key programming platforms in this new contemporary art destination in Asia. Through its diverse exhibition, residency and research programmes, CCA Singapore aims to be the centre for the production, presentation and interpretation of the arts of our times as well as a catalyst for the exchange of ideas and creative expressions.
Devoted to the presentation of innovative and groundbreaking exhibitions of contemporary art, CCA Singapore’s exhibition programmes embrace a global, multi-disciplinary, and diverse approach towards the presentation and interpretation of contemporary art, showcasing the latest developments through exhibitions, as well as new projects by significant and emerging Singapore, international and Asian artists.
International Artist Residency Programme (IARP)
The International Artist Residency Programme (IARP) will be Singapore’s first internationally-tiered offering that will facilitate the production and creation of works by significant established and emerging international and Asian artists and establish Singapore as a centre for contemporary art creation in the region.
Centre for Contemporary Art Research
The Centre for Contemporary Art Research will be a centre of excellence for the study and research for contemporary art in the region. It will contribute to the discourse and knowledge on Asian and international art production as well as informing the context of cultural production today.
Complementing these core programmes will be year-round dedicated programmes focused in the areas of education, community outreach and audience engagement. The former military barracks are slated to open in the second quarter of 2012 as an international destination for contemporary art with the following galleries confirmed to open thus far:
Integrating Singapore's water bodies into the urban landscape in new and innovative ways is the goal of national water agency PUB. Under its Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters (ABC Waters) programme, a 1.2 km stretch of Alexandra Canal from Tanglin Road continuing downstream to Delta Road was transformed from a functional concrete canal into a pleasant and attractive waterway with softened banks, seamlessly integrated with the adjacent surroundings. CH2M HILL is the principal consultant involved in the project design and the redeveloped canal was opened earlier this year.
This section of Alexandra Canal starts from an elevated lookout deck at Tanglin Road in which gentle ramps lead down to the new structural deck. A water cascade coming down from the elevated deck flows into a shallow stream which meanders into a water play area. At the end of the water play area is an Educational Hut, showcasing panels about water. The shallow stream then gives way to a set of wetlands which naturally treat water from the canal, and provide opportunities for outdoor classroom learning. This is a tranquil area with simple boardwalks and intermittent resting points so people can get close to water and nature. The water in the wetlands is pumped from the canal and cleansed water at the end of the wetlands will trickle through a rockscape area before flowing back into the canal.
Part of the existing concrete wall of the canal was removed to create a setback for soft planting, transforming the waterway from a functional drain into a modern canal with softer edges and nodes that extend out to adjacent urban developments. A community plaza suitable for community activities was constructed at the downstream of the canal, providing a great lookout point for views of the waterway.
The wetland modules designed for this project are surface flow, floating aquatic vegetation and horizontal sub-surface flow. In addition, rain gardens, vegetated swales and bio-retention swales form sustainable natural elements that attenuate and improve the quality of rainwater runoff. The pilot-scale implementation of these various features are also good demonstration tools to educate the public on the feasibility and effectiveness of treating rainwater where it falls, which should not be overlooked in a densely populated urban city such as Singapore.

The Ministry of National Development (MND) recently unveiled further details of its plans for the redevelopment of Geylang Serai, including the new plans for the current Malay Village.
Under the Master Plan 2008, the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) announced that Paya Lebar Central, which Geylang Serai is located within, will be developed into a lively regional centre with a distinct cultural identity. The area will be a pedestrian-friendly commercial hub with offices, retail, hotels, as well as attractive public spaces.
Plans are also in the pipeline for a new civic centre with a public plaza to be built next to the Geylang Serai Market. The working name for the new civic centre is 'Wisma Geylang Serai'. Currently, the 10,000 sqm centre is expected to house a Community Club, a Malay Heritage Gallery, Community Development Council offices and other community-related facilities. The civic centre will be developed by the People's Association (PA) together with other partners such as the National Arts Council (NAC) and National Heritage Board (NHB). The civic centre is expected to be completed by 2015/16.
There will be a 2,000 sqm public plaza beside the civic centre that will cater to cultural events such as performances as well as community events such as festive activities and bazaars.
To retain the annual Hari Raya festivities in the area, URA has also planned for wide pedestrian malls and attractive public areas along Geylang Road so as to provide high quality spaces for festive bazaars and community activities. URA will also be implementing street improvement works within the road reserve to support the annual Hari Raya bazaar while the development of the area takes place. The street improvement works are expected to be completed by June 2012.
In order to realise these proposals, some existing developments will have to be phased out for redevelopment to take place. One of these is the Malay Village, a private commercial development built in 1989, whose lease will expire at the end of 2011. Apart from the civic centre and a public plaza, the Malay Village site will host commercial developments, and an access road to serve new developments.
However, to ensure that Malay trades remain in the area and have the opportunity to slowly evolve into new developments in Geylang Serai, the lease of Tanjong Katong Complex will be extended for another 10 years after the building is upgraded in around 2013.
Its lease, which expires in October next year, has been extended by two years while the new site is being constructed.
The new place, spanning over 0.8ha - about double its current space - will have new areas such as a play area for dogs and counselling rooms for pet owners.
The Singapore SPCA was in existence in the 1800s and a report from the Straits Times Press dated October 3rd 1878 said, “the number of cases brought under the notice of the Singapore Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Animals during the first quarter ending September 30th 1878 was 84, of these 3 were for cruelty to hack ponies, 17 for ill-treatment of oxen and 4 for causing suffering to birds by shooting them with ‘sumpitans’. In 10 cases, the offenders were cautioned and discharged by the Magistrate, 6 were convicted and fined and the remainder were visited by the Agents, who in every case verified that wounded animals and those unfit for labour were not made to work until their condition improved".
This information was recently acquired from a past committee member’s file, but until 1947, there are no other details available. After the Japanese occupation of Singapore in 1947, the RSPCA as it was known then, was revived by an Englishwoman, Miss Lucia Bach. She ran a boarding house and at the same time took in unwanted stray animals.
In the early 1950s, through the generosity of a Eurasian lady, strays were housed on her property and rehomed by volunteers.
In 1954, the RSPCA was set up formally and moved to Orchard Road which is located within the city limits. This move was facilitated by the presence of an RSPCA official from England to engineer the operation and train one of the staff as an inspector. The premises were donated its first official vehicle. At the same time two staff members were hired a telephone operator and a driver.
In 1959, the Singapore RSPCA became the SPCA when Singapore ceased to be a crown colony in that year.
In 1976 from the Orchard Road premises, an official clinic was set up to provide a service to members of the public. The facilities also were used to treat the Society’s animal and carry out sterilisations which since 1969, was compulsory if one adopted an SPCA pet.
Singapore underwent massive changes with the development of Housing Board Government high-rise flats. People were relocated from the kampongs into these flats and as a result countless pets, mainly cats and dogs were left abandoned and homeless.
The SPCA launched a special programme to collect animals from areas being cleared for development before occupants vacated their homes. The Ministry of national Development, the Primary Production Department (now AVA) and the Dog unit at the City Veterinary Centre, co-operated in this scheme to providing prior information on areas about to be demolished.
The work was particularly painful in that it involved the removal of owned animals from people forced to relinquish their pets because they were unable to relocate them.
1984 saw a change in location for the Singapore SPCA, 10 kilometers from the city at 31 Mount Vernon Road, the Orchard Road land having been acquired by the Government. The new offices and kennels is a big improvement for both staff and animals.
The SPCA has been very fortunate to be able to carry out its work over the years, thanks to the public’s generosity with donations and to the limited but constant stream of volunteers who come together and work to keep the cause going.
Promoting respect for animals and a caring attitude towards pets by their owners is a priority of SPCA Singapore. We hope in the long term, that this will lead to a significant reduction in the number of unwanted animals, thus saving us from having to destroy them.
Educational booklets on cat and dog have been produced along with leaflets on pet care for smaller animals which are distributed to schools, pet shops and veterinary surgeries. Articles on pet care have also been written in the newspaper promoting responsible pet ownership. There are two magazines published, catering for Senior and Junior members.
Up until the 1970’s the general public did not know or care much about the SPCA. Media participation in the 1980’s and 1990’s however, has been very good. SPCA has had pet care columns in the newspapers and many other articles featured. Television coverage has regularly highlighted SPCA-related topics such as abandonment and other forms of cruelty. The SPCA realises that without media support, animal welfare work would be so much harder due to problems that sometimes are not understood by members of the public.
The SPCA intends to reach out to more of the general public to gain the support that is needed to continue its work in the years to come.
Besides enhancing water supply, Singapore’s 16th and 17th reservoirs are also set to transform the landscape in northeastern Singapore, bringing waterfront living to the heartlands.
National water agency PUB celebrated this milestone recently. Created by the damming of Sungei Punggol and Sungei Serangoon, the Punggol and Serangoon Reservoirs will collect rainwater from estates and areas within Punggol and Sengkang, and parts of Hougang and Ang Mo Kio. Together with the Marina Reservoir, they increase the water catchment areas from half to two-thirds of Singapore.
Although Singapore receives an abundant amount of rainfall, it has limited land to collect the rainwater. PUB’s strategy has thus been to create estuarine reservoirs by damming the major rivers to collect and store as much of the 2400mm of rain that it gets annually. This led to the creation of unprotected and urbanised catchments in the 1980s, starting with Bedok and Lower Seletar Reservoirs. Today, Singapore has eight reservoirs collecting water from urbanised catchments in the densely populated city areas and residential towns.
Water from local catchments is a pillar of Singapore’s water sustainability strategy, along with imported water, high-grade reclaimed water branded as NEWater, and desalinated water. Collectively, these four sources of water are known as the ‘Four National Taps’, a long-term water supply strategy to ensure a diversified and sustainable water supply for Singapore in the years to come.
Besides enhancing water supply, the Punggol and Serangoon Reservoirs are set to transform the landscape in north-eastern Singapore. Envisioned as a ‘waterfront town of the 21st century’, Punggol Town will soon become a commercial and social hub, with a 4.2-km waterway that connects both reservoirs running through the estate and town centre. Residents can look forward to waterfront living in the heartlands with a myriad of attractive and lifestyle choices lined up along the banks.
Central to this is the Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters (ABC Waters) programme, a long-term blueprint to bring people closer to water through the creation of beautiful and vibrant waterscapes which at the same time provide opportunities for community bonding. Fifteen ABC Waters projects are now open while another three will be ready by the end of this year.
Located right in the midst of Punggol Reservoir, the ABC Waters project -- Sengkang Floating Wetland – links the Anchorvale Community Club to the Sengkang Riverside Park via a bridge on one side, and a boardwalk skimming the water surface on the other. While helping to keep the water clean by natural processes, the wetland also provides a habitat for fish, birds and other wildlife, enhancing the biodiversity there.
Lorong Halus Wetland along Serangoon Reservoir collects and treats water passing through the former landfill, preventing it from flowing into the reservoir. This helps safeguard the quality of water in Serangoon Reservoir. Like the Sengkang Floating Wetland, the Lorong Halus Wetland is developing into a natural habitat for wildlife over time. Members of the public can also go on the nature trails to learn more about wetland, the plants, and various wildlife that thrive there.
SINDA’s first satellite centre at Jurong Point has recently opened.
The SINDA Service Centre at Jurong Point Shopping Centre’s Community Hub brings services to the doorstep of Indian families living in the West. Residents of the Western part of Singapore no longer have to travel to Beatty Road (where SINDA office is located) to avail themselves of such services.
The Service Centre serves as a one-stop information and referral point for families. Senior citizens can benefit from IT facilities while children, youth and volunteers can look forward to educational and training activities at the newly opened centre.
Residents in Woodlands will soon be able to admire the night sky in the comfort of their neighbourhood Community Club (CC). Slated for completion in the first quarter of 2012, the new Admiral Garden CC will be the first ever CC to house an observatory for residents with a keen interest in astronomy.
The observatory deck at the CC, which will be shaped like a globe, will be an iconic landmark for Woodlands residents. The interior design of the CC also centres on a cosmology theme. Residents can look forward to new facilities such as seminar rooms, a culinary studio, karaoke room, exhibition corners, a rooftop garden and an observatory briefing room.
There are also plans to hold cultural courses such as tea appreciation and wine tasting amidst the lush greenery of the rooftop garden and science and astronomy exhibitions. The new CC will serve as a focal point for residents from all ages and backgrounds to come together, get to know each other and build social bonds within the community.
Singapore's first Indian Heritage Centre will open its doors in 2012. It will be located in Little India, at the junction of Clive Street and Campbell Lane, on a 2,000 square foot plot of land.
The government will provide most of the funding for the construction of the five-storey building and its operations. Besides serving as a ‘living’ platform for the Indian community, the new IHC is also expected to function as a showcase of Indian heritage for both Singaporeans and tourists.
NHB has commissioned the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) to organise a two-stage architectural design competition. The proposed site is the currently vacant state land with an area of 815.7 square metre located at the crossroads of Campbell Lane and Clive Street in Singapore.
The design brief requires that the scheme should represent contemporary architecture, besides providing a sense of Indian heritage. The new IHC should also strive to be all-encompassing and ensure representation and respect of all Indian communities and religions.
The IHC design should foster integration and accessibility; and it should be flexible to programmatic needs. Integration of innovative design and sustainable development and technology are some other requirements. The project will include the construction of the Indian National Army (INA) Historical Structure.
The design competition is open to all Singapore registered Architects. Foreign design consultants, who are registered within their own jurisdictions, may make submissions in collaboration with Singapore-registered architects. According to SIA, a statement of collaboration identifying the scope of responsibility of each party shall be submitted together with the Competition Package Collection Form.
The Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) is the national organisation representing architects in Singapore. Indian Heritage Centre (IHC), under the Heritage Institutions Division of the National Heritage Board, is shouldered with the responsibility of tracing the history of the Indian and South Asian community in the Southeast Asian region. A budget of $12 million has been allocated to the centre. The centre has been scheduled to open in 2013 and will feature small scale museum facilities as well as programming and educational spaces.

The Tampines Masterplan for 2015 was unveiled recently. The plan centred on the proposed development of a Tampines Town Hub - a vibrant place where Tampines residents can gather, learn, play and build stronger bonds.
The integrated town hub will be built at the current Tampines Stadium and Sports Hall site, and will be the first of its kind in Singapore. Aimed to be a one-stop lifestyle destination, residents can expect a wide range of facilities and services including a mega Community Club (CC), performing arts theatre, retail shops, food & beverage outlets, fun pool, karaoke rooms, futsal, flea markets and concerts, laser quest and a bowling alley. Major services such as the Tampines Regional Library, the HDB branch office, Town Council office and the Northeast Community Development Council will also be relocated to the new mega CC.
These facilities will help widen community outreach and deepen residents engagement. The Tampines town hub will also provide platforms for community arts programmes such as drama, music, dance and visual arts to grow and make these accessible to heartlanders.
The mega CC will offer a wider range of facilities, programmes and activities to more residents, and make the CC an appealing lifestyle centre bringing residents of different backgrounds together, with their families, friends and neighbours to strengthen bonds and friendships. To complement the launch of the largest integrated town hub in the Singapore heartlands, Tampines also created a website for Tampines residents to be kept informed and connected with their community and town developments. Other services and features offered on the website include applications for residents to pay their bills, shop on-line, have a chat with their fellow residents, as well as locate different services available in their town.
