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.

Thrive, the first gym opened by MetaPhysic Fitness, is located in the Tiong Bahru area, about a minute by foot from Tiong Bahru Market.
MetaPhysic Fitness was borne out of a rejection of conventional fitness dogma, that often focuses solely on aesthetic appeal. Instead, they choose to train the body to function as a unit, as it functions in daily life, and in most sports, as it is supposed to function. They focus on natural human movement patterns. They train to improve movement efficiency, fitness levels, strength levels, and overall health. More than anything, they train to improve the quality of one’s life in general.
MetaPhysic Fitness is not a new method of training. They didn’t invent anything revolutionary or groundbreaking, nor will they ever try to make that claim. They just subscribe to training methods that have been largely forgotten in the mess created by the globo-gyms of today. They first identify imbalances and work to correct them. They believe in pain-free before fat-free, and in strength that matters before strength for show. Instead of shallowly focusing on fat loss and muscle gain, they choose to focus on training the body in the ways it is supposed to be trained, in ways where fat loss and lean muscle growth is inevitable, anyway.
Also important to them is providing a safe environment to train in, where egos are left at the door, where you don’t have to worry about, be turned off by, or be intimidated by the big bloated guy grunting and yelling for attention as he does bicep curls, or the unhealthily thin model-wannabe on the elliptical who looks at you with judging eyes. To them, health is holistic, not just physical, and people like that are not good for your health.
Don’t get them wrong, they like when people push so hard they grunt and groan, and they like training good-looking people – It is the attitude that is commonly seen at commercial gyms that they don’t agree with. Ultimately, they hope to inspire the pursuit of mastery of your own body, beyond physical appeal, however small or large your chosen version of mastery is. They believe that if they help you focus on this, your physique and health will have no choice but to improve, and you’ll have no choice but to enjoy your life more.
They believe that the human body is supposed to move freely, so that’s how they train. They believe in science and research, so they constantly keep up-to-date. In general, they correct imbalances, train all 3 fitness-related energy systems (similar to how an athlete trains), and use a variety of tools and methods to get it done in a fun and challenging way. Expect to squat, lunge, swing, toss, twist, throw, jump, lift, press, push, pull, row, run, thrust, drag, heave, haul, sprint, hop, skip, snatch, jerk, stretch, rotate, stabilize, bend, resist, slam, and grip...among other things!
Tools they like to use include: barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, sandbags, climbing rope, thick rope, heavy rope, sleds, plates, suspension trainers, kickboxing/martial arts basics, pulling bars, resistance bands, macebells, swinging clubs, bodyweight movements, sandbells, weight vests, medicine balls, and plyometric boxes.
Touch the Toes is an eco-friendly yoga/fitness apparel and lifestyle shop on Arab Street.
Everything is organic, recycled or up-cycled. Clothing is not only beautiful, it's super comfortable and kind to our planet.
Go chill in their shophouse with yummy probiotic chocolate bars. Play their piano, adopted from the Salvation Army. Or simply kick back in the armchairs & have a chat with them :)
Check out some useful tips on how to make your workout kit more eco-friendly!
Tip 1 - Carry a reusable water container - the gym will sell you bottled water, but it’s expensive and wasteful! Great tip: add a couple drops of essential oil to your water for flavour and an added health boost! But make sure it’s therapeutic grade! We especially love: Young Living’s lemon oil.
Tip 2 - Wear something comfortable, pretty and eco-friendly!
Tip 3 - Most gyms provide plastic bags for your post-workout gear - carry your own reusable baggie and say no to plastic bags!
Tip 4 - Pack some organic toiletries - Touch The Toes favorite: "Intelligent Nutrients" (www.intelligentnutrients.com/)
Tip 5 - Stash a yummy post workout treat - Ombar probiotic chocolate bars! They’re healthy, organic and delicious!

Jurong Central Park is a new 8-ha regional park in the Jurong West area and is the first in Singapore to have life-sized board-game features in a park. Situated across the Boon Lay MRT Station, the park is accessible via the Jurong and Jurong West Park Connectors. The park is also located next to the upcoming new Safra Clubhouse in Jurong West.
The life-sized Snakes and Ladders playground and Ludo Garden were developed based on the traditional indoor children's board-games enjoyed by many internationally. Visitors can now enjoy the games outdoors using the dice tower built in the park for game play. The life-sized games were developed to add a new dimension to the play experience using greenery, sculpted terrains and various play equipment to fulfil diverse aspirations for play in Singapore.
The plants and trees selected for planting at the Snakes and Ladders playground include lush foliage such as the Calathea lutea and Raphis excelsa. When mature, the trees will provide visitors with the experience of playing in a jungle setting. Colourful plants were also selected for planting in the Ludo Garden, to complement the Ludo game which uses bright colours for different playing teams.
Various types of aquatic plants can be found in the wetland to complement the existing plants at site to bring visitors closer to nature. The park was designed to retain its existing wetland as a habitat for wildlife species and dragonflies. Two species of dragonfly have been spotted at the wetland - Crocothemis servilia (Red Darter) and Potamarcha congener (Orange-streaked Dragonfly). The bright colours of the dragonflies add a beautiful contrast to the green vegetation background of the wetland. Yellow bitterns and pacific swallows have also been spotted. As the wetland becomes more established over time, it will serve as a habitat to a greater number of wildlife species and continue to help bring nature back to the urban environment.
Apart from the games and wetland, Jurong Central Park also sports an event lawn, a 2km cycling and jogging track, fitness corner, benches and shelters for visitors.

Vivafit, a market-leading women’s gym from Europe, is getting ready to open the doors of its first Singapore franchise in Tanjong Pagar Plaza on Monday. Having led over 40,000 women worldwide to lose weight, Vivafit is now set to help Singaporean women get fit and develop healthy habits in bite-size 30-minute express workouts.
Cecile Jamoulle-Ogren, General Manager and Master Franchisee, Vivafit Singapore said: “Like a lot of women out there, I have always dreaded going to the gym and always had an excuse for not going. The Vivafit concept is amazing because it takes away all those excuses and makes it easy and enjoyable to get in shape. Our workouts are great for women of all ages and all fitness levels. They are also designed to fit with the busiest of schedules. We offer a complete fitness package in a friendly and welcoming environment.”
Vivafit offers members a fun and fast way to get fit and lose weight. At the core of the programme is a 30-mintue circuit made up of 20 stations combining hydraulic machines and recovery platforms designed to deliver a total body workout. Because the circuit is short, a workout is easy to squeeze in before work or on a lunch break. Gym-goers also can jump in at any time which means that members can set their own schedules. In addition to the circuit, Vivafit offers customized 35-minute group exercise classes designed by Les Mills, a world leader in group fitness programmes. The group exercise classes – Bodyvive, Bodybalance and Pilates – will feature new choreography, routines and music every three months to keep classes fresh.
Not only concerned with the effort members put in at the gym, Vivafit offers a total fitness solution. Members will have access to health tips, nutritional advice and recipes dished out by trainers in the gym and on the company’s Facebook page.
Vivafit memberships are designed to replace the need for a personal trainer at a fraction of the cost. On joining, members are asked to set fitness goals and Vivafit trainers work with each member to achieve these over time. Because membership is limited at each outlet, Viviafit is a place where everyone not only knows your name but also your fitness goals. Trainers at the gym know members so well that they are able to offer personal instruction and encouragement to everyone throughout circuit training and other classes.
To ensure that members stay on track towards achieving their health and fitness dreams, Vivafit will track each woman’s progress month on month. If that’s not enough to get you to the gym, you can expect to get a reminder call from your friendly Vivafit representative if you skip out on exercise for ten consecutive days.
More than just a gym, Vivafit will also encourage its members to get to know one another through social events outside of the outlets. Creating a community around each fitness club will mean that members are guaranteed to see friendly faces every time they head for a workout and they will encourage each other to work towards fitness goals. All of this is delivered in a safe and non-judgmental haven where you won’t find any men or even mirrors for that matter.
With plans to open 25 franchises in the next three years and 100 by 2020, Vivafit will soon be wherever you are whenever you need a fitness friend.

Yoga is known to restore vitality, heal and help prevent a range of common chronic ailments. Best of all, it is accessible to everyone: anyone can begin to practice yoga postures, regardless of current levels of strength or degrees of flexibility. The alchemy of hatha yoga is only augmented by practising yoga postures in a hot room. Add heat to the environment, and along with the sweat, breath and development of a foundation, you find the elixir of life within yourself. Heat aids the stretching process while challenging the focus of the mind, enhancing the transformational experience of yoga.
When you begin devoting time to yourself through yoga practice, you find a harmonious merger with mind, body and soul which lifts the inner self thereby radiating a gift of spiritual love. Let yoga exercise your heart not with a physical workout alone, but by giving you the energy to reach out with kindness and compassion to raise the spirits of everyone around you.
