City Square Mall

Owner : City Developments Limited

Project Details

City Square Mall, Singapore’s first green shopping mall, is conveniently located in the city fringe of Singapore and directly connected to Farrer Park MRT station. The mall positions itself as a family mall and a learning hub that provides opportunities for the community to take part in family-friendly activities and events. The mall is integrated with an outdoor park, known as City Green complete with two distinct playgrounds, which provides an ideal venue for 3-Generation (3G) families to interact and bond. There are ramps from all entrances and tactile markings leading from the MRT station and City Green to the mall, which make it accessible to persons of all abilities.

Through its careful selection, the mall ensures a good tenant mix and promotions to cater to the varied needs of families. Recognising that persons with disabilities, elderly, expectant mothers or parents with very young children may have unique requirements, the mall strives to upkeep its amenities to provide them with greater comfort, safety and convenience.

In 2010, City Square Mall was given the Gold award, the highest accolade for the BCA Universal Design Awards.

Project Details

Kampung Admiralty, a 11 storey complex which houses 104 studio apartments for elderly, medical and surgical services, childcare and eldercare centres, a community park, vegetable farm, a 900-seat hawker centre and retail outlets. As a single integrated development, it is Singapore’s first retirement community that promotes independent living for the elderly.

Key UD Features

  • The various programmes of the development supports and complements each other in providing a holistic living environment for elderly in this retirement community. The proximity to the services and amenities encourages elderly residents to disengage from reclusivity and step out of their homes. Elderly residents are also able to enjoy a healing environment through exploring the lush landscaping, roof-top vegetable and community garden.
  • The 900-seater hawker centre on the 2nd Storey is well-lit and well-ventilated with high roof and large fans that expels hot air efficiently. This environment is a natural choice for a comfortable and convenient destination for elderly residents to step out of their homes to gather and socialise for long hours over food and drinks. The hawker centre’s food options as well as a supermarket located in the basement draws the neighbourhood community from adjacent estates towards the development, adding another layer of community vibrancy to the place
  • To cater to the population of residents that would require increasing medical attention, the 3rd and 4th Storeys houses a medical centre that provides specialist care and other day surgery services targeted at gerontological care. Elderly residents enjoy the convenience and proximity, which serves as an incentive to seek the necessary medical treatment to sustain a higher quality of life.
  • The community park is located at the elevated deck at the 6th and 7th Storeys, complete with playground and exercise stations. These facilities complement the child care centre the senior care centre located adjacent to each other. When the children and elderly emerge from their respective centres to make use of the facilities, the park is transformed from a ‘space’ to a ‘place’ for inter-generational social interaction, creating an energetic and delightful environment for the elderly
  • The senior care, also known as the “active-ageing hub“, supports the elderly population and programmes of the development through a variety of services such as day care and rehabilitation programmes for those that require more medical attention
  • Within the apartments, fixtures and finishes are selected to be elder-friendly. These includes vinyl floors that are gives better traction to lessen the likelihood of falling, easy-to-operate retractable racks with indoor and outdoor options for clothes drying, induction hobs that eliminates risk of gas leakage. Each room is also fixed with an emergency pull cord which is linked to the senior care centre for immediate attention when activated

Mapletree Business City II

Mapletree Business City II

Owner : Mapletree Business City Pte Ltd
Architect : DCA Architects Pte Ltd

Project Details

Mapletree Business City II (MBC II), located at Alexandra Terrace, is a 4-block development, comprising a hybrid of three terraced low-rise blocks of 8, 6 and 5 storeys and one 30-storey tower block. MBC II completes MBC I as well as the rejuvenation of the Alexandra Business Precinct. The main synergy between the two phases is realized through the implementation of an interface of vast communal spaces which are accessible to not just the working community but also the public. MBC II is well-connected and accessible to the adjacent retail mall, ARC, and is also designed with a trail serving as a short cut towards Hort Park.

Key UD Features

  • The project challenges traditional business models to create a vibrant and sustainable corporate lifestyle of the future. The working spaces adopt a unique hybrid building form that allows tenants the option to expand both laterally and vertically, allowing high flexibility in the adaptations of spatial configuration according to different tenant needs over the years
  • MBC II completes the interface of ARC and MBC I, carefully connected through gentle level changes and sheltered walkways. This interface is an elevated deck that is segregated from vehicular traffic, providing sheltered, direct and uninterrupted pedestrian access to the adjacent development as well as the nearest MRT station, Labrador Park
  • The pedestrianized interface is lushly landscaped with ample seating provided for the working community and visitors to enjoy the healing environment. Children from the existing child-care centre of MBC I are able to experience and explore the spaces, thus adding another layer of vibrancy into the business park.
  • Connectivity across more than 100,000m2 of site took into consideration users’ circulation experience, and especially so in various weather conditions. Travellators were implemented along long paths of travel, allowing the option for the working community and visitors to take short breaks as they move towards their destinations. Rain screens with sensors have been installed at long pathways. During rainy weather, the screens are activated to enclose the paths, protecting users from wind-driven rain
  • Strategic use of materials, colours and sculptures help visitors to orientate and navigate around the site. It also helps the working community to familiarise with the working environment. One example is the use of distinct coloured cladding in the design of feature walls of each block. Each block offers through views into the car park to open up visibility. The claddings continue down into the car park levels, allowing users to easily identify their respective working locations. Another example is the integration of art and landscape which serves as markers for way-finding
  • MBC II is situated amidst nearby Parks; Labrador Park, Hort Park and Kent Ridge Park. Accessible pedestrian linkages are provided to facilitate connectivity between the development's sports amenities, shower facilities with adjacent parks and eco-trails to encourage work-life balance. These features offer respite for not just office tenants, but for all users who want to enjoy the communal space
  • Various social initiatives organized by Mapletree such as Youth Futsal Camp, lunch time health talks, weekday mass workouts etc. utilize the common facilities to engage the community comprising staff, tenants, beneficiaries supported by the developer and the general public

Architect : SAA Architects Pte Ltd

Project Details

Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 4 (T4) seeks to redefine the traveller experience with a focus on immersing each visitor in a stress-free, and all-inclusive environment. T4 offers visual, thermal and spatial comfort to users alongside streamlined check-in processes while maintaining its standards of security of the operational spaces. As a national gateway, T4 aims to make a positive first and last impression of Singapore to its visitors.

Key UD Features

  • Visual comfort for users is achieved through careful lighting control. The main atrium skylight, the “Central Galleria”, is integrated with daylight sensors to control the intensity of daylight entering the building. Depending on the time of day, the lighting condition within the building is calibrated to maintain a neutral condition in order to cater to travellers approaching from a different time zone
  • A start-to-end self-check-in option is introduced in T4 to promote travellers’ independence in the check-in process. Ample self-check-in scanners are located conspicuously at the Departure Hall, which are catered for all users, including persons of lower stature or wheelchair users. In consideration to weaker or elderly travellers, the self-service bag-drops are lowered to a 100mm height for minimal effort in the lifting of luggage
  • To ensure an efficient and smooth check-in journey, the layout of the self-check-in scanners and counters are intentionally orientated towards the carry-on and body scanning zone, allowing travellers to see and move towards the scanning zone intuitively after completing their bag-drop
  • The centrepiece of T4’s transit area is a Peranakan-themed Heritage Zone, which includes a shop house feature wall integrated with a digital display. Furnished with ample seating of various forms for children and adults, the Heritage Zone not only engages and entertains the traveller while awaiting their flight, it also serves as a meeting point and an identity marker of T4 for passengers to orientate and navigate
  • Thermal comfort for users is achieved through temperature sensors installed throughout the Terminal to monitor and ensure uniformity in overall thermal condition. The design team also anticipated that the tropical climate may be overwhelming for visitors from cooler and drier climate. As such, large fans have been installed at the outdoor Arrival drop off to help moderate the local temperature and humidity as visitors exit the Terminal
  • Designed with a kerb-less interface with the driveway, all users are able to experience a levelled access in and out of the Terminal which enhances travellers’ safety and ease in pushing and loading of their luggage into vehicles
  • Behind the scenes, the overall working conditions for the crew has been well thought through and catered for. For example, spot cooling is installed to introduce greater thermal comfort for the baggage handling crew. The sorting area is also painted in strong colours to create clear visual cues where the working environments require high attention from the handlers. Moving away from the typical conveyor system, the ICS (Individual Carrier System) is adopted, where each baggage is contained in a tray while being sorted. This improves tracking efficiency and safety for the handlers
  • T4 maintains a high standard of aesthetic integration, as shown through in the example of washrooms designed with concealed soap and paper dispensers beneath countertops and behind mirrors. To minimise efforts and improve working conditions, the carpentry incorporated pull out mechanisms for direct and simple refilling procedures for the crew, moving away from the conventional methods of bending down to access hard-to-reach storage spaces
