Making the streets a destination in Singapore
Located over 60ha in an important and highly visible location in Singapore, the Bayshore precinct will house around 12,000 families. The new development is set on the waterfront amongst tropical greenery with new strong public transport connections to the rest of Singapore.
With a courtyard-and-tower housing typology, Singapore's Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) aspires to bring people back to the streets with a network of courtyards being used like the “common living room”. Where roads were once dedicated to vehicles travelling from one place to another, this vision sees the streets as vibrant public spaces and places to visit in their own right.
Our Hong Kong studio has been appointed to work with Atkins (SNC-Lavalin) in providing sustainability masterplanning design services for the project, creating a number of diverse micro-communities tied together by pedestrian-friendly connections.
