Geylang Serai Cultural Belt

Facts

Location Client Completion
Singapore Wisma Geylang Serai 2023

Project details

Our competition-winning design for this important cultural project in Singapore, reimagines the popular Geylang Serai cultural belt into a modern, vibrant place for local people and visitors. The area will be rejuvenated so that visitors can make use of new cycling lanes, sheltered areas and green spaces, and a vibrant festive plaza will offer flexible space for meetings, events and entertainment.

The site is enriched with Malay culture and heritage and has progressively evolved into a modern community neighbourhood through urban transformation. By designing in spaces that connect the modern neighbourhood with the heritage of the area, we aim to create a new cultural belt where multiple cultures and generations can thrive, feel a real sense of arrival, and utilise smart technology to make their way around a beautiful, well organised and successful shopping district.

Our inclusive design partner, Human Space, provided peer review of the design concepts from the perspective of inclusion and accessibility. This included considerations to resolve grade changes to enhance accessible paths of travel, design of comfortable and dynamic outdoor furniture systems, the incorporation of innovative smart wayfinding systems such as positioning technology, and in-ground pavement lighting sensors to enhance safety and pedestrian flow.
