NATIONAL DESIGN CENTRE | Singapore
The proposal for the National Design Centre is a showcase of innovation and encouragement in the possibilities of design. It forms a unique contribution to the urban fabric in the conservation district of Bras Basah, regenerating an existing structure to form a diverse flexible space for interaction and learning.
The design inserts a composition of four translucent platonic boxes, cantilevering and overlapping to form an interconnected series of volumes for both public and private uses. The composition occupies a strategic location within the existing building envelope facing Victoria Street and opens internally to a central atrium, drawing public inward to activate the central courtyard.
