Project Description

Dementia Care Centre for Seniors, Ang Mo Kio, Singapore

We were invited to participate in a limited Design & Build competition to transform an existing facility at the ground floor of a public housing block into a Dementia Care Centre for Seniors.

We focussed to design an environment that would help to maintain the self-identity and confidence of the clients, develop their sense of attachment and belonging to the centre, and growth in their sense of inclusion, occupation and contribution to the society. We seek to achieve a clarity in spatial organization and sense of orientation, provide flexible spaces that is secure and efficient despite the requirement of shared uses when the need arises. We also employed simple but effective strategies to maximize natural lighting into the spaces while providing any required privacy.
