SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - Unveiled in 2017, Our Tampines Hub (OTH) is Singapore’s first integrated community and lifestyle hub and features facilities such as a 30-lane bowling centre, an arts theatre, a five-storey library, a festive mall, and a community club.
Conceptualised by the People’s Association (PA), OTH represents a new model of community-focused development. But beyond this, OTH is also a symbol of the evolving scope of landscape architecture, says Yvonne Tan, director of DP Green.
DP Green was the landscape architect behind OTH. With 179,759 sq ft of landscape area, Tan and her team had to liaise with OTH’s 12 government agencies to come up with a design that was in line with the PA’s vision of creating a sense of community.
