The upgrading works of Tampines West Community Club give a brand new identity with a balance of community, memory and a sense of place.
Inspired by the angular shapes of origami and the colour of existing pitch roof tower, the bold red, brown and grey panels create a visually stimulating façade of the newly erected basketball court. The covered public space provides much-needed shade, plenty of ventilation through the porous façade and fans on the ceiling, and functions also as an event space.
Our simple addition of a covered public space fulfils multiple functions. It provides a totally new identity to the community club and creates a large event space for large functions. The large fans and skylight create a sheltered space for basketball and provide a spill out space for the surrounding programmes. This forms a vibrant public space where people are encouraged to meet and for friendships to form.
