HomeTeamNS Khatib Clubhouse
A Home Within The Nation’s Heartland
HomeTeamNS is not just a recreation club but an institution meant to honour the contributions of the Singapore Police Force and Singapore Civil Defence Force — the guardians of our nation. Thus, guided by perceptive principles that reinvigorate the quintessential constructs of a home — security, warmth and trust — the architecture for HomeTeamNS Khatib Clubhouse refreshes the ambience of sharing and bonding; expressed by the articulate threading of connections and the dissolution of fortified perimeters and frontages.
The spatial tone of intricacy and subtlety established by the visual definitions of tartan staggering and the slender swelling of columns serves to unite the HomeTeam community.
The design rethinks the basic function of circulation pathways, elevating it from a purely utilitarian space to an experience layered with narratives, emotions and purpose. It is through such subtle gestures that its design contributes both actively and passively in creating a more enriching experience for our users.
More than just a recreational project, HomeTeamNS Khatib Clubhouse is a home that sheds its barriers to reach out and connect with its surrounding environment and community; a home that recognises her protectors and shares their emotions.
