Our Tampines Hub

Everyday architecture that engages, enriches and empowers

A people-centric and inclusive community hub, Our Tampines Hub (OTH) is a pioneering model of an integrated community, sports and lifestyle hub, purposefully designed for the residents of Tampines.

This refreshing concept of integration brings about new dynamics in notions of shared economies, optimisation and productivity, as well as immense opportunities in inclusivity, richness and new synergies in the design of communal and social settings for the Tampines residents.

Its design was conceived through an intense participatory and engagement process with 12 public-sector stakeholders, together with residents of all ages and interest groups.

Key design exploration involved proposing alternative spatial organisation of clustering stakeholders and their facilities by programmatic synergies, expressed as interlocking volumes of differentiated materiality, weaved together by flowing streetscapes and green terraces.
With large numbers of agencies and their facilities housed under one roof, OTH serves as a one-stop destination that provides for a wide range of user, interest and age groups.

With large numbers of agencies and their facilities housed under one roof, OTH serves as a one-stop destination that provides for a wide range of user, interest and age groups. This relates back to its core aspiration to be an inclusive meeting and bonding place for the entire Tampines community.

The development will be an effective testbed of a more collaborative model for this whole-of-government approach. To ensure that the hub is active and relevant to the community, DPA, together with the stakeholders, have specifically developed an integrated operational team for OTH that focuses on organising of programmes throughout the year.
