A winning entry from a competition, design for this dedicated youth space is porous and organic, allowing for multiple uses and entry points. Set amidst shady trees, activity spaces are exposed for spontaneous interactions. A curved hexagonal cladding at the top gives the space an extra edge.
The challenge was to design a space that met youths’ needs and could be an iconic urban space. The approach was to create transitional spaces that could cater to changing uses. The design also opened up the circulation for free flowing movements, reflecting the vibrancy of youths.
