G8A Architecture & Urban Planning:榜鹅水道落台式住宅在展望未来的同时,也回顾了过去,清晰地描绘了21世纪可持续发展的组团式住宅蓝图,也标志着新加坡早期的社区自豪感和认同感的精神回归。

G8A Architecture & Urban Planning:Looking to the future whilst looking back to the past, the Punggol Waterway Terraces form a blueprint for 21st century sustainable mass housing and mark a return to Singapore’s original ethos of community pride and identity.



最初的SIT公共性住宅是对热带气候的适应,是一种当代的简洁的现代主义建筑。这些建筑的设计远早于空调的出现,因而需要充足的交叉通风,需要设置挑檐结构来遮阴,与此同时,朝向的选择也需要避免午后炽热的阳光。20世纪70年代初,当第一批大型住宅在Queenstown建成时,这种 “必需的热带现代主义设计 “的混合建筑风格,标志着一个新的独立的新加坡城市风貌的形成。

The original SIT public housing blocks were tropical adaptations of contemporary clean-lined modernism. As they were designed well before the advent of air-conditioning, the apartments required cross-ventilation, they were shaded by overhangs, and were orientated to avoid the heat of the afternoon sun. When the first large-scale HDB blocks were built in Queenstown in the early 1970s, that ‘tropical-necessity modernist-design’ architectural hybrid symbolised a newly independent Singapore.




As Singapore grew more affluent and as global architectural fashions changed, those heroic tropical-modernist forms were to quietly disappear. They were replaced by an architecture that itched to assert Singapore’s worldliness, but the designs became increasingly generic, many of the developments were implicitly anti-social, and the structures were unsustainably non-tropical.




However, in the face of global warming and the loss of community identity, the pendulum has swung back to the principles and the spirit of tropical-modernist design, especially in the field of public housing. The sheer mass and the fundamental design elements of the Waterway Terraces are not hidden, they instead are presented to the public and the residents as an unequivocal response to the 21st century requirements for a sustainable, yet enjoyable, high-density urban lifestyle.




A matrix of planning strategies provides passive climatic control – cross ventilation and shading from the sun – whilst maximising the orientation of the apartments towards the waterway that bisects the site.



​在相连的六边形平面中,建筑的 “手臂 “朝向水道呈梯台式向下层层跌落,使所有住户都能享受良好的景观,并与邻里相连。起伏的‘Juliet’阳台使公寓避免了阳光的直射和雨水的侵扰,形成了一种有装饰感的遮阳设施。

Set upon linked hexagonal plans, the ‘arms’ of the blocks step down to the waterway as terraces, so all the residents have a direct experiential connection with the landscape and with their neighbourhood. The apartments are shielded from the heat and the rain by undulating ribbons of ‘Juliet’ balconies, which perform as decorative sun-shading devices.

A continuous no-dead-end corridor runs the length of every floor in each of the two sectors, and by virtue of an ingenious planning manoeuvre, the double-loaded corridors actually facilitate cross-ventilation and vertical cooling, instead of blocking the airflow to the apartments. Due to the hexagonal block plans, three corridors are angled at 120 degrees from the lift cores to serve apartments grouped in threes. Each apartment is directly ventilated by the lift-core breezeways and by voids inserted between the groupings.




Waterway Terraces滨水落台式住宅作为名副其实的零能耗组团式住宅的实验性项目,对亚洲城市的可持续发展有着至关重要的作用。

The fundamental principles of passive tropical design have been inventively recalibrated and then expressed at a monumental scale, whilst the contextually-attuned planning and massing have reintroduced a sense of communal identity at a human scale.

Waterway Terraces is a genuine precursor to the zero-energy mass housing that will be essential for the continued growth of Asia’s cities.
