Chua Chu Kang MKPL’s Investigation
In their award-winning Singapore Rail Corridor proposal for the Housing Parcel at Chua Chu Kang (CCK) for high-density affordable housing, MKPL explores how the ecology and green experience of the Singapore Rail Corridor can be enhanced, whilst demonstrating the possibility of co-existence of the development with greenery. The scheme provides innovative solutions as a response to the complexities of the site. By advocating a multi-land use approach, the proposal demonstrates how living and recreational spaces can be combined seamlessly with infrastructure requirements. In developing the buildings for CCK, MKPL also explores a super-highrise residential typology that takes on challenges of scale, sense of community and liveability in a high-density environment.
