Often void decks are left empty for future activities and development. we take a look at the highest demographics of using ground spaces – kids. Is there a way we can better cater these void decks spaces for them to use instead? Based on what we observe on-site. The only reason that the kids use ground-level spaces is that they want to head outside to the playground to play with their friends. Therefore, is only through an interest in “playing” that we can attract more kids and children alike to use these spaces. Thus, we take a look at how the interest in play has influenced their behavior in these neighborhoods. Discover the opportunity of other types of plays to cater in these void deck spaces rather than the focusing playground itself.

Play Structures

At first impression, it appears like a cluster of hills but just a little smaller in scale. These wide empty void deck spaces have allow opportunity of open shaded areas for play. Invites the idea of play can be any part of the day regardless of weather. The size of the design intervention is taken into consideration to allow a level of experience in the space. Giving the user “A ride of experience” allowing them to paint a picture of what these humps can be, allowing creativity to flow and having a sense of ownership in the space they are in.

The bumps

Generating ergonomic shapes that can be used for many different group ages as well as for different activities such as climbing, seating, lounging and more
Users in the space can gain a tactile learning experience in a building open to its surroundings. Activities that is experience develop the strength and motor skills, which can be integrated into learning and lifestyle.
Physical play is not delimited to certain times of day and activities to develop strength. and motor skills are likewise not separated from “normal” actions but integrated into the habitual motion of the user in space, especially children. Unusual spatial configurations in the within the ground level and the available facilities around it encourage new forms of play and socialisation—fostering a fitness to learn as well as to grow.
The intervention is of the design proposes not to separate the motions of play structures, but rather to integrate them into the circulation of the HDB ground level itself. Selected area contains with trampoline, tunnels, netting and seating for students and all ages to be a part of move in experimental and unconventional ways of exploring these spaces.
