Design Excellence
Architect : Housing and Development Board (HDB)
Clementi Sport Hall was designed by me when I worked in HDB in the 1980s
the construction was handled by another architect after I left

CITATION - SIA ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN AWARD 1991
on Clementi Sports Hall by Housing and Development Board

The dramatic form of the building is entirely appropriate to its setting with the Ayer Rajah Expressway on the south and the parking plaza on the north. The simple sculptural form is sensitively related to surrounding developments allowing for a harmony of geometries and sympathetic ground treatment.

The grammatical permutation of forms is reinforced by the choice of materials and the detailing of the junctioning of the different building elements and the use of the louvred facade cladding.


The entrance. A building with strong geometry.


The setting....it sits on a higher level with granite walls flanking the entrance path


A formal simplicity is evident
