 Singapore Sports Hub

Singapore Sports Hub

In June 2014 Singapore celebrated the opening of Asia’s first integrated sports, leisure, entertainment and lifestyle destination – the Singapore Sports Hub. Located on a stunning, central, 35-hectare waterfront site, Sports Hub provides a unique ecosystem of sporting, retail and leisure spaces, at the pivot between Singapore’s expanding city centre and the wider public community.

Sports Hub is a key project in the Government of Singapore’s urban redevelopment and sports facilities master plan – ‘Sports Singapore Vision 2030’ – promoting a more sustainable, healthy and active society at all levels of participation, nation-wide. By providing premier venues for major sports events, and inviting and inclusive public destination spaces, the Sports Hub is an elite world class sports destination that encourages everyday public participation throughout the year.

Building on this vision, Sports Hub precinct master plan has been designed to make the very most of the site’s strategic location and to create a new landmark destination in terms of space, form and quality of experience.

In terms of movement, the extensive walkable precinct at Sports Hub links directly to local pedestrian and cycle networks and to Singapore’s island-wide park connector system, providing excellent connectivity to the wider city centre waterfront, to Gardens by the Bay and to surrounding residential areas. The precinct master plan creates a sequence of connected public spaces, scaled for both every day and major event modes and providing a very high quality of experience.

Around Sports Hub precinct of public spaces, from the waterfront and MRT connections to the raised ‘sports promenade’, a diverse and intense mix of sporting, community and leisure uses unfold, providing many options for both athlete and spectator alike. The whole precinct is unified by a consistent philosophy and design approach to landscape, shade and shelter and lighting, providing levels of comfort and quality of experience appropriate to Singapore’s tropical climate and public expectations. Key to the success of the master plan is the way in which it orientated buildings and key public spaces to establish views back to the centre of Singapore and to the city’s famous skyline.
