ActiveSG Park @ Jurong Lake Gardens West

Commercial / Landscape

Nestled within the Jurong Lake Gardens, ActiveSG Park explores is an experiment in integrating sports programmes within a natural park setting. Constructed out of bare-finish reinforced concrete, the main structure is intended as a contrast that, in turn, directs visitors’ attention towards nature, while enabling the architectural form to remain plastic and to express the facility’s biophilic intent. The deliberate use of curves at the edge of the pool is a throwback to the nostalgic days of swimming in lakes; a reference to the ‘Kampong living’ of old and the site’s history as part of a swamp.
