PROJECTS Community Centre

Under a large continuous folding roof, the community centre is a placemaking intervention that will form part of the new mass housing and commercial quarter development in Kota Kemuning. The building offers flexible spaces with subtle detailing that invite different patterns of occupations and use. The layout is organised with small clusters of enclosed volumes arranged around wide terraces. There is no main entrance so visitors can approach it from all directions, even from the footpaths along the lake across the field.

The folding roof has a dynamic form that stretches from east to west continuously, protecting a series of enclosed and open spaces below it. The deep overhangs of the roof along the northern edge—combined with minimal columnar support—create a multitude of open yet shaded spaces for different activities.
