East Coast Park enjoys significant physical, social and cultural presence in the hearts of many locals and foreign visitors. The rejuvenation sought to achieve two things: firstly, to develop a comprehensive design guide ranging from urban design to wayfinding. This was to create a sustainable design identity that provides direction for downstream redevelopment works of the park and its wider surroundings. Secondly, three nodes along the coastal park were selected for redevelopment to embody these new guidelines and set the tone for the future of the park.
Central to the objective was to reduce and redistribute the commercial built-up area within the park so that more opportunities may be introduced for other park activities and landscaping—to promote interactions that respond to each site’s genius loci. This was also motivated by the need for increased visual connection to the sealine for commuters traveling along the abutting East Coast Parkway expressway. The brief also required careful incorporation of existing flora and the reuse of existing services and built structures. In doing so, the development is Greener and the fond memories that park over the decades could be retained.
