Entry Description

Driven by undesirability of this underground carpark space,
our design aims to alleviate the subterranean - ness of this
entrance drop off lobby by drawing on the influences of
nature

Not the literal nature as we know it, but a world of
abstracted one that distills essence of what constitutes
nature - be it the lines, forms, colours or textures of nature -
and weave them into a coherent world that evokes a sense
of being out in the open

Seating benches that recall the rock outcrops found on the
floors of forests ...flooring finishes and pattern that
reminisces stepping across stone ledges to get across river
creeks ...unsightly columns that are camouflaged into
avatar-like tree trunks that hint at the future of nature

By inextricably weaving these elements, we recreate an
'other worldliness' that temporarily suspends one from the
reality of being in an underground carpark, by hinting at the
world of being in a forest

In doing so, we hope to enlighten the lives of the average
dwellers for just 15min in their daily lives while they wait for
their daily buses, by letting them peep into the world of
nature, and future!
