Reflections at Keppel Bay among winners of new design award
The Building and Construction Authority, or BCA, has conferred its first Universal Design Mark Award to 26 buildings.
Among the 26 are Platinum winners Reflections at Keppel Bay, and the East Campus of United World College of South East Asia.
The award was introduced last October to encourage designs that make built environment more inclusive.
Reflections at Keppel Bay, for example, boasts elder- and family-friendly features and spacious resting areas. Each residential block also has a specially designed door for wheelchair users.
At United World College of South East Asia's East Campus, cultural motifs for its academic blocks help people find their way. Pedestrian and vehicular traffic are also carefully separated on the college grounds.
