MVRDV’s dynamic mixed-use proposal, developed in consultation with West 8 Urban Design & Landscape Architecture, arose from an understanding of the site’s unique history, its cultural and architectural significance, and its potential as a site of urban regeneration and densification in years to come.
Holland Village is a popular shopping and dining destination. On any given day, Lorong Mambong teems with locals and expatriates vying for a table at some of Singapore’s most renowned pubs and restaurants.
MVRDV sought to preserve and amplify this character through a proposal that is open, expandable and flexible in nature. The resulting masterplan, a double circulation loop that orbits the Hawker Centre, ties into surrounding pedestrian networks while maintaining the ‘backyard’ character and scale of the neighbourhood.
In its “formlessness”, Holland Village has provided an unsurpassed degree of urbanity, complexity and programmatic variety. This flexibility is characteristic of Holland Village
and, rather than the result of a top-down dictation, evolves from the interactions between a community of residents, business owners and visitors. In a similar manner, the architecture of Holland Village adapts to the demands of context and climate.
