Eldercare Centre

The eldercare is built for the main purpose of catering to Singapore’s ageing population, which is a growing problem today. The margin between the number of youth and the number of elderly is growing larger, and people in Singapore are sending their parents and grandparents to Johore or old folks’ home when they are unable to look after them at work or when they are overseas. The purpose of the eldercare centre is to provide a place for the elderly to go to fro daily activities, and is something like a community centre for elderly. 
The concept behind the colours and design of the building is to cater to the common problem of dementia in Singapore and the world. This problem is estimated to become more serious as time progresses, and tonality of colours has been shown to help the elderly recognise and remember locations.
