DESIGN CONCEPT
CONSERVATION, PRESERVATION AND INNOVATION BY: RETAINING AND RECYCLING

RETAIN (Conserve & Preserve):

  • Retain original island as it is with minimal disturbance
  • Plants are propagated and planted with minimal introduction of ‘imported’ plants
  • The design allows visitors to explore and experience the island in its original rurality, away from the bustling city, and into an adventure of rustic Singapore.

RECYCLE (Innovation):

  • Overpopulation of Casuarina equisetifolia.They are the most abundant and invasive.
  • Casuarina trees branches are recycled for benches as well as processed into timber planks for the boardwalk
  • Existing concrete blocks lining estuary south banks are recycled for estuary crossing and estuary mouth debris screen
