The public realm in Holland Village proposes a series of alleys and passages in a relaxed geometry intersecting at random angles. Taking their cue from the existing curving road form of Lorong Mambong, they extend and complete the loop of circulation of the village, while also meandering around the entire precinct. At the points of intersection, larger spaces are created to form quaint piazzas of varied shapes and definition.
Within the public realm, there are different levels of roofscape offering a variety of amenities. An Urban Farm serves and connects the local population. A Village Green creates flexible communal space with a responsive water feature allowing for multiple functions— weekend Farmers’ Markets, food truck events, or for a wide array of performances, displays, and other community programming. Additionally the design includes multiple public and private gardens to be enjoyed by both the permanent and transient population living in the development. Art installations by local and international artists are placed in prime public locations throughout the Village.
