Visual Spaces was invited to explore and conceptualize an under utilized outdoor area at level 4 of a building block in Singapore University of Technology & Design (SUTD). Out client’s intention is to convert this space into an outdoor events area.


Existing Outdoor Space at Building 3, Level 4 of SUTD.

Visual Spaces conceptualized this space to blend in with the existing lush greenery environment exposed to the Sun and planters. A designated space to conduct evening sessions of department gatherings or an afternoon of breakout sessions outdoor would be inspiring and informal. Adding more greens to this area, synthetic grass are applied on the floor. Parasols are added to provide shades from the Sun and custom outdoor ottomans to complete the styling of this space.

Let’s explore the process of creating this space:


Installation of drainage cells for synthetic grass on designated area.

Considering this as an outdoor space exposed to rain, drainage cells are applied and laid on the existing floor to allow drainage from rains and cleaning of the raised synthetic grass. After drainage cells are installed, synthetic grass are then installed on top.
