Resisting the Whitewash

Singapore


The project speculates what Singapore’s public housing might look like if reconfigured around the objects and furnishings of single women; addressing a niche of feminist research through the criticism of the conventional home typology.

Co-housing seeks to alleviate the specific burdens faced by these women through the sharing of domestic labour and caregiving duties, with collective communal areas providing support, more space, and more flexible space for activities outside of those bound to the prescribed ‘living room’.

It questions the need for large-scale demolition, extending the lifespan of the block through strategic removal of precast components and a series of new interventions, whilst exploring the potential for more inclusive forms of living in a standardised landscape.
