About Our Tampines Hub

Our Tampines Hub (OTH) is Singapore’s first and largest integrated community and lifestyle hub, catering to the needs of over 225,000 Tampines residents and the eastern region of Singapore.

With People’s Association as the lead agency, OTH serves 12 stakeholders and offers more than 30 community, sports, cultural, civic and lifestyle facilities integrated together over a site area of 5.7 hectares. It boasts a floor area of 120,000 sqm along with a build-up of 232,000sqm.

Town Square

The development is guided by three principles: resident-centricity, optimisation of resources and infrastructure, as well as encouraging community ownership through resident engagement.

As a resident-centric development, the 5 “E”s of a participatory design process was employed from the start to ensure purposeful inclusion of the community in the design process.

Engage: Create opportunities for two-way exchanges between stakeholders and residents through social media, focus groups and block parties;

Enrich: Enhance information exchanged between the project team and community so short term inconveniences are better managed against the long term benefits for the community;

Empathy: Being sensitive and conscious toward aspirations of the community, thereby prioritising collective needs and wants;

Empower: The long term sustenance of a development of this scale means engendering a sense of ownership amongst residents through participation;

Evaluate: The ongoing process of constantly taking stock and engaging with residents to ensure continual refinement of the hub.

Tampines Kindness Movement

The Tampines Kindness Movement (TKM) is an offshoot of the Singapore Kindness Movement and focuses on building a community culture that practices graciousness toward neighbour and environment. OTH is the crucible for the TKM and supports this by promoting ground-up initiatives of Tampines residents with its Ambassadors i.e. volunteers, across different facets of its operations.

The objective is to engender in all visitors a sense of responsibility toward building this culture because everyone plays a part in contributing toward the creation of a kinder and more gracious culture toward each other and the environment.
