Optimizing Singapore’s Land Use
Singapore has a long and successful history of land optimization and intensification since its independence over a half century ago. To adjust for economic and population growth, the city-state continues to perform reclamation to ensure its industrial and commercial sector will flourish. Since Singapore’s first masterplan in 1958, each land use has been articulated and appropriated for specific usage with the exception of one: the island’s interior reserves. When seeing Singapore as a whole, large green swaths of land within the Western and Central regions of the island are dominantly used for passive open spaces, military facilities and storage. They are delineated from the urban fabric by major freeways, accessible only at discrete locations. These reserves have not been optimized to the same degree as the island’s developed land and remain underutilized.

The olive is a dynamic and unique residential development that unfolds behind the leafy rise of Goodwood Hill along the tree lined Balmoral Road. The site is constrained and flat in aspect. The challenge for landscape was how to make best use of the limited space in order to create useable external areas, maximise views, amenities and planting to enhance the development’s residential offer, and provide an environmental enhancement appropriate for the surroundings and district context.
