NTU PIONEER AND CRESCENT HALLS
With sustainable design as key focus and utilising existing topography, the Pioneer and Crescent Hall student residence function as more than a place to rest and recover; but as a wetland, surrounded by native landscape in a distinctive setting. This creates a habitat for nature and man-made elements to sensitively exist in a dynamic equilibrium.
Built elements supported on stilts raised above the landscape, weaves its way in and through structures seamlessly. Ponds and streams provide a perfect setting for outdoor classrooms, and student interaction at outdoor seating decks, gazebos, boardwalks and the open amphitheater. An experiential trail interweaves through the lush natural landscape and strategically pause at various scenic points, decorated by pavilions and breakout decks meant to provide reprieve to the goers and dwellers.
The fusion of landscape and architecture at NTU Pioneer and Crescent Halls creates a spatial symbiosis between man and nature, resulting in a nurturing holistic environment that strikes the perfect equilibrium between study and play, rest and rejuvenation. The sensible design strategy represents a unique opportunity to create a cohesive, inclusive and an immaculate oasis, amidst a vibrant campus life.
