Bedok Public Library
Designer: ONG&ONG Pte Ltd (Robert Brodeth)
Client: National Library Board
Category: Interior Design
Relocated to an adjacent building called Heartbeat@Bedok, a new integrated civic complex for the mature residential estate, the new Bedok Public Library is a test-bed for ageing-in-place. Besides elderly-friendly design features such as abundant handrails, the library also caters to the younger generation with child-height shelves and soft and non-slip carpets for the toddlers.
