It’s Orchid Bowl’s sixth outlet in Singapore.
Singapore's commercial interior design company, Kyoob-id, has recently completed an interior design and build project for a new bowling centre for Orchid Bowl at SAFRA Punggol. The bowling centre is Orchid Bowl's sixth outlet in Singapore and is a welcoming addition to the sustainable “live-work-play” spaces in the transurban mixed-use community in Punggol.
Kyoob-id drew inspiration for the design from the vision of a waterfront city for Punggol, a town located at the north-eastern part of Singapore. Punggol represents the new concept in housing for 21st century living. It is supported by an integrated transport network, clustered amenities, sustainable housing features, and scores of commercial, social, and recreational facilities, replete with a waterway running through.
Kyoob-id’s senior designer, Nut Ruangsorn, explains that the plan is to retain a semblance of Punggol’s rich history and blend it with its dynamic vision of a waterfront city as seamlessly as possible. In addition, they want to bring the external environment such as natural foliage that exists outside the centre’s walls into the interior.
Punggol was a fishing village and kampong for the early Malay and Chinese immigrants who settled there. Fishing, poultry farming, as well as fruit and vegetable planting were the main sources of income back then. The rivers that bounded the town provided the catch for fishermen who hawked them at the marketplace nearby. Today, the town is being developed as the future of housing with waterway features and sustainable concepts among other exciting features.
References to the town's past such as fruit planting were reinterpreted via modern perspectives, resulting in a refreshingly futuristic and aesthetic design for the centre.
A colour palette of orange – for its reference to Orchid Bowl’s corporate identity – as well as blue for its connotation of waters and riverbeds is chosen. The futuristic interior design is aesthetically refreshing as it is one of the first bowling centres in Singapore to have adopted this look. The innovative design is complemented with exciting new features such as the centre’s new bowling system from QubicaAMF, providing customers with a state-of-the-art and unique bowling experience.
