The Glasgow School of Art Singapore, a leading institution for creative education and research in fine art, design and architecture is currently exhibiting the works of graduating students from its Communication Design and Interior programmes.
Among the exceedingly wide-ranging projects on show are a series of proposals by seven graduating Interior Design students to realise Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital’s design vision for an integrated nursing home and community hub at the 2016 Hospitals Design & Development Asia conference.
Proposal for the Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital by Chong Ee Ming
One of these projects, titled Designing Age: Bringing back history with a new experience by Chong Ee Ming, focuses on helping residents recall moments through a series of fun, spatial environments such as a beach setting. The design seeks to address the emotional needs of patients, creating opportunities and a comfortable environment for interaction and learning to occur.

Another proposal for Kwong Wai Shiu, titled Stimuli by Grace Chae Bo Sung, is for a self-contained world where users can be entertained with activities such as singing and dancing while also carrying out domestic tasks such as cooking and doing laundry. The space is inspired by homes of the 1960s, with the aim to provide a familiar setting to users aged 60 and above to help reignite their memories of the past.
