Coming to HDB Hub for an appointment? Make sure you pop by the LIVINGSPACE, HDB’s refreshed visitors’ gallery!

Comprising 8 themed spaces with interactive exhibits, the LIVINGSPACE takes you on a journey to experience the transformation of Singapore’s public housing over the years.

Here’s a sneak peek before your visit!

The HomeScape exhibition space showcases panoramic views of the HDB heartland on a mega video screen. Immerse yourself in the 7-minute music show, and see Singapore’s public housing landscape from a brand new perspective.  

Walk through the Journey Space, where an interactive video wall features key moments from Singapore’s public housing story. Across from it, a visually arresting photo montage traces the evolution of the heartland in the last 6 decades.

The essence of HDB living is captured through the eyes of Singapore’s younger generation in this beautiful mural titled ‘Impressions of Home’ by the students from Pathlight School.

Learn interesting facts and figures on HDB’s various towns at the Plan Space, and find out how HDB plans for well-designed and sustainable towns. A variety of tactile exhibits such as 3D models and video shows make it a fun space for kids too.

Keen to find out more about HDB’s research and development efforts? The Eco Space shows you how HDB develops cutting-edge solutions to create a smart and more liveable environment for residents. Take a closer look at HDB’s urban innovations and sustainability solutions that have been rolled out in HDB towns, such as the floating wetland systems deployed at My Waterway @ Punggol.

A multi-touch showcase at the Create Space helps visitors understand more about Singapore’s successful public housing programme from its key policies to housing options. Also, discover how HDB has continuously rejuvenated its towns, such as Toa Payoh, to meet residents’ needs!

Cohesive communities are part of the backbone of HDB towns. At the Share Space, learn about HDB’s programmes and policies that keep the community spirit alive. Test your knowledge of HDB towns just for fun!

Snap a shot against the iconic and Instagramable Dragon Playground, re-created at LIVINGSPACE. The best part? You can relive your childhood by sliding down it!

Have you thought about what the homes of tomorrow would be like? Upcoming plans in new housing areas at Punggol Point, Tengah and Tampines North are on display at the Future Space. You can also share your hopes and aspirations for HDB living in the future here.

Satisfy your curiosity about HDB’s youngest town, Tengah, at the Theatre. Catch a glimpse of how Tengah was planned through the wide-screen displays, projection mapping and interactives.

Wrap up your visit by bringing home a souvenir! The one-of-a-kind ‘Flavours of the Heartland’ vending machine is stocked with a curated collection of merchandise featuring iconic HDB buildings and playgrounds, including postcards, pins, and tote bags.
