Project Commune, spearheaded by Dormitory Association of Singapore Limited (DASL) has gained acclaim as a pioneering effort in redefining migrant worker dormitories. It recently earned the prestigious SG Mark Gold Award, underscoring its innovative approach to design and management.
A Noble Mission
The dormitories have collectively provided accommodations for migrant workers for many years and have an understanding of the needs and expectations of their residents from various cultures across Asia.
To deepen this understanding, DASL commissioned AGENCY, a consultancy agency, to use its findings to recommend designs for future accommodations with the objective to continue providing comfortable homes away from home for migrant workers here in Singapore.
We recognize that expectations of standards of living will continue to rise. We need only look at our own expectations of homes to understand that as society progresses and with innovation in the built environment industry, expectations for better housing conditions will follow.
