GUI’s very first building – where you can find the board room, administrative areas and working space for GUI’s social enterprises.
The HeartQuarters (HQ) rises from the footprint of the previous building, features simple geometry, and works with the elements. Designed as a net-zero energy building with a low carbon footprint, the HQ maximises natural lighting and ventilation while its generous height lets heat and humidity escape.
A huge and semi-outdoor tentage space where we host a range of programmes for schools, companies and organisations.
The Chinese idiom ” to be like a fish in water ” (如鱼得水) inspired the design of our outdoor amphitheatre space.
Envisioned as two fishes encircling each other in constant motion, the earth bunds create an undulating, flowing landform that gently hugs the amphitheatre space, making this a condusive environment for various types of group activities.
Like fish in water, we believe that a close relationship with Nature can bring out the best of one’s natural talents. To swim or not to swim, the many possibilities of how this space can be used is up to your own imaginations!
An integrated learning and farming area provides a safe space for participants to learn about the Self, their team, and the land. The open landscape and undulating landforms encourage participants to be aware of their environment and the people around them.
Featuring outdoor creativity spaces including camping ground and our Amphitheatre Earth Bunds.
The living room of the Sustainable Living Kampung where people from all walks of life meet. Also includes a garden area called the SURF site (Sustainable URban Farm), a 100sqm plot of land which we first started working from in 2008. Today, we stand on 26,000sqm of land.
Featuring a beautiful chengal wood floor and a colourful recycled glass bottle wall with our handmade bricks.
A space that encourages craftmanship and the love of making with your hands, and more importantly, finding inner space within oneself for creativity and joy.
Featuring Touchwood and our office containers, this is a place that aspires to incubate innovative social enterprises with the GUI ecosystem.
“Makan is our most intimate connection with the Earth.”
Our communal kitchen area where we cook together, eat together and clean up together.
One of our farming areas uniquely designed like a maze. We are committed to organic certification (organic certification in progress) and practising non-chemical; natural farming methods.
