Project name: The CuuBE

Purpose: Its a open location for young and old alike to visit and spend their monetary allowances and salaries for the sole purpose of entertainment and leisure.

Concept: Its supposed to be bright and entertaining so the colors are based on that of a rubrics cube (red, orange, yellow, white, green). The colors are all bright and there is a rooftop garden located outside the cinema for those who prefer just sitting around. There are also arcades, restaurants and a library inside the building so visitors have multiple options for entertainment.

What makes a good architectural design

HDB estates have great architectural designs as they not only provide areas for young children and elderly alike to enjoy themselves either by playing games or by chatting up with neighbors or friends. It also provides affordable housing for large families and also provide sheltered paths during rain. These structures are also easily accessible and are usually located near train stations and shopping centres.
