Residential Living with Urban Farming Conceptual project by SPARK in Singapore, designed to address the issue of Singapore ’s rapidly aging population. This conceptual project by SPARK combines residential living for seniors with vertical urban farming. by 2030, one in five of the city-state’s residents will be aged 65 years and over, placing a greater strain on the region’s infrastructure and limited resources.
we designed this concept for Singapore, but there is the potential for it to be applied in any location that would support the growth of leafy green vegetables on building facades and rooftops’, explains SPARK director stephen pimbley.‘
we are keen to see this project materialize at some point in the future. the concept is a realizable solution to real and pressing problems faced by many of the world’s growing cities.’

Consequently, ‘home farm’, allows the country’s older inhabitants to live in a garden environment that provides high-density flexible housing, designed to cater to the needs of seniors.
The residential living with urban farming project also offers post-retirement employment, with residents able to work part-time hours under the direction of a professional implementation team. publicly accessible farming facilities are positioned at the lower levels of the scheme, while housing is stacked above in a curvilinear terraced formation.
As well as boosting personal income, the gardening activity would help generate a sense of community, while promoting the health of the site’s residents. the environmental sustainability and efficiency of ‘home farm’ would be enhanced by proposed features such as the collection of rainwater, for use in aqua phonic systems, and the use of plant waste for energy production.
This is all about Residential Living with Urban Farming Conceptual project by SPARK in Singapore, and this is a latest contemporary growing architecture and the way of progress in urban exploration. Hope you people enjoy it.
