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 façades 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.’

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.
