Campus Zoning

The teams from WOHA Architects and RSP Architects Planners & Engineers are the visionaries behind SIT's centralised campus in Punggol.

Campus Heart, designed by WOHA as a 'Campus-in-a-Park,' features a forested courtyard surrounded by academic buildings.

Campus Court, designed by RSP Architects, incorporates green technologies, including natural daylight harvesting and solar panels. Two of its buildings are certified as Super Low Energy buildings. 

    About Campus Court

    Campus Court, designed by RSP, faces Coney Island. The buildings in Campus Court incorporate green technologies, including natural daylight harvesting and solar panels. The Kwek Leng Beng University Tower, Ho Bee Auditorium, indoor sports hall, and Super Low Energy buildings can be found here.

    “At the end of the day, what will remain imprinted on the students’ minds is the campus experience and interaction they have with their friends outside of the classroom.” - Suen Wee Kwok, Director, RSP

    Campus Court was designed with the concept of a courtyard in mind — to create a fluid learning and campus experience. We placed emphasis on creating spaces that promote interaction and participation, through the inclusion of many big and small courtyards, with hard and soft landscapes. These conducive spaces become natural centrifugal forces that bring people together to foster an exchange of ideas and for learning to take place, even outside the classrooms.


    About Campus Heart

    Campus Heart is a "Campus-in-a-Park" designed by WOHA Architects. Uniquely endowed with an existing secondary forest, the design capitalises on this green site asset by integrating its learning environments with biophilic indoor-outdoor tropical spaces.

    “We conserved 1.7Ha of the existing forest and designed a “Campus-in-the-Park", that is characterised by memorable place-making nodes and biophilic learning environments for students to enjoy and delight in.” - Mr Wong Mun Summ, Founding Director of WOHA

    To forge an evocative “Campus-in-a-Park” identity, the academic blocks are organised as a chain of buildings encompassing the central forest courtyard, which has been transformed into an accessible Community Park.  

    Campus Heart serves as the heart of SIT, contributing to a strong sense of place characterised by memorable nodes for learning, interaction, recreation and rejuvenation. You can find the library, a sheltered event plaza, and the Hatchery building here.

This inclusive approach helped shape the SIT Punggol Campus concept plan and design requirements.

Students and faculty staff will be involved in applied research projects as well as community activities. 

      Such collaborations enable our students to stay competitive amid the fast-evolving skill sets required by industry and groom them to seamlessly transition into their chosen careers. SIT students will especially benefit from these partnerships, by leveraging the expertise of industry through ‘industry teaching laboratories’ as well as the Living Labs.  

      There are several dedicated spaces for students. These areas, from cosy study nooks to collaborative project zones, are specially designed to support our students’ study sessions and project work.
