Abstract: The rapidly ageing demographics of Singapore accompanied by the sharply increasing numbers of elderly Singaporeans living alone at old age renders increasing need and urgency to adapt to the old. Despite countless efforts and initiatives that has been integrated by various stake holders throughout the years, the ever-changing characteristic and traits of the future generation of elderly renders the integrated initiatives and policies an expiry date. With the changing preferences and blurring lines of age boundaries, initiatives dedicated for the future generation of elderly would need to remain relevant to serve their effectiveness. Specifically, the senior citizen corner is one of the many intervention integrated within neighbourhood precincts to help curb the issue of loneliness arising from social isolation. However, with the limitations of the current corners, it is imperative to rethink these corners to prevent the obsolesce of these spaces, especially so in a space scarce Singapore. As such, in response to the changing landscape of the elderly demographics, this project aims to address the existing gaps of the conventional senior citizen corners. By reimagining the narrative of the corner for elderly, the project aims to alleviate loneliness arising from social isolation while bridging the differences between the changing dynamics of the different generations.
