The Sweetness of Doing Nothing
Singapore is known to be a fast-paced and competitive society and rest is often associated with unproductivity. To challenge this norm, this project presents a paradoxical idea – to view 'rest' as an activity that boosts productivity. It aims to encourage working adults to take their minds off work and enjoy the sweetness of 'doing nothing', no matter how brief that moment may be.
Located at The Promontory@Marina Bay, the space is designed to be easily accessible to working adults. Taking inspiration from water ripples, people will be reminded of the ripple effect of rest – a short rest can go a long way. Rest helps to clear our minds so that we will not be overwhelmed by life's stresses. Serving as spaces of refuge, one can be alone to recharge and take on life's bigger challenges.
