Abstract: As many countries today are faced with rapidly ageing populations, there is an urgent need to do more to cope with the issues associated with ageing. In Singapore’s context, the government has addressed this phenomenon by implementing various strategies and initiatives to promote active ageing. One such strategy is integrated design which allows for the creation of new synergies by integrating amenities. In land-scarce Singapore, integrated design appears to be the way forward. As such, it is necessary to study this new way of designing and assess its effectiveness in enabling an ageing-supportive environment. This dissertation evaluates the physical, functional and social aspects of integration in two local neighbourhoods (Bedok South and Braddell Heights) by using a research framework derived from existing ageing-focused design guidelines. Microsites within both neighbourhoods that portray different intensities of integrated design are also evaluated. Taking into account the possible changes in education, skillsets and preferences of the ‘future elderly’, the findings of the case studies attempt to identify the elements of successful integration and better inform future integrated designs.
