Abstract: The Housing and Development Board (HDB) in Singapore houses more than 84% of the Singaporean population and is the largest land owner and developer in Singapore. Since its inception, HDB has shifted its focus from providing large quantities of low cost housing to providing affordable quality housing. In recent years, HDB has also been gradually moving towards the incorporation of green technologies and sustainable design in their public housing projects, with the release of their Green Housing Guide in 2007, and the completion of their new eco-precinct, Treelodge@Punggol scheduled for this year. This dissertation aims to study the approaches of the HDB towards sustainable architecture, particularly in the context of developing zero energy housing, with countries such as the United Kingdom already committed to having all new homes at zero carbon from 2016. As the most basic affordable and common type of housing available, HDB apartments will inevitably be used as a baseline for comparing residential developments. Given the reach and magnitude of their projects in Singapore, these decisions will be highly influential not just in influencing how developers will build, but also the public’s perception of what constitutes sustainable design.
