*SCAPE is a 2ha space set aside specially for youth activities, located right next to popular youth mall Cineleisure Orchard in Orchard Road. *SCAPE brings young people a diverse range of community, lifestyle and entertainment options in a central and accessible hub. A visit to *SCAPE is a chance to feel young again and get to know local youth in their own space.
A new 5-storey, 1.2ha lifestyle hub was unveiled as the centrepiece of *SCAPE. This features facilities such as open areas for galleries or public performances but also comprises a music-recording studio, a dance school, a new media studio as well as a chill-out area.
*SCAPE first began as a Youth Centre, Youth Park and a Skate Park in 2006. Now, the establishment has been expanded to include six more 'conceptual' spaces: the Street+Market (for art/flea markets), Grid (with new media studios), Warehouse (the auditorium), Playspace (a sports/play arena), Studio, and Cache (a resource and wellness centre).
The area aims to provide an outlet for young people to express themselves in different ways. Take out skateboards and practise new moves at the Skate Park, or check out the flea markets and graffiti exhibits in the open areas. Better yet, youth bands regularly put up live performances throughout the year. Feel the energetic and promising heartbeat of Singapore's youth at *SCAPE!
