This new building for M.I.N.D.S. is situated in the middle of an existing HDB estate and will be a new home for the residents of the existing Tampines Home along Thomson Road. The brief called for the housing of intellectually disabled persons of varying degrees and the necessary staff to supervise. It was also to include training, administrative and recreational facilities.

The design revolves around an inner courtyard, emphasising an inward looking planning concept. Much consideration is put into the design of landscaping, use of natural ventilation and sunlight as well as functional requirements of the users.
