HDB Void Decks: A Social Playground

Ohmyhome Jan 24, 2017

Since the 1970s, HDBs in Singapore have had one very consistent feature: void decks.

It’s the empty space on the ground floor of each HDB block that residents often use as a universally shared space for a multitude of purposes.

Oftentimes people pass by without even giving it a second thought, forgetting that it can play a large role in keeping a community vibrant.

Here’s how your everyday void deck helps you out daily:

It’s perfect for any occasion

It uses universal shared space that everyone could use. Since its inception, it has been a place where community members could meet up and catch up on each other’s lives.

It’s fit for everyone

For most of the young, it's been a place to meet up and lepak. Children could also run around playing football or tag. There could also be those in their advanced years playing a round of chess on the tables.

It’s a place filled with activity and everyone’s memories – another reason why it’s such a beloved structure in every HDB neighbourhood.

When once people spent their days outdoors in the company of their neighbors, today people are often shut-in in their homes, probably stuck addicted to something on a screen. Whether it’s a game, an e-book, or a chat app, we’re now spending our time preoccupied with experiences that are purely digital.

The mere existence of a void deck allows us an avenue to meet with others and have fun without the need for any kind of expensive tech.
