Centrally located in Bras Basah.Bugis, Singapore’s arts, heritage and design precinct, it is also home to the DesignSingapore Council, the national agency for design. The repurposed, award-winning conserved building is as much an emblem for outstanding Singaporean design and architecture, as it is a thriving venue for visitors to attend design-focused showcases and programmes. NDC adds to the pulse of the city’s district of arts, culture, design, heritage, learning and entertainment.
