A modern community for mature living.


A modern community for mature living.

It takes a village to age gracefully, and Kampung Admiralty is exactly that—a village for the aged with commercial shops, a medical center, as well as community gardens. This public facility complex brings people together and offers all the necessities for modern living. As Singapore’s population ages, there’s new value in bringing back the concept of community. Kampung is Malay for village, and the Kampung Admiralty is creating a village within the city. With its nine-hundred-seat trade center and the surrounding community, Kampung Admiralty brings people of all ages together.
