REDEVELOPMENT OF SENTUL MARKET | MARKET + COMMUNITY CENTRE THE SENTUL TREEHOUSE

The traditional wet market has been the microcosm of the society
that plays an important role as a community hub. This mini village
of Sentul Market is created by a range of activities which
includes trading of local food production and basic needs.

The research aims to redevelop the existing Sentul Market into a
preferred place to shop for fresh local food without
compromising its originality and sense of community that can be
seen in a traditonal wet market in a sustainable way.

The new programs seeks to turn the monofunctional market
into a marketplace cum community centre that caters the old
and new community, providing people’s place which is lacking
in Sentul.

This project envisions a contemporary marketplace that brings
community together and achieving positive impact to the
environment. Being a “backlane” of Sentul, where the
microcosm of the society remain and rich with social cultural
aspect.
