    Synopsis
    Singapore’s public housing programme—an inclusive space that prioritizes families and intergenerational living—is arguably the most successful in the world. Amidst this backdrop, 03-FLATS follows the domestic experiences of three single women who are at different stages of their lives. Looking from within each flat, the film moves between the women’s distinctively lived interiors and the ordered public spaces beyond. It records how domestic resilience might resist the ennui of mass housing, turning housing into home.

    Combining the documentary genre with formal attention to the spatial nuances in each flat and its occupant’s routines, 03-FLATS is part of a research initiative by Dr Lilian Chee at the Department of Architecture, National University of Singapore to probe how domesticity—a key component wherein home is produced—could be viscerally represented and experientially encountered.
