Yet, luckily, a 35,000-squarefoot property came available (a former minigolf, golf range, and tennis complex), and Open Farm Community (OFC), an experiential F&B complex-and a first of its kind in Singapore- from designer Alan Barr, chef Ryan Clift, his partners Spa Esprit Group, and local urban farming group Edible Garden City, won over the Singapore Land Authority (SLA), which had put the property up for public bid. 1. Open Farm Community's front veranda features yellow steel ping pong tables and a red timber screen that wraps the first of two buildings, home to Common Man Coffee Roaster. 2. White and red parasols on the coffee shop's patio resemble flowers. 2 October 2015 061
