Holland Village MRT Station (CC21) is an underground station along the Circle Line (CCL) Stage 4, located within the Leedon Park planning subzone. It is built underneath the junction of Holland Road and Holland Avenue, next to the Holland Village neighborhood, which this station gets its name.

Holland Village takes its name from Holland Road, in turn named an early resident, Hugh Holland, a well-respected architect known for his acting pursuits. The area was once home to European civilian populations and is still regarded today as an expatriate social enclave within an upmarket residential estate, filled with restaurants, drinking establishments and specialist shops popular with expatriates and younger locals alike.

Apart from Holland Village itself, the station primarily serves residential estates, such as private homes around Leedon Park and Chip Bee Gardens, as well as HBD estates around Holland Drive and Holland Close. Nearby schools, and places of worship are also served.

Holland Village station has two platforms in an island platform arrangement. Full-height Platform screen doors isolate the air-conditioned station from the tunnel environment, enhancing commuter safety and station comfort. A set of escalators, stairs and a lift connects the platform level to the concourse level one floor above. With the concourse wrapping around the platform, a large interior space is created around the middle of the platform, giving the impression of spaciousness.

Passenger Information Systems, which are plasma display screens located at each platform, display expected train arrival times and key messages. Tactile flooring helps to guide the visually-handicapped from the platform to the station exits.

Concourse

The station concourse at Basement 1 feature faregates for automatic fare collection and provides access between paid and unpaid areas of the station, with at least one bidirectional wide-swinging gate for the benefit of passengers-in-wheelchairs and those carrying bulky items or travelling with prams.

General Ticketing Machines allow commuters to purchase tickets for single or multiple journeys, and along with Top-up Machines, offer contactless card transactions. The station office functions as a Passenger Service Centre, and is staffed during operating hours, where commuters may make travel inquiries or perform card transactions using cash payment.

Toilets are located at concourse level, near the Passenger Service Centre. Retail shops are located within unpaid areas of the concourse.

Art in Transit: “Holland Beat” by Jeremy Sharma

This artwork reflects the culture and heartbeat of Holland Village. Holland V has a diverse crowd of expatriates, youth and heartlanders. It has trendy cafes and old-world charm, bustling areas and quiet retreats. Here the mythical Windmill reminds you of Holland, but this ‘Holland’ is really named after Hugh Holland, an early resident who was an architect and an amateur actor. An old airline safety card, chosen for its colour scheme and clean lines to match the station interior, inspired its design. Created through a process of drawing, collage and digital manipulation, the final artwork has a very retro contemporary feel about it. The figures are arranged in a way that has a flow and non-linear narrative in relation to space and imagery.
