The Interlace, Singapore
https://images.adsttc.com/media/images/5549/8741/e58e/ce42/3b00/001a/slideshow/PORTADA_The_Interlace_by_OMA_Ole_Scheeren_photo_--%C2%BC_Iwan_Baan_01.jpg?1430882109">

The Interlace is located on an elevated eight-hectare site, bounded by Alexandra Road and the Ayer Rajah Expressway, amidst the verdant Southern Ridges of Singapore. With about 170,000 sq. m. of gross floor area, the development provides 1,040 apartment units of varying sizes with extensive outdoor spaces and landscaping. The site completes a green belt that stretches between Kent Ridge, Telok Blangah Hill and Mount Faber Parks. The project was commissioned in 2007 and finished in 2013.


Designed by Ole Scheeren, partner of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), The Interlace breaks away from Singapore’s standard typology of isolated, vertical apartment towers and instead explores a dramatically different approach to tropical living: an expansive interconnected network of living and communal spaces integrated with the natural environment.

Thirty-one apartment blocks, each six-stories tall and identical in length, are stacked in a hexagonal arrangement to form eight large-scale open and permeable courtyards. The interlocking blocks form a vertical village with cascading sky gardens and both private and public roof terraces.
This provides almost every home with a wide view of the surrounding areas. The courtyards have swimming pools.

The Interlace incorporates sustainability features through careful environmental analysis of sun, wind, and micro-climate conditions on site and the integration of low-impact passive energy strategies.

The Interlace won the Urban Habitat Award in 2014 and the World Building of the Year for 2015.

It has been viewed as a challenge to traditional architecture not just in Singapore, but all over the world . The architecture community has praised the Interlace.

The Interlace was designed by Ole Scheeren and the architecture firm OMA. The project architects who followed the project through to completion while resolving design and compliance issues were
RSP Architects Planners & Engineers. Owner/developer is CapitaLand Singapore Limited.
