The World’s Wildest Apartment Building! Enter “The Interlace” In Singapore!

Ready to Enter The World’s Most Amazing Apartment Building?

Talk about a unique way to live!

This is “The Interlace” – built in Singapore, and designed by Ole Scheeren.

This building won the “World Building of the Year” award in 2015 – it’s an incredible series of apartment “blocks” that are stacked diagonally across one another to frame terraces and gardens.

I read online that the project was conceived as “the antithesis to tower blocks” – those dull cement towers that house thousands of people in dreary buildings.

The Interlace is a collection of 31 stacked apartment “blocks” – individual buildings that have been arranged and stacked in a honeycomb arrangement to frame eight large hexagonal courtyards.

Here is a cool video that explains the project, from “Trends Ideas” on YouTube:

Bravo to the entire team behind this incredible apartment building – I have posted other stories about architecture around the world that breaks the mod to give us art as well as housing – like these unique swimming pools:

Fancy a swim in one of these? If so, you can see the entire story here:

Let me know what you think of “The Interlace!”

  6. I think it looks great, though everyone is overlooked in some way. Then again, Singapore is a crowded city in some parts, and this is a cool way to give people some open spaces built in.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  10. I wonder how the community feel about living there. It certainly looks much better than traditional tower blocks, you would assume safer too (from earthquakes)
