It’s 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. It’s truly a wild jumble of apartment blocks seemingly stacked at random – which is part of why it’s so brilliant.

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:

And what about this hotel rooftop pool?

It looks like it goes on forever because it does!

Check out the pool with the most incredible view of Singapore by clicking on my story here:

From large to very very small…what about this “micro apartment?”

Where’s the rest of it?

There is no rest! Click to see just how small “micro apartments” can be!

  1. Hi John, I am sure these apartments are expensive. I prefer living in a house but this is much better than a block, if you can afford it. Fascinating post, as always.

  2. Wow, how fascinating! I spent my teenage years living in a dreary high-rise block. This complex is amazing.

  3. I like it, and I’d like to be inside to find out if I’d like it. I don’t know if Singapore is prone to earthquakes, but I wonder how these buildings would do in a big shaker.

  4. I agree with Pete, not sure I’d like to live there, but I do admire the design innovation here

  5. This is brilliant! First glance might be confusing or whacky, but that’s not the case. It brings park-like nature and gardens into an urban setting.

  6. I’m very impressed by the design of this complex, John. Not sure I would want to live there, but I can imagine it does provide that community feel mentioned in the video.
    Best wishes, Pete.
