DESCRIPTION
 
.
The Interlace, OMA Office for Metropolitan Architecture, Büro Ole Scheeren, SingaporeThe residential development, designed by OMA / Büro Ole Scheeren, is a radically new approach to contemporary living in a tropical environment.

The Interlace, OMA Office for Metropolitan Architecture, Büro Ole Scheeren, SingaporeThe Interlace is one of the most ambitious residential developments in Singapore's history, generating an intricate network of living and social spaces intertwined with the natural environment. Instead of following the default typology of housing in the region – clusters of isolated towers - the vertical is turned horizontal, with 31 apartment blocks, each six stories tall and 70 meters long. Stacked in hexagonal arrangements around eight large-scale open permeable courtyards, the scheme creates a network of internal and external environments that create a multitude of shared and private outdoor spaces on multiple levels.
