The Interlace in Alexandra Road, Singapore by OMA/Ole Scheeren

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

Article source: OMA/Ole Scheeren

The Interlace in Singapore, a large-scale residential development by CapitaLand Singapore, has been chosen by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) in Chicago as the winner of the inaugural worldwide Urban Habitat Award 2014 in recognition of its groundbreaking contributions to the urban realm and social sustainability.

Ole Scheeren’s design generates an extensive network of private and shared spaces in a radical reinterpretation of contemporary life in a community. Instead of following the default typology of housing in dense urban environments – clusters of isolated towers – the design turns vertical isolation into horizontal connectivity and reinstates the notion of community as a central issue in today’s society.

Multifunctional complex with apartments in Moscow, Russia by SPEECH

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

Article source: SPEECH

The bulk of the future building was assigned by the size of the emptied site and the marks of the neighbouring buildings: 135×76 m, with the height of 68 m. The question was not so much about forming an original architectural image, as about development of the complex planning corresponding with world-wide criteria, which pretend to the class “A”, and an original façade solution, harmoniously grouping with “Mirax-Plaza” and at the same time emphasizing the independence of the new object.

Cabrio Apartment in Rotterdam, The Netherlands by HUNK-design

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

Article source: HUNK-design

The transformation of a very common 19th century Rotterdam upstairs apartment into an unique city paradise.

The residents, Bart Cardinaal en Nadine Roos, had been residents at this address since their student time. With the arrival of their daughter the rented apartment didn’t suffice any more and the residents were on the look out for a home with a (roof)garden. Then the opportunity came along to buy the house for a very good price and it also turned out that it was possible to rebuild the house drastically. As they have their own architectural and design firm, HUNK-design, this became the start of the transformation.
