Designed by Ole Scheeren, partner of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), Singapore’s stacked apartment complex ‘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.
