According to the results of the World Architecture Festival, held on November 4-6, 2015 in Singapore, the experts recognized the local “vertical village” Interlace as the best high-rise building in the world in 2015. The building is a large residential complex built in the form of a hexagonal grid that connects the six-storey blocks superimposed on each other into a single system. Numerous cascades of gardens, a number of private and public terraces on the roof of the building, picturesque bridges and passages between individual buildings, drowning in lush vegetation, give the impression that you are as if you are in a "vertical village", from which the complex received its corresponding name.
The village was designed by German architect Ole Scheeren, who previously designed the world-renowned China Central Television (CCTV) office in Beijing, which was also named the best high-rise building in the world. The architect's ideas have won the highest international awards in the field of urban planning many times.
“The idea was to create a vertical structure in a rustic style,” Sherein, 43, explained to reporters at the dp news agency in Beijing. - It was necessary to figure out how to arrange the living space of people in a new way, both individually and socially, and, based on this, develop the structure of buildings."
It should be added that as a result, the village turned out to be very comfortable and high-tech, which has no analogues in the world. The designers even took into account the trajectory of the sun, so that the cooling and glazing systems demonstrate the highest rates of their efficiency. The hexagonal mesh-shape of the complex with its curves creates additional opportunities for natural ventilation. Tennis courts, theaters, swimming pools, a garden of bamboo trees, ponds, hills once again vividly emphasize what an ideal home for life can really be.
