Capitaland and Hotel Properties Ltd will be launching the former Gillman Heights condominium site with a $1.4 billion design by Ole Scheeren of OMA. The Interlace with a sprawling 81,000 sqm (871,560 sqft) land and a GFA of 170,000 sqm (1,829,200 sqft) will be configured into a 1,040-unit development next month.

Ole Scheeren is the man behind the design of China Central Television (CCTV) Headquarters in Beijing. His previous work includes the Prada Epicenters in New York City and Los Angeles. Just look at the breathtaking and bold architecture design here.
Imagine this. A 31 apartment blocks of six storey each, stacked hexagon ways. On top of which, sky gardens and roof terraces are key features with the surrounding Telok Blangah greenery. A mixture of townhouses (which could double up as home offices), 2-bedrooms, 3-bedrooms, 4-bedrooms and penthouses will be available as part of its offering in this 99-year leasehold project.
I like the description used by The Inhabitat for The Interlace, Jenga-Like apartments.
The project will be ready by 2014, is own by Capitaland, Hotel Properties Ltd (HPL) and National University of Singapore (NUS). The architect is local RSP Architects Planners & Engineers (ION Orchard, Wheelock Place, St Regis Hotel & Residences) and the landscape architect is award-winning ICN Design International

your views on this development?
This project looks daunting. In Singapore’s architecture, I’m sure it’s trying to prove something.
Location wise, great! A short drive and you’ll reach Orchard belt or City in no time.
I’m a little skeptical until I see the general layout before commenting further as I suspect that some apartments in this Jenga-type design might not have enough natural light coming in with blocks of apartment stacking in a hexagonal manner.
Till I get my hands on the layouts ;)
