The Interlace is a totally new response to contemporary living in a tropical environment that moves away from typical condo clusters of isolated vertical towers. The architects have created a unique condo like no other in Singapore. (See photo gallery below.)
It is aptly named too - an interlace of apartment blocks creating interesting and unusual vistas and courtyards.
This project occupies the site of the former Gillman Heights that was sold to Capitaland. It is situated on the fringe of the city in the Southern Ridges green belt, en-route to the high-tech i-parks and research hubs of Science Park and One-North. Many of its former residents were expatriates working in those institutes, attracted to its surrounding greenery and proximity to town and their workplace.
The former Gillman Heights Condo has since been torn down to make way for Interlace.
The Interlace Condo features 1,040 apartments on a 99-year leasehold land of 871,884 square feet, with units ranging from 807 sq ft for two bedroom apartments to 4,306 sq ft for super penthouses. These units are in 31 apartment blocks, each six stories high, set in hexagonal arrangements to form eight large courtyards.
According to the developer, the arrangement of the blocks is not merely for aesthetics, but is in response to analysis of the micro-climate, and sun & wind conditions of the site. It is designed to minimize heat gain, and provide lots of natural light. Multi-storey gaps between the blocks permit wind and light to weave into the architecture.
The Interlace responds to issues of tropical living by creating a network of recreational & dwelling spaces integrated with the natural environment, that draws residents into the extensive communal gardens. Enhancing this luxuriant mix are the many sky gardens and roof terraces.
Underground parking keeps vehicular traffic safely away from these gardens and frees up large green areas to accommodate a variety of communal facilities.
Units facing south & east may get to enjoy the greenery of the Southern Ridges close by. Higher floor units could get city and sea views as well.
