Every year, lucky Singaporeans get to live, breathe and gasp at the latest creations of the world’s top architects and interior designers …
The world’s interior and exterior architecture festivals 2014 – INSIDE | World Festival of Interiors and The World Architecture Festival – took place in the magnificent Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Singapore this past weekend, and here we have a look at the amazing winners.
After a jam-packed programme of inspirational design
and exciting lectures, the judges awarded the prize
of Overall World Interior of the Year 2014
to MOTT32 (above) by Joyce Wang Studio,
Hong Kong, a renovated basement storage facility
that has been transformed into a luxury industrial
New York meets classic Chinese restaurant.
The winner in the Residential category –
Xintiandi – also came from Joyce Wang Studio:
a three-story penthouse with a feature staircase
that winds around a double-height atrium,
and the most stunning views of Shanghai.
Among the great residential projects
the judges had to decide on were:
the Split House from China
and our favourite (above),
