Elegantly imposing, this contemporary home employs the traditional Asian concept of multi-generation living in a modern residential structure. Singapore-based studio Formwerkz Architects imagined a house that would care for different needs of each inhabitant and unify the family in a set of common spaces. The three story Apartment House project in Singapore is not only a family fortress, but also an adaptable dwelling that can easily be expanded or changed, according to each generation’s needs.

Even the scale of this residential unit hits towards its function – a residence prepared to construct a new lifestyle for the many members of the family: “The house is organized in two linear volumes, split by a common pool in the middle but connected on the upper floors by the family space. The 2-storey volume houses the parents’ master en-suite on the upper floors, floating above the main living space. A lawn garden sits above on the roof. The 3–story block primarily, apart from the dining and kitchen on the ground floor, are tailored to the lifestyles of the 3 siblings yielding to their individual narratives.“These spaces have a remarkable adaptability feature both on the exterior architecture – the two volumes can easily be transformed into 2 bungalows – as well as on the inside, where service spaces are arranged to one side.

Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts

An example of a huge success is Heneghan Peng Architects’ Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland. Using the large difference in level across the site, the architects created two folds in the landscape. Bold, but not conflicting with the rather bleak natural environment, these folds draw all the man-made areas together and create one fitting man-made break in the natural landscape. In the words of the architects themselves, There is no longer a building and a landscape, but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic
