WOHA’s Kampung Admiralty Announced as WAF 2018 Building of The Year

World Architecture Festival (WAF) 2018 has come to an end by the announcement of overall winners on Day 3. This year, WOHA with its Kampung Admiralty is recognized as the most excellent building among all the categories. After receiving a winner title for Commercial Mixed-Use Projects, here is what makes WOHA’s Kampung Admiralty is honored with the notable award.

By bringing the young and old Singaporeans to live together in one place, Kampung Admiralty is a mixed-use building, known as the very first integrated public facility to create an inter-generational bonding within its users. It is built in 0.9 Ha land with the height limit of 45 meters. Optimizing the land use, WOHA stacks the idea of Kampung (village) vertically by layering the Community Plaza, Medical Center, and Community Park with senior apartments from the ground plane to the building top. Showered with greeneries, the elevated village garden on its top enriches the neighborhood living quality by inviting them to come out interact with others. Its diversity of cross-programming is believed to improve residents’ living quality and promote healing as well.
