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 (below) 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 (below) – 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.

For inspiration and to learn more about the top residential design trends coming out of INSIDE 2014, see the World Interiors Directory of projects.

Also this past weekend, 2,000 architects, designers, clients and press got together for the world’s largest festival celebrating architectural excellence from across the globe. The Overall Winner was the Chapel (below), a community space in a new urban ward on the outskirts of Hochiminh City, Vietnam.

Among the great residential projects the judges had to decide on were: the Split House from China and our favourite (below), the Dune House in New Zealand.
