Mixing the words "super slim" and "skyscraper" never seemed like a good idea to me (my mind just conjures up a real-life Jenga mess), yet The Met Residence proves me wrong. Considering this design is the winner of the World’s Best
Housing Development Award at the World Architectural Festival, I’m clearly not the only one who was impressed.

Designed by WOHA, The Met Residence was inspired by Thai tiles, textiles and timber paneling. Built in Bangkok, that seems more than appropriate. Visit for more info and images.
