A housing complex for senior citizens has beaten off flashier competition to be named “World Building of the Year” at the World Architecture Festival (WAF), which concluded in Amsterdam on Friday.

Considered one of the industry’s top accolades, the award went to Kampung Admiralty in Singapore for its integration of public facilities, community space and over 100 apartments for the elderly. It was chosen from hundreds of shortlisted projects, which included Russia’s World Cup stadium, the Qatar National Library and the UK’s recently redeveloped London Bridge station.
