Joining the eight other winners from yesterday, the projects will be put forward for the accolade World Building of the Year to be announced tomorrow.
We've already posted category winners from day one and day two of WAF's sister event Inside Festival. Both festivals conclude tomorrow at the Marina Bay Sands hotel and conference centre in Singapore.
Scroll on for details of the WAF category winners from today:
Villa category winner: Namly House, Singapore, by Chang Architects
This concrete house for three generations of the same family was designed for a long thin plot in Singapore by local studio Chang Architects. "This project reflects the social and cultural dynamics of the Southeast Asian urban context," said the panel of judges.
Hotel/Leisure category winner: Citizen M London Bankside, UK, by Concrete
Situated in London's Southwark borough, the fourth hotel in this chain has been designed around a central courtyard by Dutch firm Concrete and provides various communal spaces for guests. "The questions asked by the designers led to a process that has amazing immediacy," was the judges' comment.
Civic/Community category winner: Women's Opportunity Centre, Rwanda, by Sharon Davis Design
Droplet-shaped forms radiate outward to form this mini village for women's education in Rwanda by New York studio Sharon Davis Design. "As a bonus," said the judges, "the women who were the end users actually made the bricks."
New and Old - Creative Re-use/Adaptation category winner: Conversion of the Palais Rasumofsky, Austria, by Baar Baarenfels Architekten
Vienna firm Baar Baarenfels Architekten completely replaced the vertical circulation and added an aluminium roof to this former palace damaged during the Second World War. "This, quite possibly, is a once in a lifetime opportunity to influence a 200-year-old building with great historical significance," the judges commented. "The architect demonstrated through his actions the resolution of a paradox: the boldness of a design concept that in expression was delicate and articulate."
Sport category winner: Splashpoint Leisure Centre, UK, by Wilkinson Eyre Architects
"There is a lovely use of clerestories to allow light into the main pool spaces," said the WAF judges about UK studio Wilkinson Eyre Architects' pool complex with a sawtooth roof in Worthing.
Transport category winner: Sydney Cruise Terminal, Australia, by Johnson Pilton Walker Architects
This new cruise ship docking facility in Sydney harbour by Australian firm Johnson Pilton Walker Architects is covered by an undulating roof suspended from the port's historic crane system. "This is a simple, elegant assembly of components and a good integration of new and old," the judges noted.
Production/Energy/Recycling category winner: Simple Factory Building, Singapore, by Pencil Office
Pencil Office employed a lattice to veil the facade of this industrial building in Singapore, shading it from sunlight and exploiting views out to a neighbouring park. The judges called it a "well-thought-out, elegant solution with climatic shaping, creating huge quality internal spaces".
Health category winner: Rush University Medical Centre New Hospital Tower, USA, by Perkins+Will
This hospital building in Chicago by US company Perkins+Will has rectangular lower storeys for research facilities and protuding wings above to maximise views and natural light for patient rooms. The judging panel said it was "a sensitive approach to context, an innovative solution to a highly complex programme, combined in a compelling result that challenges stereotypes of institutionalised health care."
Culture category winner: Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki, New Zealand, by Frances-Jones Morehen Thorp and Archimedia
Also a winner in the Culture category of the Inside Awards, this art gallery in Auckland by Frances-Jones Morehen Thorp and Archimedia has a patterned wood ceiling that appears to float above the building. "This is a highly sensitive addition to Auckland Art Gallery which reanimates and reinvigorates the existing building. It responds brilliantly to context and site and gives the gallery a new architectural identity," said the judges.
