Three warehouses have been combined and outfitted, starting a new lease of life as a 37-room boutique hotel. The Hotel fronts the Singapore River with a distinctive, symmetrical façade and jacked roofs while original design elements like louvre windows, doors, cornices, mouldings and the Chinese characters on the leftmost gable are sensitively retained and restored.
The design challenge was to create a hospitality interior that felt amiable, fresh but not “too girly”, cozy enough for late intimate nights but with an openness that would let them organize cooking workshops as well. The palette of materials and colors were to be the predominant white color with hints of yellow, turquoise, wood, colorful lamps and plants: the result was warmth but bright space even during the dark winter days.
The style of the restaurant conforms to European pasture with plenty of board and wooden square on the facade. Even the traditional wooden roof is applied over the dining area. Except for the wooden decoration, the external facade is used massively of the glass material and the glass doors are particularly attractive.
