Singapore gets first Mondrian hotel in 2023, a mix of shophouse and contemporary styles

Singapore’s first Mondrian hotel is set to open early 2023 and will be built in the heart of the city’s prominent Duxton Hill neighbourhood, a conservation area surrounded by Michelin-starred eateries and award winning bars. 

Mondrian Singapore, described as a luxury lifestyle hotel, will comprise 300 guestrooms and suites, a restaurant, a lounge and a rooftop bar.  It’ll combine historic architecture from Singapore’s centuries-old shophouses with a new build of contemporary influences, and will provide a cultural hub of food and beverage experiences for locals and travelers alike.    

A collaboration between DP Architects and Studio Carter, Mondrian Singapore will feature a lower three-story building in a contemporary take on the famous Singapore ‘shophouse’ style, complete with terracotta roof and colonial-style window shutters. 

The hotel will then be expanded with a contemporary tower housing the majority of the guestrooms, as well as a rooftop pool and bar and signature restaurant. The two buildings will be linked by an urban oasis landscape deck, as befits the Garden City.

The hotel will also feature a speakeasy bar with a hidden entrance for thirsty travellers and locals to explore.

Also in development are Mondrian properties in the Dominican Republic, Germany, the Maldives, Puerto Rico, Switzerland, Thailand, and Vietnam.
