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.

The Mondrian Singapore confirmation follows the company’s recent announcement of Mondrian Gold Coast opening in 2023, the upcoming opening of Mondrian Shoreditch London in Q2 2021, and Mondrian Bordeaux and Mondrian Cannes in France in 2022.

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