The Mondrian Singapore Duxton is preparing to open in March offering 302 rooms and suites and a design ethos of “deconstructed shophouse chic”.
“Rather than a direct translation of the classic shophouse, we took its parts and deconstructed it into contemporary forms,” said Robbyn Carter, of Los Angeles-based design firm Studio Carter.
“We wanted to recognise it, but also reinvent it, that Singapore silhouette, and rediscover old details in contemporary and unexpected touches.
“It’s a beautiful merger of the botanical green city, the shophouses, the cultural convergence, the new with the historical.”
Eschewing the traditional lobby, guests will be greeted by flagship dining experience Bottega di Carna the moment they arrive. A café, cocktail bar, and rooftop bar complete the food and beverage offerings.
“It’s all about gathering a true community of creatives and free-thinkers, and provoking conversations, imaginations and culture,” said general manager Robert C. Hauck.
“I see Mondrian becoming the beating heart of this extraordinary city, a catalyst to forge connections with like-minded people, innovators and the wild at heart.”
