Heritage meets luxury in Singapore

Giving industrial design a new local spin, The Warehouse Hotel is a portal to Singapore’s richly diverse culture.

The Warehouse Hotel was built in 1895 along the Singapore River as part of the Straits of Malacca trade route. At that time, the area was a hotbed of secret societies, underground activity, and liquor distilleries. Today, while much of that history has disappeared, The Warehouse Hotel has been meticulously restored as a modern 37-room boutique hotel, focusing on heritage and local culture.

Three warehouses were given a new life thanks a triple-pitched roof that makes each room unique. Many of the original elements of the structure have been preserved and some given an update, such as the trusses in the lobby area that have been refinished in black, lending character to the space.

The challenge faced by the Asylum team was to redefine the term “industrial” by adding warmth, elegance, and softness to what is normally an austere concept. Each room is distinct and boasts natural light that comes from unexpected sources. 

Heritage is another big theme throughout the hotel and shows up in small details, such as the room keys that are in an old Mandarin font. Meander along the Singapore River as the sun goes down and watch its nocturnal personality unfold to a mixtape that’s almost as soulful and seductive as the island city-state itself.
