Accor will plant a Mondrian property in Singapore come early 2023, one of the first to open in the company’s next-phase expansion plans for the brand since its acquisition of sbe’s hotel brands in November 2020.
The 300-key Mondrian Singapore will be a luxury lifestyle hotel that combines historic architecture from Singapore’s centuries-old shophouses with a new build of modern, contemporary influences. Located in Duxton Hill, the property is being developed by Craig Road Property Holdings.
Chadi Farhat, COO of sbe, said: “Mondrian is a natural fit for a global destination like Singapore. The property will provide a cultural hub of food and beverage experiences for locals and travellers alike. Mondrian Singapore will be more than a hotel; it will be a destination.”
A collaboration between DP Architects and Studio Carter, Mondrian Singapore will feature a three-story building in a contemporary take on Singapore shophouse building typology. This portion of the hotel features a terracotta roof and colonial-style window shutters, and will include the hotel’s premier guest accommodations in loft suites. There will also be a new, contemporary tower housing the majority of the hotel’s guestrooms as well as a rooftop pool, bar and signature restaurant. The two buildings will be united by an urban oasis landscape deck to remind guests of their location, as Singapore is known as a Garden City.
In addition to the rooftop pool, the hotel will also feature a speakeasy bar with a hidden entrance.
Besides Mondrian Singapore, Accor has recently announced the upcoming opening of Mondrian Shoreditch London in 2Q2021, Mondrian Bordeaux and Mondrian Cannes in France in 2022, and Mondrian Gold Coast in 2023. There will be more announcements coming soon for Mondrian properties in the Dominican Republic, Germany, the Maldives, Puerto Rico, Switzerland, Thailand, and Vietnam.
