French hospitality giant Accor has unveiled plans to open Singapore’s first Mondrian hotel, with help from the likes of Dakota Development, DP Architects and Studio Carter.

Set to launch in early 2023, this milestone property will further expand the Mondrian brand’s luxury lifestyle offering across South-East Asia. Mondrian Singapore will lie at the heart of the city’s prominent Duxton Hill neighbourhood.

Making a mark in Singapore

Developed by Craig Road Property Holdings, Mondrian Singapore will combine the historic architecture of Singapore’s heritage shophouses with a contemporary newbuild. In total, it’ll incorporate 300 guestrooms and suites, along with a restaurant, lounge and rooftop bar.

This exciting announcement follows on from the recent news of Accor’s planned venture with Ennismore to create ‘the world’s leading lifestyle operator in the hospitality sector’.

“We are thrilled to bring the iconic Mondrian brand to Singapore’s Duxton Hill neighbourhood,” said Chadi Farhat, chief operating officer of SBE. “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.”

“We are excited to debut the Mondrian brand in South-East Asia and Singapore with our partner Accor,” said Sun You Ning, director of Craig Road Property Holdings. “Mondrian Singapore will provide guests an opportunity to stay in the heart of Duxton Hill, a vibrant heritage conservation area surrounded by Michelin-starred eateries, award-winning bars and iconic retail stores – all within walking distance to the Central Business District.”

Heritage meets contemporary design

This high-profile property will be the result of a collaboration between DP Architects and Studio Carter, with SBE subsidiary Dakota Development, led by president Joe Faust, providing design management services.

In terms of aesthetics, the hotel promises to stand out thanks to its unique structure. It’ll feature a lower three-storey structure offering a modern take on the city-state’s famous shophouse typology, pairing heritage-inspired design elements such as a terracotta roof with premier loft suite accommodation. There’ll also be a new tower containing the majority of the guestrooms, along with a signature restaurant, speakeasy bar with hidden entrance and rooftop pool.

These two buildings will be brought together by an urban oasis landscape deck, drawing on Singapore’s status as a ‘Garden City’.

Ideally located for cultural exploration, the day-to-night Duxton Hill neighbourhood places guests in the city’s Downtown Core District, just 20 minutes from Changi Airport and within walking distance of the business district.

Mondrian Singapore is among the new properties that Accor plans to open in its next phase of expansion following the hospitality group’s acquisition of SBE’s hotel brands. This announcement follows on from the news that Mondrian Gold Coast is also being planned for 2023.

Meanwhile, Mondrian Shoreditch London is expected to open in the second quarter of 2021, and Mondrian Bordeaux and Mondrian Cannes are both pencilled in for a 2022 debut. Other soon-to-be-announced properties in the brand’s strategic expansion include hotels in the Dominican Republic, Germany, the Maldives, Puerto Rico, Switzerland, Thailand and Vietnam.
