Sofitel Singapore City Centre

Singapore

 

At the proverbial intersection of two picturesque, historical areas you’ll find the Sofitel Singapore City Centre.

The grandeur of the Champs-Elysees meets the cultural authenticity of Singapore’s Tanjong Pagar district for a result that is both majestic and timeless.

 
 

 

The Cities

 
 Tanjong Pagar is the first historic area in Singapore to be conserved under the government's conservation plan, which restored many of the area's buildings to their original appearance.

 Paris’ Champs-Elysees is one of the most iconic, celebrated streets in the romance capitol of the world. The hotel pays homage to the tree-lined boulevard, often referred to as the world's most beautiful avenue.

The Lighting

Hanging in the lobby is a centerpiece composed of crystal "leaves" the Plane Tree (platanus) leaves of Paris and the native Tembusu leaf—symbols of the relationship between the two cities: Paris and Singapore.

 
 The double-volume ceiling heights found in almost all public areas embody a sense of airiness while cultural elements serve to ground the space.
 Serviced apartments also contain an owner’s club lounge, which is set in one of the hotel’s sky gardens. This exclusive retreat has both water and fire features, which create a balanced, Zen retreat for the owners.

 

The Artwork

Work created by local artists was used throughout the hotel. Canvases featured in the guestrooms were scanned and printed from a custom hand-painted piece, and vases and sculptures in public areas were created by a local ceramic artist.

 
 This traditional Turkish “Hamam” spa features white-on-white, marble-clad walls and benches, finished with traditionally inspired Turkish faucets and hardware.

 The indoor pool area boasts tumbled limestone, honed black granite and teakwood and is lined with mixed silver mosaics, highlighted with custom sconces draped from each column.
 The gym is an industrial space, featuring with black paneling and white subway tile.

 

The Ballroom

The orchid flower, a national flower of Singapore, is brought into the ballroom carpet pattern.

 
 Using the “End of Days” image provided by the Dallas Cowboys Archives, Brandie Grogan of Kalisher created the art installation behind the reception desk, a collage of green- and blue-hued resin squares.

 

The Dining Experience

Injected with the Peranakan essence, this design idea is based on openness and the concept of interaction between chefs and customers. Based on the idea of three cooks, or “trois garcon,” Racines features four open kitchens and three food stations—a cold counter, a hot counter, and the delectable dessert counter.

 The dessert counter is reminiscent of a walk-in chocolate jewelry box.

The Lounge

Club Millesime is an executive lounge with a residential touch. The worldly artifacts offer a sense of home, while the use of darker wood and honey hues bring luxury and a masculine vibe to the space. The counters take on a modern loft kitchen design.
