SINGAPORE – July 17th 2023 – Nestled in the heart of Singapore’s Duxton Hill, the 302-room Mondrian Singapore Duxton is a testament to Mondrian’s commitment to creating boundary-pushing, immersive experiences, rooted in art, design and culture. The hotel’s interior design showcases a perfect harmony between contemporary and traditional elements, seamlessly blending Singapore’s rich heritage with modern sophistication alongside an impressive collection of private artworks including Ian Davenport, Dawn Ng, and André Wee.
One of the hotel’s standout features is its collaboration with Los Angeles-based Studio Carter renowned for an inventive approach to design. Guests will find themselves immersed in the “deconstructed shophouse chic” concept, where traditional ‘shophouses’ synonymous with the Duxton Hill area of Singapore are reimagined to create captivating and unique interior design throughout. The bold design and energy carry to a cinematic rooftop pool and eclectic collection of bars and restaurants redefining the notion of gastronomic excellence. Bottega di Carna offers a modern Italian experience with a rebellious spin, presided over by the world-renowned butcher, Dario Cecchini. For those seeking a truly immersive experience, the Jungle Ballroom is accessible through a secret tunnel and celebrates the vibrant, wild nature of Southeast Asia.
Rising above historic and colorful Chinatown with sweeping views of the glittering city skyline, the hotel is a stone’s throw from the Central Business District. Backtrack 100 years and the notorious streets of Duxton Hill were filled with adventurers and thrill seekers searching for a taste of the forbidden. The aroma of spices and sounds of the illicit permeated the air. Today, Duxton Hill is Singapore’s most up-and-coming neighborhood featuring barista cafes, Michelin-starred eateries, bars, art galleries and independent boutiques.
