A conservation project, the hotel comprises two three-storey colonial military barracks that were built in 1940. Inspired by the historical heritage of Singapore, the design brings together elements of tradition and modernity.

The link between the two buildings is revitalised into a triple-volume space framed by lattice patterns which are inspired by the rice grain. Thoughtful interior details create a cosy, nostalgic experience – the floor joists of old shophouses are introduced as ceiling rafters in the guest rooms, dim sum carriers serve as baskets for toiletries, carpets with intricate batik-inspired patterns that speak of the Peranakan culture, conservation doors that reinterpret colonial architecture and the pitched roof on the third level that evokes memories of childhood homes.
