Opened in 2017, The Warehouse Hotel sits in a historic 1895 building that was once home to Singapore’s most popular disco. Today, under the creative direction of homegrown design agency Asylum and architecture studio Zarch Collaboratives, it’s been transformed into a modern 37-room boutique hotel. Nods to the building’s industrial heritage abound, with the lobby featuring a large brick wall; black wheels and cogs dangling from the ceiling; and pulley lights that hark back to the site’s involvement in the spice trade. Rooms feature a charcoal, slate and brown colour palette and come with Bang & Olufsen Bluetooth speakers, Ashley & Co bath amenities and plush king-sized beds.
This 1895 godown is situated on the banks of the storied Singapore River, which was part of the trade route bridging the Straits of Malacca with the rest of Asia. It has since been meticulously restored, offering 37 historically-detailed rooms equipped with mod cons.
