Ong&Ong's new hotel raises the bar for Singaporean style
Hotel Quincy was envisaged as a one-of-a kind boutique hotel encompassing all the design aspects from architecture, interior design, landscape, project management and graphic design. This building shows the process of how one design concept is implemented through all design elements, providing consistency in creativity and design.
Quincy was built as an extension of the former Elizabeth Hotel sited next door. To break away from the dated look of its predecessor, dark aluminum and tempered glass was chosen to frame the entire façade. Each space is unique, each an individual configuration, providing a different experience. The aim was to create a distinctive, sustainable and timeless space that goes beyond the existing boutique hotels. The main concept was to create rooms from different variations and permutations of exterior glass
and steel cladding. These rooms were then randomly stacked forming a unique one-of-a-kind exterior façade.
Playing on themes such as glamour, luxury and sophistication, the design team incorporated modern design elements and the latest amenities. From steel claddings to exotic rich suede and custom glasswork, only the finest materials are used to create this stunning masterpiece. Interior design is whimsical, with playful characteristics woven into every unexpected nook and corner. Bold, acid colours are selected for the ultra-modern furniture to contrast against the muted undertones backdrop of the off-white walls and
grey raw look of cement stones. The landscape philosophy is sensitive to the
contemporary building design and maintains a modern and reflective quality to the surrounding space appropriate to a boutique hotel.
Indigenous products in a modern application, such as dark grey steel detailing and granite stonework lit by fanciful light fixtures, demonstrate the fusion of old and new.
