perspectives project breakdown

When tasked with giving new life to
a grande dame hotel, what is your
approach to the design?
The feminine-inspired La
Dame de Pic restaurant

The chandelier in the grand
lobby recalls flower blossoms

More than landmarks, these hotels are impactful
spaces. One has to be careful when you're going
to introduce change. It's a great opportunity to
add to the history of the buildings, and there
is an obligation to not screw it up. We spend a
lot of time doing visual research. We feel that
we are cultural anthropologists, exploring not
just the history, but the context in which things
happened. We believe we can bring a sense
of contemporary design and life that captures
the wonderful aspects of historic, monumental
buildings, offering the modern accoutrements
people want without throwing the baby out with
the bathwater. We are much more articulate
visually than verbally, sifting through the past to
find these connections.

Was there a specific mission with the
Raffles Singapore?

When it was established by the Sarkies Brothers
in 1887, crazy things happened at the Raffles.
In those days, the hotel was the centerpiece of
society gatherings. By the 1990s, the vision of a
luxury hotel had changed to one of exclusion, so
we saw a necessity to restore the social spirit of
the Raffles complex. People pay a lot of money
to stay there, but it's also a national monument,
and those who are simply visiting should be able
to move across the property and experience the
hotel in a different way than the guests. One
of the great things about Raffles is that it's a
campus, not a single building. We also wanted to
restructure the public spaces so we could invite
the community back to Raffles.

How did you accomplish this?

We relocated the check-in desk. It was right by
the front door and guests couldn't go past the
metal gates to wander. You didn't feel like you
could hang out in the hotel, so we took the backof-house space behind the desk and brought it
to the front, creating a small-scale, London-style
bar with energy that spills over into the lobby
throughout the evening.
