The Warehouse Hotel

Asylum as Designers

The Warehouse Hotel, a 37-room boutique hotel rich with heritage, is the first hotel in Singapore to be housed in a restored “godown” or warehouse. In its design concept, Asylum revisited Singapore’s forgotten history, marrying the historical industrial touches with modern luxurious design finishes.


Through research, Asylum discovered the rich history of the hotel. When the warehouse was built in 1895, its vicinity was not just Singapore’s flourishing trading port but also a hotbed of secret societies, underground activities, and illegal liquor distilleries. In the 1980s, the former godown was converted into a disco club, which was then left vacant for decades before the owners transformed it into The Warehouse Hotel. This acted as Asylum’s design principle as it weaved in luxurious touches to strike a balance between old and new.
