The treasured architectural gem, Capitol Building, and its stately Victorian neighbour, Stamford House, will be unveiled in the third quarter of this year as the new ultra-luxury hotel, The Patina, Capitol Singapore. Distinguishing itself through its focus on bespoke services, the new hotel is also an integral component of Capitol Singapore, the city’s first integrated luxury lifestyle development, which encompasses an exclusive 32-unit residential tower, a premium retail mall offering exciting new-to-market brands, and world class cinematic and theatrical entertainment at the newly reinvigorated Capitol Theatre.
Pritzker Architecture Prize Laureate Richard Meier is credited with rejuvenating the two iconic buildings to function as a bridge between past and present. His sensitivity to their venerable status, rooted in his respect for heritage, is combined with his flair for introducing contemporary perspectives. The result is an innovative masterpiece of beautifully conserved architecture integrated with refreshing modern touches. Thoughtful, intricate details that deliver a refreshed present while celebrating the past are reflected through luxurious interiors conceptualised by Jaya International Design.
