A mere stone’s throw away from the Singapore River, Studio M Hotel is in the heart of entertainment districts like Clarke Quay, Boat Quay and Robertson Quay.

Given its high visibility and the accompanying social vibrance of the site, the key idea was to design a trendy and memorable landmark worthy of gracing the historical river next to which it resides.

The result is a building façade shaped like a boat sail, with the elevated deck being likened to a cruise deck. These features collectively paint an image of a ship moored by the riverside.

Rooms were designed as live-work-play spaces that cater to the needs of urban travellers. Conceptualised as a “box within a box”, each 15 square metre room is compact yet luxurious, with double volume space for added depth and fully functional bathroom “pods” that can be easily reconfigured to create a diversity of room types.

A staircase leads up to the furniture deck that either houses a bed or workstation, giving business travellers the added convenience of computer facilities during their stay.

Studio M Hotel’s Urban Connector acts as an open space that links the hotel with outdoor areas like the landscape deck and Singapore River.

The design concept of the park was to compliment the hotel and its public spaces, with lush greenery acting to buffer the stoic landscape while also reducing heat. Provision for adequate seating also encourages guests to relax in the park while breathing in the beautiful scenery.

Visual markers abound throughout the single passage that runs through the site, with sculptural plants maintaining continuity with the greenery on the landscape deck. The pavement makes use of the wharf metaphor, with its wave-like design bringing forth feelings of fun and playfulness.
