Singapore’s treasured architectural gem, the Capitol Building, and its stately Victorian neighbor, Stamford House, will be unveiled in the third quarter of this year as a new ultra-luxury hotel, The Patina, Capitol Singapore. Pritzker Architecture Prize Laureate Richard Meier rejuvenated the two iconic buildings to function as a bridge between past and present.

Camilla Chiam, Patina Hotels & Resorts’ head of group corporate communications, who visited Luxury Travel Advisor’s offices recently, also touted the interior work by world-renowned Jaya International Design and told us that the new hotel is an integral component of Capitol Singapore, “the city’s first integrated luxury lifestyle development,” which also encompasses a premium retail mall and the newly reinvigorated Capitol Theatre. The mall, she told us, will include “international brands never seen in Singapore before,” while the 112-year-old theater maintains classic elements of its original décor with a decidedly 21st-century twist: When not hosting movies or stage productions, its 800 seats can be sunk and covered with a floor suitable for large-scale receptions and other events.

Stamford Suite has separate bedroom and lounge areas with lofty ceilings, and is decorated with specially curated artwork.

Chiam also pointed out that in addition to being within walking distance of the National Gallery and the Singapore Art Museum, The Patina has a world-class art collection of its own. Regarding the culinary arts, “The Patina will have a 250-seat Peruvian-Japanese fusion restaurant [Eru] and a South American chocolatier [PURE & Co.],” she said, adding that the hotel also plans to offer cooking classes. At Erubar, guests can sip the specialty Peruvian brandy, Pisco, and a range of signature cocktails, as well as sample Peruvian-style tapas, while DJs spin music into the night.
