Located in Singapore’s downtown Civic and Cultural District, The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore features a design that stays true to the buildings’ colonial art deco and Victorian aesthetics while stylishly capturing contemporary beauty and elegance. Each design element infuses homely warmth into the space while giving the feeling of understated grandeur, underscoring its stately past. Precise lines and geometric shapes are a recurring design theme, a nod to the art deco style of the early 20th century – when Capitol Building was first built.
Additionally, travertine limestone columns, high-gloss piano rosewood lacquered finishes and Italian marble floors showcase the richness and opulence of Victorian design and are beautifully juxtaposed against muted warm tones, lightly embossed champagne-colored wallpaper and the integration of Chengal wood flooring from the original building. High corniced ceilings, dramatic archways and grand windows offer sweeping views of the city and an abundance of natural light that shifts with the day, lending an almost ethereal glow to the space.
