Yotel Singapore

366 Orchard Road, Singapore 238904

Rising out of a discreet site within the famed Orchard shopping district is Yotel Singapore, the brand’s first micro-hotel in Asia. Its design was conceived with two things in mind: the distinct aesthetic of the Yotel brand and the savvy traveller of today. Positioned as a modern and affordably luxurious hotel, it drew inspiration from first-class airline travel. The 30-storey tower atop an existing 7-storey car park podium was designed to have as much room as possible on a tight site largely eluded from plain sight. A distinct façade pattern was created through a collage of glass and aluminum panels with varying modulation of frames, which is then complemented by the rustic bronze podium. The podium screen comprises triangulated elements in alternating colours and this motif is furthered in the pavement pattern and trellis of the pedestrian link way. This facilitates pedestrian flow while simultaneously strengthening the presence of the hotel. Despite the tight footprint, a lofty elevated arrival deck features mirror-finished ceilings to create the illusion of grandeur and height. The final architectural expression is a striking, slim tower of striking textured glass and aluminum façade, juxtaposed against an animated podium. The interior layout is carefully configured to accommodate a typical guest cabin size of 12.5sqm and maximise the volumetric height of the rooms. As a result, guests enjoy a generous volume of space, which further bestows a sense of luxury and comfort. The emphasis on spatial and material comfort of inward-facing rooms addresses the limited views from the confined site, and provides a greater sense of space even within rooms where this is budgeted. Another priority of the design is long-term economic and environmental sustainability. Consciously established optimum sustainable performance goals are clearly manifested in the hotel’s green features. To achieve energy efficiency, the building envelope was developed to reduce heat gain; efficient systems including air-conditioning, mechanical ventilation, lighting, hot-water and vertical transportation were carefully reviewed before implementation. Overall, every design aspect of Yotel is customised to enhance guest experience, placing comfort and efficiency at the forefront of this development.
