21 Carpenter Unveils Its Transformation of Former Remittance House into a Design-Forward Luxury Hotel

Meticulously restored by WOHA, this heritage hotel welcomes its first guests.

Heritage hotel 21 Carpenter officially opened its doors to guests on 6 December 2023. The former remittance house — hailed as the birthplace of banking in Singapore — offers guests a blend of heritage and modernity after a contemporary update by architectural firm WOHA. Located between Clarke Quay and Boat Quay, 21 Carpenter boasts central accessibility, allowing guests to immerse themselves in the bustling streets of Singapore’s CBD and Chinatown.

“At 21 Carpenter, we aspire to be more than just a place to rest; we’re an invitation to step into Singapore’s rich stories. Our thoughtful design preserves links to the past while embracing the future through our five brand pillars: Design, Service, Gastronomy, Community and Sustainability,” shares General Manager Tarun Kalra.

Within, all rooms are thoughtfully designed spaces incorporating old and new. Employing a warm and inviting palette with Asian design influences, all furniture was custom designed by WOHA.  The Heritage Wing comprises 26 rooms over the first four floors, including the Heritage 2-Bedroom Suite spanning 55 sqm. The top five levels, known as the Urban Wing, feature 22 contemporary, light-filled rooms, such as the 30 sqmUrban Luxe room, where floor-to-ceiling windows offer views of the city and the bay. Unlike many shophouse hotels, WOHA ensured every room has a full-sized window.

Above the bustle, 21 Carpenter offers exclusive spaces for guests to unwind and relax. The intimate Garden Terrace on level 3 invites quiet connection and can serve as a small event space for intimate gatherings. The Rooftop Infinity Pool & Lounge, with the first exposed stainless-steel pool in Singapore, gives way to skyline views of Marina Bay.

An opening special offer of 30% off best available rate (starting from $355++) until end-Feb 2024. Kee’s is set to launch in Q1 2024.
