Left to Right: The Quadrant@Cecil, Goh Loo Club, The Warehouse Hotel

Step into former bank headquarters The Quadrant at Cecil and be inspired by one of the last few original Art Deco structures in Singapore’s Central Business District. Through mini-showcases, installations, and sharing sessions, we will also offer a glimpse into not just the history of the building but what Singapore's CBD in the 1930s was like in real life, or could have been in an imaginary world.

Then we will take you to Goh Loo Club, a Chinese gentleman’s club built in 1905, where you will discover its illustrious history. We are also showcasing the ways in which local creatives use Chinese heritage and culture in their design, through typography, pottery and furniture. You can learn about traditional letterpress printing with Chinese character types, drink tea in wares made using a blend of Singapore clay, and learn about how Chinese culture has inspired furniture design, but with a contemporary twist.

Last but not least, experience
The Warehouse Hotel as though you’re a guest! Discover how they have integrated the heritage of their building into design elements in the space, creating for themselves a truly spectacular guest experience and a distinct identity. See the beautifully designed rooms for yourself, watch a pottery making demonstration, and discover a place using your sense of smell for a truly inspired afternoon.
