Situated 10 minutes from the cosmopolitan stretches of Orchard Road and the Central Business District; Wanderlust also offers door step access to a bustling, colourful street life.The four storey boutique hotel has 29 rooms, featuring the groundbreaking works of award-winning Singapore design agencies Asylum, phunk studio and fFurious – this is the first-ever hotel project for each design agency. Working alongside them is Singapore architect firm DP Architects.
Just as there are no identical rooms, the same can be said for each floor in the hotel. Each agency was given full creative freedom to design an entire level in the hotel, resulting in four, different ‘in-your-face’ themes – ‘Industrial Glam’, ‘Eccentricity’, ‘Is It Just Black and White?' and ’Creature Comforts.’
For pantone charts fans, the 10 ‘capsule-like’ rooms each playfully rendered in a single colour with neon signs of songs such as ‘Red Light by U2’, ‘Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix’ and ‘White Noise by Blur’.
The only Pantone Deluxe Room in the hotel, it features a vintage cast-iron bathtub. The entire room is rendered in yellow and pays homage to The Beatle’s ‘Yellow Submarine”.
Located on Level 3, this single unit of the Mono Deluxe Room measures 24 square meters and is the only Pop-Art room with a glass-encased bathtub feature.
A total of 8 Mono Rooms on Level 3: ‘Is It Just Black or White?’ by DP Architects. Using paper as inspiration, 5 rooms are known as Origami and the remaining 4, Pop-Art.
The top floor, nicknamed ‘Creature Comforts’ by Furious offers friendly monsters as companions to the lonely traveller. Featuring 9 loft rooms with five varying themes – ‘Bling’, ‘ASCII’, ‘Space’, ‘Tree’ and ‘Typewriter’.
