hotel architecture and design: the recently opened M social singapore is an avant-garde design hotel created by philippe starck. located in the city’s robertson quay area, the vibrant hotel boasts 293 rooms and is defined by the use of raw concrete that is balanced with the concept of immateriality by the use of mixed-media such as videos and projections.

decorated with starck’s creations, the mix-match of interior spaces have been purposely established to differentiate the experience of each program. an example of this is illustrated by the restaurant which has been deliberately arranged in a separate part of the hotel but together, is unified with the rest by the use of spanish floor tiles.  ‘M social is where all the elements of the world – including creativity, humour and love – come together in an explosion of energy to create the joy of today’s and tomorrow’s world. to me, it is a stage dedicated to creative people,’ comments starck

the ‘nicer room’ with terrace features a chapel-influenced arch and interiors that pay homage to dreamy vacationing




there are four different rooms available that have been conceived to offer a comfortable and timeless elegance. warm colors, opulent materials and high ceiling heights give the versatile rooms a sense of home away from home aesthetic. each of the accommodation options is offered in varying sizes and diverse configurations. ‘the nicer room’ opens onto a terrace, while ‘the bigger room’ is a duplex-style loft with a terrace. ‘M social will be the new and vibrant place in singapore where elegance, creativity and technology meet to offer a unique experience to our global smart tribe.’
