Architecture Colonial to contemporary

Macalister Mansion is a pioneer project from Heritage Redefined with the aim of regenerating historic colonial buildings.

Co-owners Dato Sean and Datin Karen worked with Colin Seah of Singapore’s renowned Ministry of Design to renovate and revitalize a hundred-year-old colonial mansion, preserving the building’s heritage aspects while adding modern-day amenities and contemporary design touches.

Interior design Intimate and discerning

The hotel differentiates itself from the local hotel scene by its intimate scale, contemporary design, and attention to detail.

The Den is a seductive hideout with a wide selection of cigars and whiskeys. Each suite is customized with specially commissioned work from an artist or collection of artists, and each has its own unique architectural features.
