Quincy | architecture
The 108-room boutique hotel is a trendy choice for the weary business traveller. Tucked away in Mount Elizabeth’s residential enclave, the location affords quietude right in the heart of the bustling city area.
Initially, the narrow plot of land posed a significant design challenge, but this was cleverly remedied by shaping the building into a rectangular block. Divided into permutations of a one-third/two-third grid – a signature trait continued into all other aspects of Quincy – the rooms appear to be stacked on top of each other, thus generating rhythm in the façade’s design. Furthermore, anodised aluminum cladding ensures that the building wears well in the tropical climate.
Classy yet subtle, Quincy could almost blend in as a luxury apartment building – a concept which, coincidentally, parallels the idea of a home away from home.
