KATONG SQUARE, Singapore

Architecture

Katong Square is a landmark mixed-use development that sits along vibrant East Coast Road. Containing commercial, hospitality and retail spaces, including two hotels – the Hotel Indigo Katong and the Holiday Inn Express – together with a host of dining and entertainment options, the new development is certain to elevate the array of lifestyle choices available in one of the most historic parts of Singapore.

Architects applied sustainable regionalism as the main architectural response to a unique site. The project saw the conservation of the former Joo Chiat Police Station, with elements of the neighbourhood’s rich Peranakan culture imaginatively woven into the new development.
