Yabu Pushelberg Designs Second Raffles Hotel in Singapore

Yabu Pushelberg has developed the masterplan for Raffles Sentosa Resort & Spa Singapore, planned for 2022. The proposed resort will feature 61 villas, each with their own private swimming pool, making the latest addition to the Raffles collection of ultra-luxury hotels one of the most exclusive resorts in Asia.

With creative direction behind the resort's architecture, landscaping, lighting and interiors, the studio began their process by composing a fictional narrative of an elegant Singapore woman moving through defining moments in her life. She begins her journey as a girl in a traditional Singapore family where she learns the importance of heritage. As a young woman, she leaves home to pursue international travels, where she's exposed to different lands and cultures. After exploring the world, she returns to her birthplace, bringing the treasures and learnings from her travels to connect them with what she holds dearest: her roots.

"The resort tells the story of her past, present and future worlds colliding into one complete harmonious experience," said George Yabu. "The story develops as you move deeper into each space, gradually becoming immersed in the natural landscape of the island and bringing you closer to a sense of home."
