The Fullerton Hotel

The Fullerton Hotel


A nod to neo-classical architecture

This historic building in the heart of Singapore dating from 1928 needed to be refurbished and transformed into a five-star luxury hotel with 405 rooms. A commercial building, “One Fullerton”, was also to be built on a reclaimed land opposite the hotel. The combined floor area of the two buildings was 64,160 m².

While the building's breathtaking exterior - a nod to Neo-classical architecture - had been retained and restored, Dragages Singapore had to transform and extend the building into a five-star hotel with an additional basement. Under the helm of Dragages Singapore, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore stands today as a multi-award winning establishment that is famously lauded for its exemplary guest experience. The hotel is also an iconic building that forms an integral part of the beautiful Singapore River landscape.


The interior of the building was entirely demolished except for a room on the fourth storey, the Straits Room, where the peace treaty between Singapore and Japan was signed after World War II.
