MAKING A GRAND ENTRANCE
Sheraton Towers Singapore unveils the brand new Grand Ballroom after multi-million revamp.
It has been the venue for countless celebrations that marked new phases in life. Now, the Grand Ballroom of Sheraton Towers Singapore enters a new phase of its own. After a multimillion- dollar rejuvenation, the iconic space – alongside other function venues of the hotel – has been given a new lease of life.
The project that was a year in the making was undertaken by Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) – the largest hospitality design rm in the world, acclaimed for having created some of the most striking destination hotels. In the hands of experts, the classically grand space was thoughtfully updated to exude contemporary sophistication.
Taking inspiration from nature, the interior of the Grand Ballroom features an organic softness in design, and presents nature-inspired detailing. This is combined with strong, structural lines in the nishing touches for a look that is at once gentle and warm, yet smart and sharp. No detail is overlooked, from the specially curated plush carpeting that depicts abstract art to the 27 majestic chandeliers hanging from the ceiling of the voluminous space.
Dressed in soothing hues of burgundy, purple and grey, the ballroom is conceptualised as the perfect backdrop for any event – be it a private celebration, an exclusive social event or a high pro le corporate function. A series of stylish acoustic panels clad in grey soundabsorbing textile stands on the perimeters of the room, ensuring optimal acoustic comfort. While LED skirting lends a soft, welcoming glow, customisable, colourchanging cove lights and 360- degree rotational lights from award-winning stage and lighting brand Martin Professional deliver sophisticated and dynamic lighting and visual effects.
Adding to that is a suite of state- of-theart audiovisual equipment – from motorised projection screens that can be customised for any banquet con guration, to highde nition laser projectors engineered to deliver crisp graphics.
All these translate to a Grand Ballroom that offers more than a venue – it is one that offers a world- class experience for all who enter its embrace.
