MAK­ING A GRAND EN­TRANCE

Sher­a­ton Towers Sin­ga­pore un­veils the brand new Grand Ball­room af­ter multi-mil­lion re­vamp.

The Peak (Singapore) - - The Hot Seat -

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.
