Designed in partnership with architecture studio Zarch Collaboratives and creative agency Asylum, this hotel references its past as a depository for spices while carving out a modern identity.

The heritage building’s original structure has been carefully restored, with a new extension added for its rooftop pool, while its interiors marry industrial elements with a contemporary spin.

The hotel has also collaborated with homegrown brands such as local kiln Mudrock, and textile and clothing label Matter Prints to add decorative tactile accents to its rooms and common areas. It is also decorated with artworks by Asian artists including Robert Zhao Renhui and Dawn Ng.

The Warehouse Hotel’s perfect marriage of contemporary style with sleek details resonates with LG, echoing its commitment to innovation. Each of its products is a perfect harmony of streamlined design and cutting-edge technology.

Innovative pursuits form the core of the South Korean electronics giant, and it continues to push the boundaries of design and technology in changing the way we live, work and play. In recognition of its achievements, LG received 17 Innovation Awards at the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, across multiple categories including home appliances, home entertainment and mobile.

Artificial intelligence platform Deepthin1 features voice navigation, video and sensor recognition, and space and motion detection; it’s also able to personalise its controls based on how you use other compatible LG devices. Deepthinq will be integrated into new and upcoming LG mobile devices and home appliances including its TVs, air conditioners, air purifiers and robotic vacuum cleaners.

The HU80KA series projector is able to produce a cinematic experience in any room. Whether placed on the floor, mounted on the wall or hung from the ceiling, it beams a 150-inch screen at 4K picture quality at 2,500 lumens (making it LG’s brightest projector to date) onto any flat surface. It also features built-in speakers, and is able to support online streaming services and HDR (high dynamic range) content.

The LG OLED Canyon is a show-stopping installation that features over 240 open-frame OLED (organic light-emitting diode) displays, highlighting the creative possibilities of LG’s screen technology. Intended for commercial and art displays, the 28-metre-long trail features concave and convex screens alongside immersive Dolby Atmos audio (included in the 2018 range of OLED TVs) to broadcast the sights and sounds of lush forestry and other natural wonders.

Created in partnership with English manufacturer Meridian Audio, the SK10Y soundbar is able to deliver immersive sound with Dolby Atmos technology. Its slim profile also makes it a sleek and discreet addition to any TV console. Pair it with the Google Assistant-enabled Thinq speaker and the portable PK series for the complete audio experience—the latter also includes dynamic party lighting and handy grips.
