Five Oars: Heritage, Singapore

After the success of the latest outlet in the neighborhood of East Coast, Five Oars has returned to its original roots and reopened another outlet at Tanjong Pagar, where the brand first emerged.

Taking forward the look and feel and interior experience we first developed, we integrated the design of Five Oars with the context and surroundings through an earthy, minimalist palette, and considered detailing in a conserved shophouse.

Hand-applied coffee bar in soft hues, custom laid stone flooring, and timber joinery honours the local craftmanship while creating a refreshing approach, contemporary and inviting space.

Beyond the steel partitions that divide the dining area and restaurant, lined a capsule-shaped window that provides a glimpse to the adjacent hole-in-a-wall cocktail bar, Night Hawk.
