A Heritage Retold, Reimagined.

Amongst the bustling streets where historic Chinatown meets the vibrant bustle of Clarke Quay, stands a notable remittance house, Chye Hua Seng Wee Kee. Founded in 1936 by prominent local philanthropist, Mr Lee Wee Nam and his brothers, this establishment was a place of special significance for the first generation of Singaporean immigrants. More than simply money transfers, remittances were emotional connections and ties to their distant homes.

Today, reimagined and restored by award-winning architects WOHA, this remarkable structure has been revived as the exquisite boutique hotel, 21 Carpenter. With a dedication to preserving its rich heritage, 21 Carpenter proudly marks its resurgence as an iconic institution, bridging the past with the present.


21 Carpenter thoughtfully offers a unique balance of stimulation and pause.

From the vibrancy of the neo-bistro and bar to the serenity of the forty-eight exquisite guest rooms, as well as a relaxing garden terrace, and a breathtaking rooftop infinity pool & lounge, 21 Carpenter promises an unforgettable stay.
