21 Carpenter Main Entrance

The preservation of things that stand the test of time

Brought to life by award-winning architectural firm, WOHA Architects, 21 Carpenter is a masterpiece in reclaiming storied materials, emblems, and inscriptions from the original remittance house, giving them new life, and the possibility for new stories.


Paying homage to a storied past

In an ever changing world, 21 Carpenter recognizes the importance of staying connected to our cultural heritage; bridging the past with the present, and cultivating a sense of belonging. As we breath new life into 21 Carpenter’s storied history, we’ve carefully woven poignant verses from vintage remittance letters, into the elegant design of the aluminium facade.


Preserving the past to protect the future

We are proud to be custodians of 21 Carpenter’s fabled past, and privileged to be protectors of our community’s future.

In the way we work with and support the local community.
In our design vision of using reclaimed heritage materials.
In our operating policy of zero plastics across the entire hotel.

We stand by a more thoughtful approach to sustainability, and by a daily commitment to a greener tomorrow.
