Drawing inspiration from the vibrant hawker centres of Singapore and Malaysia, Chapel Street’s Hawker Hall hums with an inimitable energy.
160 diners can seat under high exposed ceilings, beneath strings of festoon lights and rows of vertical signs advertising mock hawker stalls: “Chong Lee economy noodle”, “Open late for hungry people” and so on.
In keeping with signature Lucas Group style, our design needed a sense of humour injected into it – to remind diners not to take things too seriously. They are here for a good time.
Usually an uneventful experience, Hawker Hall’s unisex bathrooms are part of this fun. We designed an infinity ceiling and feature bird cages over a custom steel vanity unit, while directions in a foreign language are played over speakers to provide an even more immersive experience.
Hawker Hall was a collaborative project prior to our rebrand, by Eades and Bergman and Craig Tan Architects.
