[Mercurio Design Lab S.r.l. - Dusit Thani Laguna - COVER IMG] Inspired by the green undulating golf course, the sleek, curvilinear form of Dusit Thani Laguna, which soars over a six-storey hotel and three-storey redesigned clubhouse, resembles the mounds and the surging landscape of the property.

Nestled in the former Laguna National Golf & Country Club in Singapore, Dusit Thani Laguna, an integrated golf resort and five-star hotel project, took its design inspiration from the gentle undulations of the golf course. Its sleek curvilinear roof thrusts up out of the landscape, sweeping up from the ground to create a shelter for the hotel before surging on to cover the existing clubhouse. The swooping roof doesn't just enclose the building but becomes the body and features a seamless surface, blending smoothly with the surroundings and minimizing the architectural violence in the scenery.
