The ultra exclusive Mandarin Gallery is where style and luxury meet fabulous retail therapy.
Just a glance at Mandarin Gallery’s gleaming glass façade clues you in on the pure luxury within. Boldly displayed larger than life, international designer names the likes of Montblanc and Emporio Armani front their respective flagship duplex boutiques, beckoning to sophisticated shoppers. Meanwhile, a pair of escalators takes pedestrians directly from the street outside up to the mall’s second floor.
Mandarin Gallery is indeed a dazzling gem along Orchard Road; a retail haven for the discerning fashionista and a gastronomic heaven for the epicurean with a taste for the finer things in life.
Following a S$200 million facelift in 2008, the four-level annexe to the Mandarin Orchard Singapore features over 100 fashion, lifestyle and food & beverage establishments united by a singular theme – luxury lifestyle.
The intimate interior space has been enhanced by well-known Japanese design firm AIM Create, which drew inspiration from elements of the modern Japanese tea room design; small yet rich, so as to highlight Mandarin Gallery’s unique internal spatial features and set the tone for a decidedly different ambience. This is achieved through the use of plenty of louvres to enhance the flow of air and create the illusion of a larger space.
