MERCURIO DESIGN LAB S.r.l. (MDL) is an award-winning Italian design studio that creates avant-garde concepts inspired by the vibrancy of Asia. The team is composed of passionate architects, engineers, designers, and artists who integrate art with technology in the design process while respecting the three fundamental criteria: the functional, the aesthetic, and the social.
Inspired by the undulating green landscape of the golf course, Dusit Thani Laguna, nestled in the renowned Laguna National Golf & Country Club in Singapore, is an urban golf resort development which features a union of a world-class golf club and a Dusit Thani-branded hotel.
The design story of Dusit Thani Laguna began with a single yet powerful image—a simple line that rises from one end and falls on the other. Striking and ever so remarkable, MDL takes pride in being able to craft this because not all structures can boast of being represented by a singular pencil stroke. The sketch represents the gentle undulation of the golf course—a perfect complement to the ground that Dusit Thani Laguna stands on.
The awkward marriage of two buildings with largely different functions – a hotel and clubhouse – is disguised by a single unified roof. The sleek, curvilinear form of the roof which makes the architecture of the building, displays a uniform seamless surface with no visible joints, complementing the surging gorgeous landscape of the golf course.
Dusit Thani Laguna represents a new model, one which combines different functions and one in which the course and the facilities form a unity. A renowned golf destination both regionally and locally, it hosts international tournaments and major championships and boasts facilities that are perfect for business and leisure.
