Description:
The Singapore shophouse is an architectural gem - a particular building form that is unique to the island. This book traces its development from rudimentary shophouse through various incarnations of decorative style - Neoclassical, Chinese Baroque,Jubilee-style, Edwardian, Rococo, Tropical Modern - all the while commenting on the various influences that fuelled its evolution. Each individual feature of the shophouse is examined, as is its change from rudimentary out-of-China structure to sophisticated dwelling house. Numerous examples of shophouse interiors today complete the odyssey - showcasing Shophouse as Temple, Clan House, Home, Boutique Hotel, Shop, Restaurant Coffeeshop and more, we see how these heritage buildings continue to be relevant in the era of the skyscraper and shopping mall. This is the first qualitative study of neo Chinese architecture and how it was effectively adapted by successive colonial authorities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries so much so that its enduring qualities of form and function continues to resonate.
