“It was an enjoyable experience to work as a team with NUS School Of Architecture on this project. Being passionate ourselves as regards to Heritage Buildings, we are pleased that the end result embodies the care and respect given to this building to carry on its new function. We strongly believe that Conservation and Restoration works must be approached with respect and humility. Recognition to the physical parts of the past shows respect given to its historical phase. Beyond every space, the materials used and workmanship, lies the human values of love and the spirit of the people behind it. Within these walls lies the roots and foundation of the physical reference of our rich heritage for the future.”
