Stamford House

I was walking past this building today and looking up, noted its age, 1904 inscribed on its curved central pediment. If you click to enlarge, you can see it for yourself. I think the building looks spectacular. Its ornate friezes in the style of Victorian Renaissance architecture seems almost surreal in contrast with other modern prosaic buildings near it. The building has been gorgeously restored in the early 90s.
It's just a hop and a skip from City Hall MRT. If you dip into the building, you'll enjoy walking on its tropical hardwood chengai lining its interior flooring which has replaced the old rotten floorboards, and skylight that filter into its central arcade, not to mention the cool airconditioning. Its mix of tenants leans towards interior furnishings and art.

  1. Very nice photos. I love the interior of this building. The exterior is equally nice.

    Have a nice weekend.

  2. A favorite, reading your notes of buildings about the city makes more informative and interesting. Seems like the sky has some clouds forming in the background, though.

    Have a good weekend, Irene.


Great to see you ~Irene
