I remember me and frens were speculating that the old house behind Tanglin Mall was haunted.

The colour orange so obiang, but not as scary as the Red House at Pasir Ris...

Seriously they should renovate it and turn it into a disco.

To me the first 2 houses are masterpieces, should be preserved.There are several house in Katong in the same, but 'simplier' style.

Some info on that orange house - its called Chee Guan Chiang House built in 1938.

architect - Ho Kwong Yew

"The design is distinctly Modern in its language, and is influenced by the architecture of the Weissenhof Siedlung in Stuttgart in 1927 and by Erich Mendelsohn's design for the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill (UK) in 1935. The house has a plan that employs a semi-circular 'bow window' on an axis in a similar manner to the Bexhill pavilion."

-Singapore Architecture

I sent out 3 times.

I suggested Clifford Pier, 19 Cecil Street, Ogilvy Centre, Capitol Building & Cinema, St Joseph's Church, Horsburgh Lighthouse, Sultan Shoal Lighthouse, Raffles Lighthouse, Cavenagh, Anderson & Elgin Bridges, Balestier Seventh-Day Adventist Church, St James Powerhouse, Bowyer Block Clock Tower (SGH), Old KK Hospital, Alexandra Hosp., Old Kallang Airport Building, AI Building, Old Bank of China Building, Old New World Entrance arch and Beaulieu House (I kinda forgot the others) as National Monuments.

They do reply.

Although I doubt the AI and BOC would be preserved, I still try.

Bowyer is in a pathetic state.Once a grand Neo-Classical building, remained Neo-Cassical is clock tower and the lobby.

wow! Who own them? They are quite a number of abandoned colonial-era mansions in KL too. There is a big one beside zouk kl and the owners refused to sell the land. If I were them, I'll do what Raffles suggested . The first private house in KL to receive electricity is also abandoned but preserved.

Are the first two mansions in the same compound?
Actually, with renovation, the first two can be turned into amazing houses, glassy facades and all, with some designer furniture to complete the posh urban look.
Change the balcony railings to glass, paint it pure white, break the wall behind the balcony and build an open living area with B&B's UP 2000 series.


The last one can be turned into a high-end asian restaurant.

Can be seen at the right, along with the Tangs' house, which will be sold.All 3 mansions have the address of 25 Grange Road, in the same compound.

I received an odd email from the NHB that says to call the Executive Secretary of the PMB personally so as "It would help expedite our evaluation if you could share your views with us".

What does it mean?I had emailed them like the 4th time name, using my real name.
