Black and White - Updated: The Singapore House 1898-1941
A major new survey of the architecture and style of colonial era houses in Singapore. The Black and White House is an enduring and much loved architectural feature of Singapore today with over 300 conserved examples of stylish tropical architecture. At once quintessentially English and at the same time ineffably Eastern exotic, the Black and White House has flourished as much for its innovative design and construction as well as for its comfort and aesthetic appeal. This is the first major book to examine these unique heritage houses of Singapore and to chronicle their fascinating history.
