BEYOND SINGAPORE SHOPHOUSE TILES

Singapore’s decorative tiles are often a favourite feature of shophouses, and loved by both local residents and tourists alike. I’m excited to bring together my passion for design and history in a unique project to uncover the stories behind Singapore’s decorative past. In exploring the cultural, historical and international connections of these beautiful surfaces in places of worship, we go beyond the shophouse facade to a unique and unchartered territory.
