Black and White: The Singapore House 1898-1941 by Julian Davison
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Black and White house in Singapore is the most distinctive and imposing of the island's colonial architectural legacy. Surviving examples are testament to their physical and aesthetic durability - a unique tropical style with a colorful pedigree of architectural influences. Today these beautiful houses continue to serve their original purpose as gracious family homes but with others successfully adapted as restaurants, offices and artisan's studios. Written and photographed with flair and admiration, "Black and White" traces their evolution through the architects and practices that designed them - houses as relevant today as when they first appeared over a 100 years ago.
