Eight conservation shophouses meet seven local architects—a collective project integrating contemporary design and creative functionality seamlessly with the traditional charm of the archetypal shophouse form.

The Lorong 24A Shophouse Series is a boutique development involving a row of 1920s shophouses on a quaint street in Geylang. Selected architects integrate the best of both worlds—every shophouse has a similar, carefully-conserved façade, but each door opens up into an intriguingly different spatial experience, with each shophouse having their own uniquely designed stand-out features.

  Considerable design freedom was accorded to the invited local architects, allowing them to explore the potential of each shophouse, breaking away from the standard design duplication present in most residential developments, refreshing notions of shophouse-living.

The curatorial approach taken to this development project allows tenants and residents to have their cake and eat it too
—enjoying both the harmonious beauty of the collective exteriors, as well as the individualistic characterizations of interior worlds they can be proud to call home.

  The Lorong 24A Shophouse Series was initiated and executed by Pocket Projects, a development consultancy firm specialising in boutique projects outside of the mainstream.

The Lorong24A Shophouse Series, comprising all eight units, has been awarded the URA Architectural Heritage Award (Category B) 2013. This is the first time a collective of shophouses have been recognized and awarded together. The URA Architectural Heritage serves to highlight projects where there is architectural innovation and excellence whilst preserving old heritage elements.

 

  Unit 19 has been honored with the URA Architectural Heritage Award (Category B) 2011, as well as the SIA (Singapore Institute of Architects) Design Award 2012. The SIA Architectural Design Awards is the most prestigious award conferred by SIA to promote and encourage distinction in architectural design.  

 


The unique designs of the shophouse units have contributed to their popularity in the property market, attracting higher rents and/or earlier tenancy. Potential purchasers have expressed keen interest in the units from the start of the project and completed units have been very well-received by their new tenants, many of whom tend to be looking for a different living experience from other developments in Singapore.

 

  Tenants have also fed back that they had considered renting other shophouses but had reservations because they fell short on design and practical livability until they found The Lorong 24A Shophouse Series.
