Text description provided by the architects. At the heart of the client’s brief was an aspiration to pay tribute to the original shophouses that used to occupy the site.

1919 draws inspiration from the rich history of its surroundings to create a 21st century version of the celebrated black and white house. Much effort and thought has been devoted to bring the trademark features back to life and integrate contemporary design, materials and construction techniques.
