This pair of 3.5-storey shophouses is in the heart of Chinatown and within walking distance of Maxwell MRT Station.
South Bridge Road grew in importance when it became a link between the town and New Harbour for Import and export businesses, including assorted wholesale and retail merchant traders, godowns and goldsmith shops between the Chinese community in Chinatown and the European merchants near the Singapore River. This area, renowned for its rich tapestry of cultural and commercial activity, has been a vital part of the city’s growth, dating back to when South Bridge Road was a crucial link in the trade routes connecting different parts of the island.
277 South Bridge Road draws inspiration from the passage of time and the rich merchant history of the Singapore River and its surroundings. This area, once bustling with merchants and goldsmiths along the harbour, is captured through a very particular use of materials and colours. A palette of white, cream and light gold reminisces the shimmer of the river while deeply textured surfaces of stone and timber within the interior evoke a layered history, each contour a fleeting story of the past. Ambient and curated lighting highlights these textures and creates a contrast against smooth, porcelain-like finishes, bringing back a sense of the fine craftsmanship and historical significance of its location.
In recent years, South Bridge Road has undergone a significant transformation. The street has retained its historical charm while adapting to the modern needs of the city. Many of the traditional shophouses have been beautifully restored, showcasing a blend of Chinese, Malay, and European architectural styles. These shophouses now house trendy cafes, boutique stores, art galleries, and hip eateries, attracting locals and tourists. The area has also seen the rise of boutique hotels and co-working spaces. Despite the transformation, South Bridge Road still retains its cultural heritage, with annual events such as Chinese New Year celebrations and the Mid-Autumn Festival drawing crowds to experience the vibrant traditions of the area. Today, South Bridge Road is a vibrant and thriving destination, blending old and new.
