SINGAPORE – In this rarely seen vantage of the Marina Bay area, grey-blue concrete and glass edifices stand as towering symbols of modernity and ambition. Yet cradled in their midst are the simple, orange-roofed low-rises of the generations that came before.
On the ground, the dichotomy is no less fascinating. Once serving as warehouses, homes, offices and shops, historic shophouses in the bustling business district now enjoy a new lease of life, offering refined pickings of a breadth befitting the world’s port-of-call.
