Singapore Shop House Renovation

Another fun find from the Real Estate section of The New York Times: Marcel Heijnen and Dawn Mok renovated a historic "shop house" in Singapore — a shop house is typically a two- or three-story row building that often has commercial space on the ground floor and residences above. Many of these older building were demolished in the 60s and 70s as part of a plan to modernize Singapore. Though it's in a historic context, the couple's 3,000-square-foot house is very modern on the inside...

To add natural light in the long and narrow space, they had a light shaft from the roof built during the renovation. See the full story: In Singapore, a Renovated Shop House and slideshow.
