From the exterior, conservation shophouses seem to exude a certain old world charm, different from that of regular HDB flats or apartments that have been weathered with age as well. Thus, it’s always a treat to go inside these shophouses to have a look at what homeowners do with their unique space. Here are four drool-worthy shophouses for your viewing pleasure:


Due to the open-concept layout, this 500sqf apartment doesn’t look claustrophobic.



The large windows bring in ample sunlight, giving the home a warm glow.
