Singapore Art Museum

A gazetted national monument since 14 February 1992, the former St. Joseph’s Institution along Bras Basah Road was sensitively restored to be converted to the Singapore Art Museum. Works were done with the policy of maximum retention practised. Original elements such as roof tiles, floor tiles and Corinthian columns were preserved or restored. Modern features such as large frameless glass panels and air-conditioning were added while retaining the original character of the building. Kimly is proud to have received the Architectural Heritage Award in 1996 for our work on this national monument.
