The shophouse is an important element in the study of how the Malay streetscapes evolved demonstrating the negotiations between the strict Dutch planning regulations of the 17th & 18th Century and the commercial and domestic needs of the urban population. Singapore architect Chan Soo Khian (SCDA Architects) renovated this historic site in 2002 on a meagre budget as a meditation centre that sympathetically recalls it's previous use as an urban residence.
