Once the tallest building in Southeast Asia in the 1950s, this former Asia Insurance building has been sensitively restored into a premier service apartment. Care was taken to preserve the art deco architecture, including the crown at the top installed to mark the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
Careful restoration and design work creatively addressed the challenge of drastically changing the layout of the office tower to fit the residential suites while retaining its original features. Over 300 steel window frames were restored and sound proofed. The world?s first high rise mail chute in the 1880s was also kept.
