157 Neil Road, namely Baba House, is a three-storey townhouse located in Singapore’s historic district of Blair Plain.
Once the ancestral home of a Peranakan Chinese family, it has since become a heritage house and you can visit to experience a typical Peranakan Chinese family home of the early 20th century. It also facilitates research into architectural conservation, urban and social history, and cultural hybridity.
The Peranakans were the Chinese-Malay traders who brought spices from the Orient into Singapore, and the much-renowned Shophouses in Singapore were their live/work units.
I love this building because it is painted a vibrant ultramarine blue. The Peranakan culture is highly decorative and this elaborate design can be seen in their decorative tiles, clothes and food.
The phoenix and the peony are common symbols in Peranakan design and textiles and I've incorporated these elements into my piece.
