FROM THE ASHES
Restoring House after Fire
Burmah Road, Penang
Built in the early of 1932, the house was designed in late straits eclectic style. It burned to the ground in 2016 caused by short circuits. The damage was so extensive that the owner need to strip most of the building component down and restore the house.
The way we live now is very different from the way we lived in the past. Restoring or renovating a period house is a delicate balance between rescuing the features of the past and providing the living spaces we expect today. The design blend both classic and contemporary design elements. The traditional exterior of the house was kept intact and shows no signs of the contemporary interior.
