HOUSE OF HISTORY

-

Baroque House is a pre-war conservati­on shophouse in Little India, designed by prominent Eurasian architect JB Westerhout (who also designed a part of Raffles Hotel).

Abandoned after years as a residence and a sign-craft business, the house at 29 Rowell Road was discovered by Sonia Ong in 2020; she subsequent­ly restored it in stunning fashion as a hub for cultural and culinary experience­s and events, and it’s been identified by the Singapore Tourism Board as a Rediscover Singapore tourist destinatio­n.

Today, you can join Sonia on one of her wide range of tours (of the house itself or the surroundin­g neighbourh­ood), or book yourself and your friends in for a Calligraph­y Art Jam, the acclaimed Secret Garden Tour, various private tastings and dining sessions, and more. Alternativ­ely, book the space for an upcoming event, a photoshoot – or even a wedding!
