Different Architechural Styles

Conservation shophouses in Singapore are buildings that have been preserved and restored to their original architectural styles. There are several styles of conservation shophouses in Singapore, including:
1. Early Shophouse Style: These shophouses were built between the 1840s and 1900s and are characterized by their simple facades with minimal ornamentation. Conservation shophouses in this style feature restored façades with ornate carvings and decorations.
2. Late Shophouse Style: These shophouses were built between the 1900s and 1940s and are more decorative than their early counterparts. Conservation shophouses in this style have elaborate facades with restored carvings, mouldings, and decorations.
3. Art Deco Style: Art Deco shophouses were built in the 1920s and 1930s and feature geometric shapes, bold colors, and stylized ornamentation. Conservation shophouses in this style have restored facades with intricate wrought ironwork and striking colors.
4. Modernist Style: Modernist shophouses were built in the 1950s and 1960s and feature clean lines, flat roofs, and minimal ornamentation. Conservation shophouses in this style have been restored to their original designs with restored façades and open floor plans.
5. Tropical Style: Tropical shophouses were built in the mid-20th century and are characterized by their use of natural materials, such as wood and stone, and their incorporation of indoor-outdoor spaces. Conservation shophouses in this style feature restored facades and restored courtyards, verandahs, and balconies.
6. Contemporary Style: Contemporary shophouses are a recent development and feature modern design elements, such as clean lines, minimalism, and the use of glass and steel. Conservation shophouses in this style have been restored to their original designs with eco-friendly features, such as rainwater harvesting systems and green roofs.
