The National Archives of Singapore was revamped with a modern look and upgraded facilities, creating a welcoming and efficient space for the institution’s core functions of collecting, preserving and providing access to millions of historical records.

Originally the Anglo-Chinese Primary School building, the structure’s original concrete scallop canopy and veranda were reinstated to preserve the historical character of the building.

To make Singapore’s history more accessible to everyone, the revamped building featured new facilities and activities to engage the public such as a bigger capacity Oldham Theatre.
