Colonial Architecture is extremely prominent in Singapore. During the late 40s and early 60s, when the British ruled Singapore, many historical buildings in Singapore were built, both public and residential buildings and make up some of Singapore’s iconic architecture.

Some of the historic colonial style buildings include: the Old Supreme Court, St. Andrews Cathedral and the National Museum of Singapore. Each of these buildings illustrate European Neoclassical and Palladian elements in their architectural design.

Besides public historical buildings, the British also built residential buildings around Singapore. Two storey, black and white Tudor bungalows, distinctly recognisable from its black timber and white washed walls. If that sounds at all familiar to you those buildings were also built by the British.
