"Venetian Renaissance Beauty"
Lying nestled amid the contemporary hubbub of downtown Singapore, the ornate and elegant Stamford House was constructed in 1904 and was based on the designs of Regent Alfred John Bidwell, who styled the building in the Venetian Renaissance tradition. Its visage complete with a tapestry of intricate carvings, Stamford House began its life as an office complex, at which time it was known as the Oranje Building. The building is interspersed with finer nuances of the High Victorian times, and boasts features like a graceful central pediment, sharp arches and picturesque Venetian windows. For a time, a part of the building was used as an annex by the Raffles Hotel and was later transformed into the stylishly elegant Oranje Hotel. After years of neglect, the Stamford House was restored to its former glory and converted into a shopping mall housing various niche boutiques. Today, the historic edifice has been integrated into a luxurious complex, and together with the Capitol Building, the Capitol Theater and the Capitol Piazza, it now houses a theater, shopping mall, a luxury hotel, exclusive apartments and restaurants.
