Initially a Kampong (village) battling with issues of overcrowding and poor sanitation, Tiong Bahru became the first test site for public housing in Singapore. The hilly and swampy burial site was converted into a livable infrastructure to accommodate 13,500 residents.
The early estates reflected a blend of local and imported styles, such as Art Deco and International Style. As a popular style in Europe at that time, the architects were inspired by the simple and clear lines, which has become an iconic feature of the Tiong Bahru neighbourhood.
One of the features of the neighbourhood is Tiong Bahru Market, famous for local food favourites such as ‘Chwee Kueh’. With initial beginnings as a “simple wooden structure with a zinc pitched roof”, it is now a multi storeyed hawker centre/wet market, catering to many of the residents and Singaporeans around.
