Formerly the St. Joseph’s Institution and Chapel, the Singapore Art Museum is the home of the largest collections of modern and contemporary South East Asian artworks.
The original structure was built in 1852 and was a combination of reinforced concrete, masonry brickworks and timber.
The structure was unoccupied for a period prior to the restoration works and required significant repair.
JTK Consult (JTK) undertook the structural assessment, material technology consultancy and proposed the corresponding remedial design. The remedial design was devised to provide the necessary upgrading works to cater for the new intent while conserving the historical elements of the structure.
