Lucky Shophouse awarded Unesco jury for innovation

Lucky Shophouse, a residential home in Joo Chiat that was formerly Lucky Bookstore, was also awarded the Unesco jury commendation for innovation.

The Unesco panel – comprising international conservation experts – noted that the shophouse project, transformed by Chang Architects, played up historic textures and colours while celebrating functionalism inherent in early 21st century design.

The awards programme recognises the efforts of private individuals and organisations that have successfully restored and conserved structures and buildings of heritage value in the region.
