Singapore’s oldest surviving government building, the Old Parliament House was originally built as the residence of Scottish merchant John Argyle Maxwell in the late 1820s. It was designed in Neo-Palladian style by G.D. Coleman, an architect who was to shape much of Singapore’s urban landscape. Maxwell leased it to the government for use as a courthouse. In the 1950s, it became the colonial government’s Assembly House, and in 1962, the Parliament House of the independent state. The bronze elephant outside the building was a gift from the Thai monarch, Rama V, after his 1871 visit to Singapore.
A new Parliament House was built nearby in 1999. In 2004, after careful restoration, the old building was converted into The Arts House, an elegant arts and heritage space. The center offers a range of contemporary visual and performance arts, art house movies and improvisational theater.
