This is our first venture into conservation and adaptive reuse. This old Nyonya-style family house fell into disrepair when the children flew the coop and the owners found the house too big for their needs. Michelle and Dino came up with the idea of turning the building into an Asian fusion restaurant. The original structure and architecture are largely unchanged. The addition of light glazed panels behind the original timber shutters facilitates air-conditioning.
