Macalister Mansion

The eight-room establishment pays tribute to Colonel Norman Macalister, the first British Governor of the state in the 1800s. Each of the eight rooms traces different periods of Colonel Macalister’s life through paintings by Southeast Asian artists. Behind the project are Dato Sean H’ng, Datin Karen H’ng and Colin Seah (of Singapore-based firm Ministry of Design). The design incorporates original features from more than 100 years ago like a wrought iron spiral staircase in the middle of one of the guestrooms leading to a viewing tower.
