Tan Chin Tuan Mansion

Built in the early 1930s and newly renovated in 2008, the 2-storey Tan Chin Tuan Mansion stands tall as an outstanding conservation effort and modern day engineering marvel. Seated along Cairnhill Road, it faces the future as a beautifully restored mansion, fronting a stunning new 20-storey residential tower.

Built in the 1930s, the house was acquired by the late banker & philanthropist, Tan Sri (Dr) Tan Chin Tuan, just before World War II broke out in 1939.

For almost six-decades, this 2-storey bungalow was occupied by the late Tan Sri, and used as a private residence by the Tan family for decades.

After four years, the restored mansion was finally ready in July 2006. Since then, it has been used as a hub for business and social events for the Tan Chin Tuan Foundation and the Tecity Group, the privately-held investment group of companies that funds the Foundation.

The house fuses colonial architecture and Peranakan influences and contains memorabilia chronicling the life of Tan Sri (Dr) Tan Chin Tuan.



This new 20-storey residential block, designed by the late banker and philanthropist, was added when the mansion went through its makeover in 2004.  It was built so that it cantilevers the old mansion, creating a unique backdrop for the colonial-era mansion. 

This unique integration of a new 20-storey residential tower into the 1930s mansion despite the tight site has won the mansion the 2008 URA Architectural Award (Category B), which is for projects that have innovatively combined the ‘old’ and the ‘new’.
