The Charm of Compound Houses (Living Treasures: Singapore's Heritage Homes Series). Living Treasures: Singapore's Heritage Homes highlights the key architectural features of conserved houses. The editorial team, headed by former Member of Parliament Wan Hussin Zoohri, developed a list of historically significant types of homes in consultation with architectural historians and practising architects. Each of the 5 books in the series features one specific home style, and covers both the exteriors and interiors of the heritage houses, including those privately owned and seldom seen. There are also interviews of people who have lived in or are living in heritage houses, many of which are conserved. These pocketbooks are a boon to heritage buffs who want a visually appealing, bite-size introduction to Singapore's heritage homes.
