Double Lives


Busy fire station. Important government building. Fancy arts venue. But take a step back in time, and one word brings these three buildings together: home.

Hear stories about firemen and policemen who once stayed at Singapore’s oldest-surviving fire station and police station, and the many occupants of the Arts House which was originally built as a private residence. Discover a side of these buildings you’ve never seen before in Double Lives!

Monuments covered: Central Fire Station, Former Hill Street Police Station, Former Parliament House (now The Arts House)

Starting point: Opposite Central Fire Station (Taxi stand of Funan DigiLife Mall)
