In the Steps of G.D. Coleman


Visit the masterpieces of G.D. Coleman, Singapore’s first-known architect, who designed the earliest churches and many of the bungalows that lined the Esplanade.

Admire one of the residences Coleman designed, which unlike his own home, avoided the wrecking ball. Step into the oldest Christian church in Singapore and hear stories of the Armenians whom the church was built for. Find out why Coleman has a street and bridge named after him as you walk in the steps of G.D. Coleman!
