Citylights, Jellicoe Road 

Citylights is a residential development overlooking the Kallang Basin in Singapore. Besides three high-rise towers of 42 storeys each, the complex also includes a group of 16 2-storey Art Deco shophouses built in the late 1920s by the Swiss engineer Heinrich Rudolf Arbenz. The concrete-and-brick fabric of these structures, decayed due to neglect in recent years, has been preserved and their interiors modernized to create luxury townhouses.
