Bringing timber expertise and craftsmanship to every solution.
The 152 year old Victoria Concert Hall plays an important part in Singapore’s growing arts and cultural landscape. It is not only a gazetted national monument, but fills an important role as the home of the Singapore Symphony Orchestra.
As part of the S$180 million refurbishment of the Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall, Perswood’s Ipe Walnut from South America was used in along with restored wood from the original 1905 structure. It was the perfect marriage of old and new. We also had to ensure that our work with the timber did not compromise the acoustics of the concert hall. Perswood is proud to have been part of this project to enhance the monumentality of this heritage building.
