This Saturday, we're visiting a quiet and lovely street, between Sophia Road, and Mackenzie Road.
- outside Starbucks
- outside facing Mackenzie Road
The shophouses lining Niven Road are largely residences, with a few highlights such as Sophia Flats, the Khalsa Dharmak Sabha and a couple of intact Streamline Moderne Art Deco facades. There's also the David Elias Building just across from Wilkie Edge along Selegie Road, and the @Ellison Building at the Mackenzie end, slated for partial demolition.
Sketchers are also free to explore backlanes, and adjacent streets such as Wilkie and Mt Emily Road.
Architect and fellow sketcher Ian Tan has kindly volunteered to give a short background of the area and the mentioned landmarks during the session.
See you there!
