Muntri Mews was the second project undertaken by Chris Ong back in 2009. Formerly, it was a communal parking for horse carriages. Under Ong’s skilful touch, the collection of Edwardian era buildings, which were in various stages of disrepair at that time, was transformed into contemporary accommodation, complete with original wooden windows, doors and roof trusses.
The Grade II heritage building was originally the mews meant for the row of grand terrace houses built along the street during an era of affluence. The rooms upstairs were originally built as quarters for drivers and syce at that time. The long verandah that connected the rooms had remained, lending a feel of communal living amongst the workers during that period. This led to a common set of bathroom and kitchen that serviced the people that lived there.
