About the House
32 Petain features a minimal retro feel. White walls and furniture are met with pops of colour. Framed movie posters hang from the living and dining room walls. Wooden doors with gold knobs reminiscent of old-school elevators make an inviting entrance with a hint of personality.
This is an iconic and beautifully conserved Late-style shophouses along Petain Road. While the facades feature ornamental European architectural styles and motifs of the East, the interiors are an eclectic mix of styles that feel unique and personal.

Diversity at every corner.
Petain Road is located at the cusp of Little India and Jalan Besar. Home to people of diverse ages, ethnicities, abilities, and nationalities, it’s a colourful district during the day and the night. As one member said, “When you walk out the door, there are three different directions and three different experiences. Straight ahead is the buzz of Little India. To the left is the hipster area of Jalan Besar. And to the right is the relatively quiet and residential streets of Farrer Park.”
