About the House
- 13-15 minutes to CBD by car, depending on traffic
- 20-25 minutes by public transport
Sited in the famed Emerald Hill neighbourhood, this house takes its name after the old Palladium Theatre of the early 1900s. The theatre, which stood where Orchard Gateway presently stands, screened both Chinese and Western films and was a favourite haunt among residents back in the day.
The retro spirit is further imbued with the studios named after other notable bygone cinema establishments such as Roxy Cinema in East Coast Road and Odeon Theatre in North Bridge Road.
In this house, entertainment and play are just as natural as living and working. From the statement chandelier and massive sofas to the hammocks in the indoor courtyard, the communal living space on the first floor presents endless opportunities for mingling and merrymaking.
Upstairs, studios are furnished with plush contemporary pieces but jazzed up with luxe accents that were emblematic of the 1920s Art Deco style.
Saunders Road is a tranquil residential oasis just off Orchard Road. 313 Somerset, Lady M Cake Shop, and library@orchard are just some of the perks of living on this historic street.
Previously a nutmeg plantation, the area became a residential neighbourhood from the 1900s onwards. By the 1930s, much of the street was occupied by Straits Chinese families, descendants of early Chinese immigrants who married locals and settled in Southeast Asia.
