The NCO Club (known previously as the NAAFI Britannia Club) served as a vital social amenity for non-commissioned officers and their families since 1952. Gazetted alongside Blocks 1, 9 and 14 of the Beach Road Camp for conservation by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), it was one of the first modern architectural heritage buildings to be conserved in Singapore.
The NCO Club is a building that has been synonymous with the spirit of patriotism and nascent nationalism in Singapore bearing great historical, social and political significance as a place where generations of military servicemen congregated and interacted in an egalitarian, multi- ethnic setting. This was a significant milestone in Singapore’s colonial history.
Together, the four conservation buildings form a unique enclave that embodies different eras in Singapore’s history, expressed through their varied architecture. Like the conserved pre-war Tiong Bahru estate, Blocks 1, 9 and 14 reflect early Modernism with inflections of the Art Deco style. On the other hand, the NCO Club is characteristic of the more austere post-war Modernism and is one of the rare intact examples of modernist architectural heritage in Singapore. They are also representative of a milestone in Singapore’s conservation history where the buildings are neither part of a historic shop house district, nor individual monuments, but a cluster of historically and functionally-related institutional buildings.

Asia’s foremost design collective, Paperspace, has launched Paperwork Singapore, its third co-creation space following highly successful launches in Manila and Bangkok.
Housed in the National Design Centre (NDC), Paperwork aims to be a hub for design-preneurs to facilitate greater collaboration and innovation within the design industry. The multi-functional space will also showcase furniture, art and design brands from around the world, making Paperwork the first of its kind in Singapore.
Nurturing a community of designers.
Paperwork is the brainchild of Paperspace founders Narita Cheah (Singapore), Sombat Ngamchlermsak (Thailand) and Karen Calalec (The Philippines), born out of a need to provide a working space to support the collaborative nature of Paperspace’s design partners. It is now the design collective’s new office and set to be a think-tank for developing new, comprehensive design through non-traditional practices and technology.
New and existing local and international design studios and creatives, such as Graphite Studio, Independent Consultants, Just Sketch, M.lab Project and Studio of Design have already taken up tenancy at Paperwork - a testament to the design collective’s strong clout within the industry.
Spanning 3,500 square feet with seating capacity of 60, Paperwork has been thoughtfully designed to foster seamless exchanges and work flows. The space was designed not by one designer, but collectively by the members of Paperspace, in a creative exchange of ideas with the various designers and external design brands who were invited to showcase specific items within the space.
