The Botanical Art Gallery is housed within Singapore Botanic Gardens' second refurbished conserved building, Gallop House No. 7 (Inverturret), which was built in 1906. The gallery highlights the vital role that art plays in the scientific documentation of plants in Singapore and the region, as well as how art can inspire renewed appreciation of the natural world around us. This will be Singapore’s first permanent display of botanical art, where visitors will be able to see a selection of the Singapore Botanic Gardens’ collection that includes more than 2,000 botanical paintings, as well as hundreds of sketches, line drawings and photographs. The display will also showcase various art forms, from original watercolours and ink drawings to prints and printing blocks.
Some of the iconic artwork on display includes the oldest dated painting in the Gardens’ collection completed in 1890, of Phaius tankervilleae, an orchid which grows in freshwater swamp forests, as well as an illustration of Durio singaporensis, which is commonly known as the Singapore Durian.
Visitors will also be able to try their hand at the various techniques involved in botanical illustration, such as sketching, mixing colours, and composing scenes. The activity room also offers sweeping views of the forested areas surrounding the house.
The Botanical Art Gallery will also feature changing exhibitions that complement the Gardens’ permanent artwork collection. The first show, ‘Plants in Print’, will showcase a collection of rare books that records the development of early colonial botany in South and Southeast Asia. Local artists such as Shubigi Rao and Weixin Chong have also been commissioned to offer creative responses to these books and produce a series of contemporary artworks.
Gallop House No. 5 (Atbara) is Singapore’s oldest surviving colonial era or black-and-white bungalow. Built in 1898, it now houses the Forest Discovery Centre @ OCBC Arboretum, which showcases Singapore’s forest ecosystems, and highlights the importance of conserving them. Through a series of interpretive and interactive displays, visitors can enjoy a bird's eye view of Singapore’s diverse forests, and learn about the Gardens’ historical role in conserving them. Highlights include a photographic installation of forest trees, family-friendly displays and videos featuring three distinctive forest habitats found in Singapore, and their unique flora and fauna.
The Forest Discovery Centre @ OCBC Arboretum will also host the Singapore Botanic Gardens’ Tropical Forest Ecology Research programme. This programme reprises a historical role for the Singapore Botanic Gardens, which dates back to the late 1800s. One of the Gardens’ early superintendents, Nathaniel Cantley, was tasked to survey the forests in the Straits Settlement in 1882. His report led to the demarcation of the first forest reserves in Singapore in 1884, in order to prevent the ecology and climate from further deteriorating.
Complementing the Forest Discovery Centre is the OCBC Arboretum, which is a first-of-its-kind high-tech arboretum in Southeast Asia. Opened in October 2019, the arboretum plays an important role in the Gardens’ conservation work, housing and displaying the Gardens’ growing collection of rare dipterocarps.

This month, SPRMRKT joins a new neighbourhood – the verdant and idyllic Dempsey Hill, with an inspired space and a new cultural-culinary experience through dining, retail and art.
2012 saw the beginnings of the lifestyle F&B brand in a shophouse on McCallum Street favoured by city dwellers as an oasis to the hustle and bustle of CBD life. Eight years later, SPRMRKT has grown into a familiar neighbourhood name; from the bustling central business district to the riverside respite of Robertson Quay, quaint Cluny residential area, and now, at the heart of the Dempsey Hill lifestyle enclave.
Just like its name without the vowels, SPRMRKT is about simplicity, focusing on what matters. At the heart of it is responsibly sourced ingredients prepared meticulously to let their natural flavours shine; warm, friendly service centred on the diner; a showcase of carefully sourced gourmet brands from Singapore and around the region with the aim of giving back; and thoughtful collaborations that support young artists and creatives.
With Head Chef Marc Wee helming the kitchens of SPRMRKT, the all-new menus – first launching at SPRMRKT at Dempsey Hill, are thoughtful and produce-driven, highlighting vegetable-forward cuisine in the evening and café-style fare in the day. His creations start with the ingredients. The heightened necessity of sourcing and eating responsibly guides when and how he should use the freshest, quality produce picked at their best for the most flavour. Diversely prepared to bring out their intrinsic flavours, without compromising on taste.
The café-style menu has sumptuous offerings for the day, starting with breakfast and brunch items like the moreish Cheese on Toast, a wholemeal sandwich of cheddar and parmesan cheese with luscious truffle bechamel, and for something lighter, the House-made Granolatopped with seasonal fruits and honey yoghurt. A healthful yet satisfying meal that can be had on its own is the grain bowls with a choice from three variations – Tri-Coloured Quinoa, Black Barley and Aburi Salmon with organic Cambodian brown rice. Asian flavours add interest with the spicy sambal tomato option in the Prawn Pasta as well as a savoury coconut and green chilli sauce over a tender Chicken Confit. The signature Blackened Fish & Chips remains as a mainstay along with a juicy Wagyu Beef Burger. There are also vegetable-forward dishes that make delish snacks as with the Brussel Sprouts tossed with burnt corn, pomegranate, siracha mayo and sea salt, as well as the addictive Tofu Fries served with house-made garlic aioli.
Another reason to drop by SPRMRKT at Dempsey Hill is the house-baked goods fresh from the oven, enticing with their lingering aroma. The range varies daily and includes breads, pastries and tea cakes, as well as must-haves like the Olive Oil Cake and Chiffon Cake in flavours of lychee, strawberry and pandan.
Exclusive on the weekends, listen out for the ice cream man ringing the bell as SPRMRKT at Dempsey Hill brings a little nostalgia to the neighbourhood with the Durian Semifreddo Wafer Sandwich. The frozen semifreddo is house made with luscious D24 durian pulp cocooned in a crispy wafer with vanilla and caramel notes; great for on the go or at the breezy veranda.

With its bold makeover, FOC PIM PAM is that magical place; now more than ever.

Desserts like Lemon Lemoncello (limoncello sorbet, meringue), and ‘Chocolate Forest’ (chocolate textures, yogurt, white chocolate passionfruit jelly) will be hard to resist.
Alongside these are familiar favourites, including Croquetas in different fillings (ham, mushroom, crab, and spinach & pine nuts), Squid Ink Paella (tradiPonal Spanish black rice, prawns, aioli), and Churros - classic with chocolate sauce or white chocolate-coated.
The famed Spanish penchant for lush, leisurely dining will work its spell, and the party will surely thereafer adjourn to the newly created alfresco terrace, housed in a ceiling-fanned veranda perched street-side along Orchard Road.
