It's a beautiful colorful old building. The history of Singapore that this building saw. The police officers and their families lived in this building in the old days. Some excellent art work and galleries in the lower floors.

Such a colorful building whether walking the street or if seen from the Bumboats. The Hill Street Building, MICA Building, was the old Hill Street Police Station, when the Japanese took over. Lots of urban legends about the building like it was the HQ for the Kempeitai (the Japanese secret police.) Lots of interesting stories about this building on the internet.

This former police station, is a historically listed as a national monument which is located right along Clarke Quay.

The facade of the multi-coloured windows stands out and makes for a nice photograph.

Although a listed monument, it is not actually an attraction as such.

A simple concept. All the windows are colourfully painted with Bright colours. It is actually a Police station but an ordinary building is turned into a spectacular one just by adding colours. You can't miss it and you can't resist clicking few pics.
