Why the name Shophouse Sixtyfive?

Shophouses are a typical Singaporean structure, sure, they do appear in other countries, but no other residential type buildings in Singapore evoke more nostalgia than Shophouses. Like the name suggests they are both a shop and a house in one. Similarly I wanted Shophouse Sixtyfive, to not just be a retailer, but a business that melds
the nostalgia of old school Singapore with the comforts of home.
The Sixtyfive comes from 1965 the year of Singapore’s independence, a reminder of our brief but colourful history as a city state.(And if you notice its also Singapore international calling code +65)
