Traditionally, a shophouse has a narrow frontage with a sheltered corridor at the front for pedestrians. They have internal courtyards, open stairwells and skylights to bring light and air into otherwise dark and narrow interiors. Shophouses here display different architectural influences, often depending on when they were built. Several periods have been identified when it comes to shophouse architecture.
