ETYMOLOGY

  • There are many different types of terrace houses, including single-storey, one-and-a-half-storey, double-storey, and multi-storey houses. These are built by property developers or private individuals.
  • Most terrace houses in Singapore and Malaysia typically house only one family, and have no common facilities.
  • Singapore also has government-built terrace houses. These early terrace flats came into existence in the 1950s. The double-storey terrace houses were constructed by the Singapore Improvement Trust, and subsequently managed by the Housing & Development Board from the 1960s. The upper floor of these houses consists of a bedroom, while the lower floor comprises a living room, kitchen, bathroom and toilet. These terrace houses are located along Stirling Road in Singapore’s first satellite estate, Queenstown, and are built in the vicinity of three 7-storey flats, Blocks 45, 48 and 49.
