Green walls and textured surfaces breathe new life into an abandoned row of shop offices

Located near the Johor Straits across from Singapore, the Series of Barns comprises eight three-story structures built on the grid facing the water.

Currently half of the gabled structures are occupied. The unused four structures are kept as spares for future use with their front facades covered in green creepers grown on tensioned wires.
