George Town Heritage Hotel @ Muntri Mews

52 Muntri Street Georgetown George Town Penang Malaysia

Muntri Mews was the second project undertaken by Chris Ong back in 2009. It was created from what was a former communal parking for horse carriages.

Under Ong’s skilful touch, the collection of Edwardian era buildings, that were in various stages of disrepair at that time, were transformed into contemporary accommodation, complete with original wooden windows, doors and roof trusses.

The Grade II heritage building was originally the mews meant for the row of grand terrace houses built along the street during an era of affluence. The rooms upstairs were originally built as quarters for drivers and syce at that time. The long verandah that connected the rooms have remained, lending a feel of communal living amongst the workers during that period. This led to a common set of bathroom and kitchen that serviced the people that lived there.

Keeping to the utilitarian lines of the building, Ong kept the interiors as original as possible with a touch of 20th century feel to it. Materials such as marble flooring and wood salvaged from other houses, schools and even a hospital were put together to create a simple and yet comfortable interior that harks back to the era.
