No. 8 Heeren Street

Heeren Logo (from scan)

8 Heeren Street is a fine example of a two-storey building built in the mid-late 1700s. It is typical of early shophouses and modest residential structures built in Malacca between the mid 1600s and late 1800s.

Early shophouses commonly served as shop, residence, stable and animal yard all at the same time.

As part of Badan Warisan Malaysia’s Model Conservation Project, 8 Heeren Street served as a practical example of conservation of its building type, the early shophouse and at the same time demonstrates a successful adaptation of new uses.
