Golden Echoes - Reviving Rumah Tangsi's Timeless Legacy

Rumah Tangsi, nestled at Lot 10 on Jalan Tangsi in Kuala Lumpur, stands as a heritage building steeped in history. Once the residence of Loke Chow Kit, a prominent entrepreneurial figure in early 20th-century Kuala Lumpur, this mansion boasts a bright yellow exterior and embodies European architectural styles. Its name, "Rumah Tangsi," reflects its location on Jalan Tangsi, previously known as Barrack Road, hinting at its past connection to police barracks. Over time, it underwent various transformations, serving as a pioneering modern hotel and later becoming the esteemed PAM Centre. Today, under DBKL's ownership, Rumah Tangsi stands as a thriving community hub and heritage event space, ideal for hosting a diverse range of events. We spoke with the director of Rumah Tangsi, Ar Ridha Razak, and senior architect of DBKL, Ar Noor Fazlina Rosley, about its history, restoration and conservation efforts, as well as its current use as one of KL's premier event spaces.
