The Chamber is the most historically significant space in The Arts House, in fact, it is the heart of the House. Formerly the Parliamentary Chamber where members of the Singapore Parliament gathered, the Chamber has special furniture shipped in from London, and the upholstery you see now is the original that was in place since 1954.
To facilitate understanding by all members who may speak in English, Mandarin, Malay or Tamil, simultaneous interpretation was provided, and the device attached by the side of the seats allowed members to listen to the proceedings in any of the four languages. The round plates on the back of the seats used to be the speakers. The castle-like design on them is part of the Colonial crest used when Singapore was a British Colony. The Chamber is now popularly used for recitals, thought-leadership conferences and lifestyle shows.
