Red house is truly a historical building filled with arts and crafts. My girls loved this place. One of the shop showcase many types of musical box which was truly enchanting. Every corner of this place shows different art from different times. Do pay a visit if you are nearby.
Interesting relic in the middle of a hype district. The vocabulary of architectural expressions are well captured and highlighted in the hexagon centre. The exterior facade is well conserved and diametrically opposed the arts and craft industrial style interiors. Perhaps it would have been better if the facade actually opens up and engages with the perimeter forecourt. The shared all gender toilet may be jarring to some.
