Abstract: Club Street, is a place of unique and timeless qualities: for one, its inimitable boutiques, eateries and lounges are patronised by a clientele that is reminiscent of Chinese immigrants who used to meet in clan associations situated along the same street for leisure. Nonetheless, the distinctive yet oft-inconspicuous sights, sounds and other sensory nuances emblematic of Club Street may run the risk of a silent extinction, given that it lacks a robust, core identity or threshold to safeguard against the invasion of antagonistic cultural influences. To remedy this problem in sustainable and equitable manner, the proposed thesis will look into the development of mixed facilities and value-added spaces that will [1] drive a grassroots awakening of the nascent bohemianism that is embodied by Club Street and [2] promote an enterprising spirit of creativity and individualism amongst visitors, in the hopes of [3] reconstituting and strengthening its site identity and uniqueness for posterity’s sake.
