The shophouse evolved from the late 18th century during the colonial era. A shophouse is a vernacular architectural building type that is commonly seen in areas such as urban Southeast Asia. Shophouses are mostly two or three stories high, with a shop on the ground floor for mercantile activity and a residence above the shop.

Traditional shophouses facade ornamentation draws inspiration from the Malay, Chinese and European traditions. Other traditions include the use of Peranakan pastel-colored glazed tiles, often with floral or geometric motifs.

The degree of a shophouse's ornamentation depends on the prosperity of its owner and the surrounding area; shophouse facades in cities and (former) boomtowns are generally more elaborate than rural shophouses, which tend to be more Spartan in design.
