Sophia Hills Site Plan / Facilities
Sophia Hills Club House (former Olsen Building of Methodist Girl’s School)
The oldest of the three buildings is the Olsen Buiding of Methodist Girl’s School, built in 1928. Originally called Cambridge Building, it housed six classrooms catered for students taking the Cambridge exams.
Characteristic architectural elements to look out for include the building’s French windows, timber shutters, lattice lights and louvered terracotta parapet vents.
Sophia Hills Kindergarten (former Nan Hwa Girls’ School)
Nan Hwa Girls’ School was completed in 1941. As a modern Chinese school, the three storey building displayed aesthetic influences from Art Deco. It was finished in textured cement render, with two symmetrical pitched-roof wings for classrooms, and a projecting portico in the centre.
Notable architectural features include the precast wall vents and toplight lattice used in various combinations with window, as well as the sleek cantilevered horizontal sunshading fins that go around the perimeter of the building on the 2nd and 3rd level.
Sophia Hills Restaurant (former Trinity Theological College Chapel)
Trinity Theological College Chapel was completed in 1969 and had been an exemplar of mature tropical church design. The chapel boasts a modern tropical design complete with religious symbolism in its form, layout and ornamentation.
The chapel’s stained glass are not made of traditional stained glass with lead beadings, but plexiglass panels. This was a progressive and experimental material choice at the time, unfortunately the material does not age well and the feature has to be replicated in more permanent materials.
