Freemasons participate in a re-dedication ceremony to mark the completion of renovation works for the Freemasons' Hall at Coleman Street. The 133-year-old heritage building is the headquaters of the Freemasons in the district. The facelift is the most major one since World War 2 and costs $7.5 million, raised by donations from the 500 Freemasons here in Singapore. Renovation work, which started in 2009, was done for the main building and a new modern glass annex has been added. --ST PHOTO: NURIA LING

The Freemasons are a notoriously secretive group, but in a sign that they are slowly opening up, the Singapore headquarters opened its doors to the media earlier this week for a tour of their newly revamped headquarters at Coleman Street.

The 133-year-old heritage building underwent a $7.5 million refurbishment that took four years. New electrical wiring has been installed, along with a proper lighting system for the exterior facade.

With more than 500 members using the premises, a new annex with three storeys and a basement was created at the back for more space. It houses a masonic library, a third smaller masonic temple and a museum.

The headquarters also has a new restaurant on the first floor which will be open to the general public in March.
