門有相似 Similar Doors

April 24, 2012

昨日出門,到歐南園(Outram Park)附近的雜誌社,發現那裡比牛車水更安靜,小街更有情調,還有一些同鄉會啥的,很有意思。若不是程先生趕著回家複習考試,我一定慢慢逛一下。所以,要美圖,只能等下次拍了。

原來除了騎樓,南洋的門,也和廣州的門有相似之處。都有“腳門”,據查,脚门的高度比常人的头顶稍高小门既可以分隔屋内外,又可以防止户外的干扰,可通风、采光,灵活而富艺术,而且很适合南方的气候。我想原來新加坡也是出於這個考慮而沿用這個腳門吧。不過現在都是空調了,腳門只是裝飾用咯。

對比之下,廣州西關的腳門雕花精緻得多,只是……怎么南洋的老建築還那麼光鮮,還是設計工作室,廣州的老建築變成危房,要拆遷?唉!

Both doors have a “foot door”, which is a little bit taller than a man to keep privacy and sufficient light and ventilation.

The new door in Singapore must be equipped with an electronic lock while the old door in Guangzhou still keeps the ancient “bar door” to lock.
