Charles K. K. Chua is a native Malaccan and sixth-generation Peranakan Baba, whose love for his culture dates back to his childhood, as a member of the original family who built and dwelled in this house. As the caretaker of his family's home and its heritage, he is responsible for maintaining and preserving the physical environment, as well as keeping its traditions alive.

A highly respected and well-known retired architect, Charles is also gifted with artistic ability and a great eye for detail. He himself repairs, recreates, and re-interprets the pieces under his care, preserving the beauty and spirit of the family's collection, sometimes adapting and updating them as beautiful objets d'art.

Some of the most unique pieces seen at the Malacca Heritage Centre were created by Charles himself.
