What is a Boutique Home™?

Your artfully furnished room or apartment within a heritage shophouse in the trendiest neighbourhoods.

We know looking for a new place to live can have you feeling lost, with cookie-cutter condo options and a whole lot of hassle.

Inspired by local art and architecture, Figment curates heritage shophouses in convenient, central locations. We design them as well-appointed rooms and apartments for your fuss-free rental.

Our commitment to creative placemaking means we draw on arts and culture to reimagine our homes as the heart of our local communities.

At Figment, home is where the art is.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s included in the rental rate?

You get a furnished room or apartment that’s move-in ready. WiFi, utilities, and weekly cleaning of the common areas are all included. We’ll also provide one free set of bedding and towels, basic household essentials and a welcome gift bag. Your rent includes use of shared laundry, kitchen facilities, living and dining areas. New members also enjoy free access to our members-only ‘living-room-away-from-home’, Embassy House.

What type of social life can I expect?

We hope you’ll get to know your fellow housemates as soon as you move in. The Embassy House is a members-only ‘homespace’ for you to meet the Figment community. You’re also invited to our curated events. Think private dining with local chefs or book-binding classes hosted by independent creatives. Through these events, we hope you’ll get to know more Figment members from other homes.

Tell me more about the Figment member community!

You will be joining a creative community of open-minded, well-travelled professionals. Creative souls from diverse backgrounds in tech, finance, design, and other knowledge industries. Although most members are in their thirties, many are in their sixties and seventies! Rather than our age though, what matters is our shared appreciation of art and culture. It helps to bring a sense of adventure going off the beaten track of cookie-cutter condo living.

Wait a minute, isn’t this just coliving with others?  

Not so much, this is Figment’s vision of shared housing for grown-ups. We are not slicing and dicing apartments into cages just to stuff two hundred people into a building. With Figment you always have room to breathe. Socialise as much as you like, or choose to retire to your private studio within a huge 3000ft² shophouse.

Can I work in the common area?

Most definitely. We think you’d figure out a nice arrangement with your housemates if they would also like to work there.

Does Figment offer any health and fitness amenities?

We provide you with 11 free monthly credits for ClassPass that lets you access top-rated gyms, fitness studios, and other amenities within your neighbourhood. Step out of your shophouse and get to know your vibrant historical neighbourhood while supporting your local gyms and fitness studios!

What is the application process like?

The application process is easy and can all be completed online, or in-person if you’re local. First you’ll fill out the application form on our site by clicking the orange ‘Find My Home’ button. We’ll give you a call within the next business day for us to get to know you better. If you’re local to the area, you can go for an in-person tour, or if you’re remote, we can tour with you virtually. At that time, you can reserve the space by e-signing your lease and transferring the security deposit.
