What’s included in the rental rate?

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’, Figment Club 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 Figment Club 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.

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.

How do I book a stay?

Enquire with us by clicking the orange button on the top right. You would already need to know your budget and expected move-in date. We’ll give you a call within the next business day for us to get to know you better, followed by a viewing if you wish. You’ll be able to book on the spot if you like what you see.

How soon can I get a response to my inquiry?

We will get back to you within the next business day with the available studios on our end.

What is a black and white house in Singapore?

Singapore's black and white houses are typically colonial bungalows that were built between the late 19th century up until the pre-war era. The name came from the dark, almost-black timber beams and white-washed walls that were used in their construction. Many such homes are now managed as SLA properties for rent. To celebrate that heritage today, many other shophouses re-create that B&W look and feel.

Where are the black and white houses in Singapore?

Here are some Black and white enclaves worth knowing (many managed as SLA houses): Dempsey Road. Rochester Park. Portsdown Road. Gillman Barracks. Adam Park. Sembawang Park. Seletar Aerospace Park. And many more! Part of the fun is exploring these tropical neighborhoods replete with colonial properties.

Are there other types of conservation houses in Singapore?

In additional to colonial Black and White bungalows, shophouses—a heritage source of delightful nostalgia—are a prevalent building typology in Singapore's architectural vernacular. They are normally narrow terraced houses built in the Southern Chinese style, with a sheltered 'five foot way' at the front of the house.

Is it better to rent or buy a house in Singapore?

Buying a house involves a large financial commitment that many people end up working their entire lives to pay off. Renting a home with Figment as the direct owner requires a much smaller financial outlay, especially for the short-term as you will not have to cough up the cash on a huge downpayment, and you will not be in mortgage debt for the rest of your life!

Can I rent a black and white house in Singapore as a foreigner?

According to the Council for Estate Agencies, to rent property in Singapore, you need to be a Singapore citizen or permanent resident. Non-citizens may rent if they hold an employment or work permit like an S-pass, a student pass, dependent pass or long term social visit pass. That said, even with foreigners holding legal residence, the problem is that most Singapore landlords may not be too pleased with a month-to-month lease agreement and would typically require at least a 1 or 2 year contract. Figment provides a much-needed. flexible alternative for B&W rentals with flexible lease terms and a 1-month notice period.
