Book Boutique Hotel Alternatives In Singapore Heritage Shophouses

Flexible, boutique rentals with an instant community in central locations

Get Started
What is a Boutique Home?

Your designer boutique hotel alternative within a heritage shophouse in convenient central locations.

We know booking a suitable room can be stressful for you, with unreliable, low-quality boutique hotel sg options and a whole lot of hassle.

Inspired by local art and culture, Figment handpicks heritage shophouses in central locations.

We reimagine them as comfortable, well-appointed rooms and apartments for your fuss-free rental.

We invite you to join our community of creatives and contribute in revitalising our local neighbourhoods.

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.

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 home?

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.
