What is a Boutique Home?

Your furnished studio apartment within a heritage shophouse in convenient central locations.

We know apartment hunting can be stressful for you, with dreary, cookie-cutter condo 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 studio 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.

What is a condo apartment?

A condominium, often shortened to condo in Singapore, is a property type that is similar to an apartment but is individually sellable and therefore is regarded as independently owned real estate. The residential condo building is divided into several residential units that are each separately owned, and includes shared common areas that are jointly owned and maintained.

Who are condo apartments for?

Condo apartments are the perfect rental option for singles, whilst Figment’s furnished condo apartments are large enough to accommodate couples and co-sharing friends.

How many can live in a condominium apartment?

Our shophouse condo rentals can comfortably accommodate up to two people. You might find that sharing a condo with your significant other would be much easier than sharing one with a close friend. That said, Figment provides spacious shared common areas for you to let loose beyond the confines of your condo.

What is the difference between an apartment and a condo?

In sum, condominiums are owned properties, while apartments are rented from an owner. Condo units within a residential building are sold to individual owners. These owners end up collectively owning the common areas throughout the condo complex. There is a building management committee which becomes the responsibility of the homeowners’ association with the individual maintenance of each unit's interior being paid for by the owner of that unit. In comparison, all apartments in a residential building are actually owned by a single owner or landlord. Each individual apartment is then rented out tenants or residents, who will have to pay rent to the landlord who handles the maintenance of the building and, by extension, each individual apartment unit.

Where can I find the cheapest condo apartments for rent?

Figment provides plenty of affordable condo rentals starting from $1,500 monthly with no agent fee. However, if you are looking for the cheapest condo apartments for rent under $1,500 in Singapore, here are some good places to start.
Rental Property Platforms such as Carousell, 99.co and PropertyGuru
FacebookGroups
Usually, the quality and number of amenities and options should improve as you move further East. Make sure to do some price research on the area in question on URA’s website so you don’t get ripped off. You might also want to use a property agent to help with your search.

Can I rent a condo apartment 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 condo apartment rentals with flexible lease terms and a 1-month notice period.
