Nestled along Race Course Road, Figment’s Derby House offers a unique living experience that pays homage to the neighbourhood’s vibrant history. The site of Singapore’s first Turf Club in 1942, the area was once home to the island’s first horse racing tracks.
This inspired the character of Derby House, where curated antiques and objects are displayed throughout the studios, creating a playful and nostalgic ambiance. Each studio is adorned with one-of-a-kind artworks, upcycled from refurbished wooden jalousie windows, crates, and tires, giving it a distinct barnhouse feel.
