Tay Suan Chiang reports on the latest trend of co-living, highlighting how Figment and Cooliv are shaking things up by putting Singapore’s architectural heritage at the forefront of their businesses.
…rather than let a select few enjoy that experience (you need to have deep pockets or inherit one), Figment makes shophouse living more accessible. Instead of just leasing out rooms in a shophouse, Mr Low collaborated with six design firms across different disciplines to fit out one shophouse each.
The article features Figment’s flagship CASE STUDY HOMES, where different designers are allocated one conservation unit each. CANVAS HOUSE and SHANG HOUSE receive the spotlight, with Colin Seah explaining the concept behind the all-white house on Blair Road and Jess speaking about the special custom-made furniture for the pre-war terrace along Pegu Road.
