Did you know you could live in a heritage shophouse? Figment’s Art Houses are artfully designed shophouses, a type of local heritage building and emblem of Singaporean identity. Be one of the few to live in the 857 shophouses that remain today, each showcasing a vernacular architectural style depending on when it was built.
Modelled after the clan associations of old, the Figment Club House welcomes global citizens like you with open doors.
Work out of Figment’s ‘living-room-away-from-home’, plug into a community of like-minded members, and make friends with local creatives over takeout and drinks – all on the house.
Linghao Architects built the Club House as a ‘machine for living’ from reclaimed timber, poured concrete, bespoke terazzo and overgrown tropical hanging plants.
"I've found Figment's Shophouses to be great for flexible and fuss-free living. Shophouses being more spacious than condos of the same price was an added bonus."
Shruti, Tech Entrepreneur

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’, Figment Club House.
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.
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.
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.
Most definitely. We think you'd figure out a nice arrangement with your housemates if they would also like to work there.
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.
Buying a shophouse 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!
It depends on the city and state of the economy. In Singapore, ever-increasing home prices and higher mortgage rates have made it less expensive to rent a shophouse than buy and own one. It is highly likely that one can outperform building home equity if he/she chooses to rent a house by owner and reinvests his/her savings in the market.
Wary of searching for a shophouse with a property agent and having to pay a month's rent in commissions? With Figment, you can rent a shophouse in Singapore with us directly as an owner without an agent and no agent fee whatsoever. Simply browse our shophouses on offer and send in an inquiry in the form below.
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 shophouse rentals with flexible lease terms and a 1-month notice period.
