"I've found Figment's Studio Apartments to be great for flexible and fuss-free living. Shophouses being more spacious than condos of the same price was an added bonus."

All Figment Members receive complimentary, exclusive access to the Figment Club House and a standing invite to curated local cultural events such as art fairs and exhibitions.
You get a furnished studio 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.
The application process is easy and can all be completed online, or in-person if you’re local. First you’ll fill out the application form on our site by clicking the orange ‘Find My Home’ button. We’ll give you a call within the next business day for us to get to know you better. If you’re local to the area, you can go for an in-person tour, or if you’re remote, we can tour with you virtually. At that time, you can reserve the space by e-signing your lease and transferring the security deposit.
A studio apartment is defined as a small, self-contained apartment of 500ft2 or less. It usually houses everything you need in a single room with an en-suite bathroom.
Studio apartments are the perfect rental option for singles, whilst Figment’s furnished studio apartments are large enough to accommodate couples and co-sharing friends.
Our shophouse studio apartment rentals can comfortably accommodate up to two people. You might find that sharing a studio 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 studio.
Whole unit studio rooms are often prized for their affordable rentals, privacy and proximity to public transport due to their central locations. There’s also much less cleaning to do with less junk lying around!
The average size of a studio apartment in Singapore is 300ft2.

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.
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 studio apartment rentals with flexible lease terms and a 1-month notice period.
