Co-working spaces are aplenty in this day and age, with one popping up in every corner of the city. But how familiar are we with co-living spaces? Enter Hmlet, the pioneer of co-living spaces in Singapore. Since its inception in 2016, Hmlet has been synonymous with stunning apartments in more than 75 locations across Singapore, Hong Kong, Sydney and a number of other cities.
Its latest property, Hmlet Cantonment, is its largest and most flexible co-living facility to date. The new property on 150 Cantonment Road takes over a heritage site from the 1950s, which was once home to Keppel Primary School before it was converted to the headquarters of Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau.
The best part about co-living is that it's fully-equipped, so you don't need to pay for hefty gym memberships or deal with a crazy landlord. The building itself has been designed to incorporate co-living spaces, such as communal kitchens, a wellness studio, outdoor plunge pool and relaxation area, as well as an all-day, in-house cafe to encourage interaction among residents. Each of its 150 rooms is equipped with housekeeping and laundry services. There’ll be regular branded partner pop-up events, as well as community activities for members, including games night, movie screenings, in-house yoga and meditation classes.
While it is stunningly designed and equipped with modern amenities, the building also retains its retro elements to keep its heritage, such as the original staircase with terrazzo handrails and feature walls. Additionally, a portion of its furniture is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified, in line with Hmlet’s commitment to sustainable living.
Perhaps the best part about Hmlet Cantonment is its proximity to Singapore's historic Duxton Hill and Chinatown enclaves – as well as the area's restaurants, cafes, bars, and cultural attractions. You'll never be stuck at home with limited options on Deliveroo again. Public transportation is also just a five-minute walk away.
