By now you would’ve known Hmlet for galvanising the co-living concept in Singapore.

The Singapore start-up has, after all, listings that cater to every living solution you could possibly think of. No stranger to converting heritage buildings into contemporary accommodation (read all about Hmlet Cantonment here), the co-living startup has now expanded its scope — this time, however, with conservation shophouses. 

Catered to local and expat families living in Singapore, this new private housing solution — called Hmlet Nest — will comprise eight historical shophouses on Hamilton Road being fully refurbished to offer 68 rooms. These rooms will be a mix of two-bedroom private units, as well as three- or four-bedroom co-living units depending on your needs.

Families seeking more space and privacy will find the former to be a better solution with prices starting at an affordable S$3,400, while singles or couples who enjoy socialising and the conviviality of communal living will enjoy  the latter, which sees prices starting from S$1,350.

To make transitioning into the spaces easier, the units can be had either furnished or unfurnished, with the latter being cheaper for obvious reasons. If you’re not apt at home decor though, you can always choose to have Hmlet’s interior design team hook you up with their signature minimalist-chic furniture, all of which will convert your space into a tranquil haven with plenty of neutral and wood finishings. 

For ultimate convenience, there’s even an app that’ll allow residents to chat with the member experience team, request services like cleaning and laundry-on-demand, and even pay your rent, so they won’t have to worry about the nitty gritties.

Hmlet Nest will also be pet-friendly, and will offer generous communal areas like a 5,000 square-foot rooftop that will be a meeting point for the community for activities — especially useful if you’re new to the neighbourhood and want to meet new people.
