What do you think about 15 Coolest Co-Working Spaces in Singapore?

The best part about being a freelancer or a consultant (besides the flexi-hours, ofcourse) is the fact that you can choose your own office. No more drab cubicles or working from your living room sofa.

Co-working places are the new rage in town and these chic spaces offer a professional and comfortable environment to get your work done. In fact, with meteoric real estate rentals in the city, many start-ups choose to work out of these spaces as well. You can now boast of an office which rivals those of Google and Facebook (though these could do with Google’s famed multi-cuisine spread). Here is our pick of the best co-working spaces in Singapore:

WorkCentral

A 1-minute walk from Dhobi Ghaut station, WorkCentral wins points in the connectivity index. Airy and bright, the room is done up in white and grey hues with long tables and comfortable office chairs. There is a well-stocked pantry called The Brew House to cater to your hunger pangs and a sofa-area labelled The Reading Room for a casual meeting or just to unwind. Hot desks, dedicated desks and private offices are available and the space is open 24/7 (9am-6pm for hot desk users). Prices start at $50 per day.

The Hub

One of the largest co-working spaces in Singapore, The Hub is also one of the most popular. Thus, the Princep branch rarely has availability. The second outlet at Cuppage Road is a more likely bet if you’re interested. Popular for a reason, The Hub offers free Ben and Jerry Ice Cream and free beer on Fridays, much like Google’s TGIF concept. Packages are offered for hot desks and dedicated desks which include a mailing address for a minimum of 80 hours of usage.

The Great Room

With plush brown leather sofas and hardwood floors, The Great Room resembles a board room more than a co-working space. Individual hot desks share a large stately room with floor-to-ceiling windows. Start-ups may prefer the enclosed hot offices or dedicated offices furnished with storage. The refreshment area is supplied free coffee by Papa Palheta and is great for a break. The Great Room has a second branch in Centennial Tower which boasts of similar views and décor. Day passes are offered at $70 and monthly membership at $750.

The Co.

Clean minimalistic décor and affordable hot desks make The Co. another prime choice. This eight-storey building is trendy with a glossy reception and an open-concept floor on the third level. With prices starting at $45 per day, it is popular with local freelancers.

District6

Another minimalistic space, District6 is more industrial chic with long shared tables and straight-back white chairs. It is located conveniently in City Hall and is open 24/7. Private phone booths and Kyoto-speciality coffee are some of the perks offered to members. If you’re planning an event, they also have a space on offer than fits in 100 pax comfortably.

JustCo

Designed more like a café than an office, JustCo is warm and inviting with wooden hues, high ceilings and a ping pong table thrown in for good measure. Spread over four floors of the Parakou building, this collaborative space has retro graffiti on walls and offers desks for $50 per day. Monthly membership will put you back by $800 for a studio. JustCo also operated three other outlets, all in the CBD area.

MOX

Another one that walks the industrial chic line with aplomb, MOX at Katong Point could very well be a café that we would love to hang in. Perfect for those with a creative bent of mind, it offers novel amenities like a 3-D printer, carpentry desk, a photography studio complete with lighting equipment and work stations with the latest design software. There is even a retail space up-front where you can display pieces that you wish to put up for sale. It’s delightfully affordable with a day pass at $30 and a monthly office for $500.

ClubCo

Club street may transform into the party-capital at night but by day, it is home to ClubCo, a contemporary working space that pulls in people from across the island. The one-week free trial is a great way to try out the space and see if it works for you. The membership deals have freebies thrown in like free hourly usage of meeting pods, etc.

MVR Studio

Photographers will love this studio space equipped with lighting, equipment and other technical support they may require. MVR Studio has high ceilings and an industrial-loft feel. The studio is offered on affordable rentals that start at $35 per hour (for a minimum of 2) and hot desks go for $45 per day. If you require support, they also offer services of a junior photo assistant.   

Cliftons

Not your regular co-working place, Cliftons offers training, conference and meeting venues on demand. High definition video conferencing and expert onsite tech support ensure that your event goes off without a hitch. Perfect for image consultants or corporate trainers. Cliftons is a two-minute walk from both Raffles Place and Tanjong Pagar MRT stations. 

Trehaus Cowork

This one is a relief for working parents, Trehaus is the only co-working place in Singapore that also offers child-minding services. New parents can now work in peace while their tots are taken care of by Kids Atelier, which not only supervises children but also has a schedule of programmes and activities designed to develop and nurture them. Packages for hot desks or dedicated desks start with a minimum guarantee of 10 days and child-minding services are charged hourly.     

Collision 8

With sharp sleep interiors, Collision 8 is geared towards the needs of innovators and entrepreneurs. Lovely views of the Marina Bay Sands skyline spark new thoughts and ideas as you collaborate and discuss future strategies with co-innovators at the lounge or the library. A wall of inspiration adds character to the place and seating options include hot desks, dedicated desks and private offices.  

the Hive

Singapore’s shophouses are not just a photographer’s delight, they are functional spaces as well. the Hive is located within three such shophouses on Hong Kong Street. For as little as $20, you can have access to their desks, lounge area as well as the lovely rooftop café. Another outlet has just sprung up at Kallang Junction to take care of the East’s co-working needs. 

LEVEL3

Perfect for start-ups and small businesses, LEVEL3 is a large 22,000 sq.ft. space with desks, meeting rooms, phone booths and event spaces. Run by a company which is a joint venture between Unilever Foundry and Padang & Co., membership at LEVEL3 also gives you access to certain events at the Unilever HQ next door. 10-day memberships start at $275 and premium packages include lockers, support to design a company logo and other perks.

Spacemob

With two branches at Orchard Road and Science Park, Spacemob has the island’s co-working needs covered. Large and spread out, the furniture and furnishings are bright and colourful with splashes of yellow, blue, green and red. Seating options include individual desks as well as meeting rooms and an event space that can fit 60 pax. Coffee and snacks are served all day (from their inhouse barista) so you can just concentrate on your work and offers like Takeaway Thursday promise to spice up your work week. $50 can get you a beginner’s membership. Free health insurance is included for teams and members also enjoy privileges like corporate hotel rates, etc.

Awesome List! But do check out WOTSO WorkSpace, its may not be the coolest but its definitely the cheapest in town at SGD300 per month, located beside Raffles Place MRT, 24/7 unlimited usage with wifi and NO contract period, its a steal. Also. Just Quote [email protected] and get a 50 dollar off the rent the first month. Oh did i mention complementary roof usage and free beers on Friday. ;-)

What about we work? They’re the biggest in the world

We Work is a good suggestion as they do have 5 outlets in Singapore. But we have had no suggestion of We Work on our Network until now.Can you register as a member please and we will consider including We Work into this list. Also you rated We Work a 6/8. Why is it so low? are they not to the standard of other co-working places in Singapore. It would be great to know a bit more before we proceed to support We Work in the Singapore Expat Community
