Co-working Spaces: Cowork@SG, Collective Works and The Nomad Offices

The start-up scene is filled with fresh-faced talents - hip and raring to go with boundless creativity. It helps to work out of an environment that matches the vibe. Of course, office space can be costly. 

So, co-working spaces have risen as an inexpensive and flexible option. These are desks or private offices within a larger space that are rented out to individuals and businesses. Leases can be as short as on a per-month basis. Amenities and secretarial services are often included as well so you don't have to bother with these administrative considerations and costs.

 

Here are some of co-working spaces in Singapore you can check out.

Cowork@SG has a quirky, no-frills environment in an intimate space. The statement blue walls add a splash of colour and personality to the simple and clean décor.

Collective Works

 

Price:

S$240-2000 per person

You can also choose plans based on the number of hours you wish to work at the office (40, 80 or 120 hours).

 

Spaces Available:

Regular Desk

Large Desk

Private Office

 

The Vibe:

Collective Works markets itself as a premium co-working environment. The space is largely monochrome with yellow decorative accents. Full-length windows allow natural light to flood the rooms and glass doors keep the offices open and bright. Collective Works also ensures that competitors do not share the same space.

 

Accessibility:

The two Collective Works offices in Singapore - a Cecil Street and a Capital Tower office - are a stone’s throw away from each other. They are both part of a larger office building. So, ample parking space is available. Both are also a mere two-minute walk from Telok Ayer MRT and Tanjong Pagar MRT respectively.

 

Amenities:

Collective Works grants everyone access to all the amenities no matter which plan you choose. The downside, however, is that their pantry isn’t free though it’s cheap. Drinks go at $1 each.

The Nomad Offices

The Nomad Offices now operates under Regus, a multinational corporation that provides co-working spaces for businesses.

 

Price:

S$100 per month

 

Spaces Available:

Co-working Space

Serviced Offices

The Vibe:

The largely dark brown interior has a sleek, polished finish while the bright red furniture breaks the monotony. The office also features glass doors and windows that allow natural light in.

 

Accessibility:

The Nomad Offices has two locations in Singapore, both conveniently situated in the heart of the Central Business District (CBD). The Suntec City office is a four-minute walk from Promenade MRT while the Raffles Place office is an even shorter two-minute walk from Raffles Place MRT. This makes driving optional, which isn’t a bad thing considering how expensive it is to park in town.

 

Amenities:

A unique service that The Nomad Offices provides is professional receptionists who answer calls in your company’s name. They also receive guests and direct them to your meeting room.
