Hmlet opens in Tiong Bahru and Emerald Hill, with a collection of heritage homes available for booking
Old and new
With co-living on the rise in Singapore, it's apparent that more folks are embracing the communal lifestyle. Anything that eschews commitment does sound marginally more appealing, even when making the big leap of moving into your own space. Asia's leading property and lifestyle company, Hmlet fits the bill — to a tee — since its launch in Singapore. Its fleet of modern, minimalist homes strategically planted at convenient hotspots in our city — from Bukit Timah to Shenton Way.
Now, it has launched two new addresses at Tiong Bahru and Emerald Hill. Both enclaves own an illustrious history and heritage, with a new-old charm that locals and foreigners would have already been acquainted with by now. And while our current times might dissuade any house-hunting, virtual tours are now available at Hmlet.
No two units are the same. Tiong Bahru's collection of apartments houses original elements like exposed brick walls, built-in dining benches, and textured glass doors. A homage to the building's provenance. There are units in Yong Siak, Moh Guan Terrace, Chay Yan, and more. In a neighbourhood steeped in a revered style of Art Deco — where curving forms and long horizontal lines are prevalent wherever you stroll to — the Hmlet homes here mirror that, while filling the walls with hexagonal coasters from SCENE SHANG as well as commissioned artworks featuring the past and present Tiong Bahru.
Over at Emerald Hill, you'll find Hmlet's MO of contemporary fixtures blended with peranakan influences. In this residence, two houses are merged, letting in generous parameters as well as a grand staircase to be the centrepiece of the entire home. Add to that, a long antique table to encourage new conversations and friendships over shared meals. 12 bedrooms are available for booking here, where you'll be granted access to a courtyard and living lounges. Traditional tiles are preserved in this property, as you'll find a distinct oak beige and dark wood adorning the entire property. Not to mention, batik fabric prints and artworks that pay tribute to the enclave's culture and heritage. This might just be the coolest hideout, in the urban nexus that is Orchard Road.
