Bare Shell Offices for Rent in Singapore

Bare shell offices are the most common type of workspace available in Singapore. Use this page as a resource for finding the best bare shell offices in the city for your business, catering to different size and location requirements.
Quick Guide to Bare Shell Offices

What is a bare shell office?

As the name implies, a bare shell office comes completely bare, without any furnishings or fit-outs. The space normally comes as just an empty box, giving tenants the freedom to customise their own design and layout from scratch.

Most "traditional" long-term offices come bare shell, or with minor fit-outs including lighting and electricity cables. These office spaces normally require a long term lease commitment of 3 years or more. When signing a lease, it is the tenant's responsibility to coordinate fit-outs and design work. Once the lease is terminated, tenants must reinstate the office unit back to its original condition, unless stated otherwise by the landlord.

Is a bare shell office right for my business?

Bare shell offices are perfect for businesses who are looking to stick around for the long haul. Established corporates and MNCs, in particular, appreciate the freedom they get to customise their office branding and design. These companies normally have a stable headcount that is likely to change significantly over time. A fully customized office design can speak volumes about the status and legacy of a brand.

Nonetheless, fit-outs do require more significant overhead costs and time. Businesses who are looking to save on costs and move in immediately may want to consider a fitted office, coworking space or serviced office instead. Tenants of a bare shell office also need to be prepared to shoulder office management and utility costs.

What to look for when leasing a bare shell office?

When scouting for a bare shell office, it's important to take into account the layout of the space and how much floor area you have to work with. Is the space a corner unit? Are there columns or partitions that segment the space? It's a good idea to have an idea of your preferred office design and layout prior to your search.

Location would be your next top priority. Consider the building that an office unit is located: is it a Grade A building? Is it a strata-titled building that involves different landlords? What amenities are accessible within the building itself? Grade A developments like Capital Tower or Asia Square, for example, integrate bare office units with F&B, hotel and retail options in the same complex. Also, be sure to identify key amenities and transport hubs in the neighbourhood.

How much does it cost to rent fitted offices in Singapore?

As with all types of workspace in Singapore, the cost of a fitted office can vary greatly depending on a number of key factors, including location, office size, and grade of the building. Bare office units in the central business district, for example, are likely to be more costly than offices in fringe areas. Due to the lack of furnishings, bare office units are typically marketed at a lower rental price than fitted offices per month.
