Quick Guide to Shophouse Offices

What are shophouse offices?

Known for their traditional facade and terraced layout, shophouses are unique, heritage buildings in Singapore (and a few other cities in Southeast Asia). Today, many of them have been preserved or restored as viable office space locations. As with other office spaces, shophouse units can come bare-shell or fitted. Some coworking spaces are also housed in shophouses, providing flexible workspace options.

Is a shophouse office right for my business?

Shophouse offices are great for businesses who want something different from the typical corporate setup. Many businesses are attracted to shophouses due to their unique look-and-feel that offers a touch of Singapore's heritage. Shophouses are normally located in clusters, with accessible locations in central neighbourhoods like Telok Ayer and Bugis, and provide great natural lighting with a bright, airy environment.

Due to their unconventional design and exterior, shophouse units tend to be ideal for startups, boutique firms, and companies in creative sectors like media and advertising. On the other hand, businesses targeting a corporate profile of clients are more likely to prefer an office space in a traditional building.

What to look for when leasing a shophouse office?

Location is a big factor to consider when looking at shophouses! Most shophouses rarely exist as standalone buildings, and are normally located in clusters of terraced units with little to no separation. Neighbouring shophouses to your office can be home to restaurants, cafes, shops, boutique hotels, and fitness studios, so it's important to survey the area to see which amenites you value most. Many shophouse clusters are located in or around the central business district, covering prime neighbourhoods like Tanjong Pagar, Telok Ayer, City Hall and Bugis. In these areas, it's possible to find shophouse spaces in close proximity to MRT stations and bus stops.

Another factor to consider is the level of fit-out required. Keep in mind that shophouses are older than most Grade A office buildings, and may require more extensive fit-outs. One question to ask landlords is how recently the shophouse was refurbished or renovated. Nonetheless, even with their history, shophouses can definitely be restored with modern workspace interiors. Coworking spaces located in shophouses, alternatively, are already fully-fitted, requiring no additional work from your end!
