In the midst of new urban normal, there are new suggestions for bigger homes and to incorporate co-working spaces in public libraries.
Are our current residential layouts and sizes suitable as a home in times of crisis or for new working and living patterns?
As Singapore population ages, housing towns and neighbourhoods need to be self-sufficient with good connectivity.
Building larger units could be one idea to up the space in homes but this will increase cost of homes and affect housing affordability. In the short-term, there is a need to look for flexible solutions to work with existing resources in the housing estates at lower costs.
Hence came the possible ideas of using public libraries and residents committee centres (RCC) to become co-working spaces. This originates from the popularity and demand of co-working spaces mostly located in the central business district and regional centres.
However, whatever plans that come out of the ideas need to take into account the flexibility to change as and when the need arises. It is not easy to predict how situations and change in lifestyles will be like after this pandemic.

With this pandemic therefore comes the need to look for more space in a home. Homes built efficiently to prevent wastage of space is best and space to cater to the Work From Home (WFH) situation now is gladly welcomed by buyers. Take a look at new condo launch
projects to decide which is most suitable for your individual and family’s needs. Or perhaps you may like to consider Dual Key Property
that allows you to have a separate suite housed within the same roof. This will let you have peace of mind when you WFH in a part of the house but away from the noise of young kids so that you can concentrate on your office work and conference calls or zoom sessions. A dual key unit not only gives you privacy of space, you also get to enjoy only paying one Buyer Stamp Duty
without the Additional Buyer Stamp Duty if it is your first private property condo Singapore purchase.
