WHY THE GREAT ROOM
It's all work, it's all play.
In many of the world’s finest homes, a space known as The Great Room forms the heart of the property. It’s an area that lends itself to quiet discussion, moments of thought and study but also serves spectacularly for meeting, socialising and entertaining. It’s a superb spot for a think or a drink, for business or for pleasure. That is the story behind the name and our vision of becoming the modern-day version of a place where people got together. In 2016, The Great Room was born to change the way people work, meet and socialise.
We were inspired by the demand for a more holistic space in which to conduct business – the desire for somewhere to gather, create and innovate rather than merely get things done. Because beyond productivity, work is also about new conversations, connections, inspiration, contemplation and repose. The Great Room is designed to be the perfect backdrop to the highlights of life happening.
We understand that a dynamic workforce has a broad range of requirements, and catering to unique needs calls for flexibility. Our dedicated office offering is perfect for both exciting enterprises and up-and-coming organisations seeking to house a burgeoning business and our shared spaces are created to allow a new generation of self-starters to network with the best and the brightest. Each location is set in prime city spot within a thriving neighbourhood that’s business friendly and brimming with terrific restaurants, shops and nightlife. They each offer a unique design point of view and is tailored to its setting, while sharing the same elevated environment that will enrich the way you work, think and socialise… Making life “all work, all play.”
THE GREAT ROOM EXPERIENCE
Being in the heart of Orchard Road, home to global fashion brands and creatives, The Great Room Ngee Ann City interiors take its cue from Fashion. Daring to be bold with the juxtaposition of raw and refined materials: cool marbles, gleaming metallic surfaces and rich timbres, pushing the envelope with a highly graphic stone pattern on the floor, and a rather provocative selection of artworks that would ignite thought and conversations.
We co-create unique events like ZIPCODE, a two-day fashion tech summit which featured international designer Jason Wu and leading digital influencer Nicole Warne, held in partnership with Singapore Fashion Week and Ernst & Young. Members also experienced the glamour of Fashion Week when Jason Wu held his casting at The Great Room One George Street.
Our members include high-value entrepreneurs, leading corporates and grown-up startups that work in the technology, finance and creative industries. Every member contributes to an environment that is open, inspiring and dynamic, while helping create a powerful social and business network.
We offer a range of flexible office solutions. Whether you’re a fast-growing company in need of an entire floor, or a dynamic entrepreneur on the lookout for the perfect hot-desking environment, we have plans that cater to your unique specifications.
