A HIDDEN ART SANCTUARY
Room To Imagine is a boutique art studio located in the vibrant neighbourhood of Jalan Besar where old meets new. Sitting cosy at the top level of a shophouse, the space enjoys plenty of natural light with large windows looking out to greenery. Stepping in, you will be greeted by painted canvases, handcrafted pieces, and a dizzying variety of potted plants that populate the studio. It is a place where curiousity, creativity and conversations are encouraged, an inspiring space perfect for art-making.
To first-time visitors, we often liken locating the studio to finding your way to a speakeasy. It is not visible in plain sight and may not be the easiest place to get to, but definitely a rewarding destination. A poster, a card and a black metal signage will lead the way. Keep your eyes peeled and follow the breadcrumbs.
Address: 395 Jalan Besar, #04-01, Singapore 209006
Opening Hours: By appointment only
Do note that this is a walk-up shophouse with no lift access. Sensible footwear is recommended 😉
