Taking the leap of shifting locations within the city’s heart, The Social Space opens the doors of their new home at DUO Galleria to communities in the central bustle of Singapore. DUO twin towers, iconically designed by German architect Ole Scheeren, redefine Singapore’s skyline with his unique vision of an urban habitat fostering a conscious collaboration between humans, architecture, and nature, allowing them to coexist in productive and socially responsible ways.
With similar values and intentions, The Social Space aligns itself with the dynamic and sustainable goals that DUO has successfully achieved, making it the perfect home for this social enterprise to reside in, further promoting Scheeren’s vision.
Their wholesome cafe takes the spotlight in the center of this new space, continuing to serve specialty coffee made with love. Paired with their healthy and flavourful open-faced toasts and refreshing smoothie bowls, The Social Space at DUO brings you nutritious meals over meaningful conversations, or simply the space to unwind and recharge over delicious house-made drinks and baked goods.
Complementing the cafe lies a careful curation of fair trade retail goods that display themselves alongside the cafe. The Social Space at DUO continues to expand its selection of some of the community’s favorite retail goods, featuring a curated selection of eco and socially-conscious products that give back to communities for great causes. Find organic skincare, natural woven baskets and unexpected upcycles – think cassette tapes turned wall art, discarded plastic bottles turned coasters and motorbike tires turned flip-flops – alongside boutique-worthy conversation pieces, including handcrafted cutting boards made from sustainable Singapore-grown wood and artisanal placemats ethically hand-woven by sex-trafficking survivors in Philippines, to hand-poured soy candles in support of underprivileged communities in the Riau islands and well-being journals that promote positive mental health practices,
As with their other locations, this new outpost will also boast a selection of refillable eco-friendly household cleaners and personal care soaps from Suu Balm, Soapnut Republic, and Green Kulture, all home-grown sustainable brands committed to reducing single-use packaging waste. Ranging from hand soaps to floor cleaners and laundry liquids, this package-free refillery section boasts goods that you can trust are safe to use for your body and home, and the environment.
Not only can you get a wholesome meal at the cafe but also browse through its selection of socially-conscious products plus now it's also a co-working space!
Those looking for a chill-out locale for a great meal all while having a meeting and sourcing for sustainable products.
The Social Space DUO brings exciting expansions to its existing concepts. Truly striving to bring the community together for both work and play, this new space also includes private meeting rooms, a co-working space and all-new Work + Dine day packages.
