Orita Sinclair School of Design is located in the historic Kampong Glam neighbourhood. A district with a strong Malay-Arab influence, a typical day in Kampong Glam consists of streams of curious tourists, design students and fashionistas gathering to visit historic landmarks, take in the colour and vibrancy of the area or to hunt down great fashion finds.
Rows of conserved shophouses can be found in Arab Street, Baghdad Street and Bussorah Street, many of which house boutique design and IT firms, art galleries, crafts and curios shops, food caterers and restaurants. These stores blend in side by side with traditional businesses like textile and carpet shops, blacksmiths and shops selling religious items used by Muslims. It is also an area of good restaurants, from Malaysian coffee shops and bakeries to fine modern European dining. Take time to check out the graffiti on the walls -- it’s one of the best collections of street art around.
A wide range of excellent accommodation can be found in Singapore to suit all kinds of budgets and needs. Shared rooms and facilities, full board and choice of properties for rent are available through real estate agencies or selection from daily press. The accommodation fees are usually paid on a monthly or weekly basis.
The average cost per month can start from S$350 for a shared room in HDB approved apartments or student hostel. General advice with regards to the choice of accommodation could be obtained by the School’s counsellor (eg vicinity, neighbourhood, transportation connections, food facilities and pricing etc). However, the final decision is left to the student or parents/guardians.
