The heritage property at 26 Evans Road will be named "The Initial Sama", a new co-living brand coined by the hospitality management company Cover Projects, which was awarded the tender by the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) earlier today.
According to Lim Keong Wee, co-founder and managing director of Cover Projects, the name "Sama" in Sanskrit means "balanced" or "well-maintained". He intends to position the property as "a sanctuary in the city, dedicated to holistic well-being".

The property at 26 Evans Road will be converted into 74 serviced apartments, with a mix of studios and one- and two-bedroom units. The interiors will have a "retro-modern interior design, seamlessly integrating biophilic elements and natural furnishings," says Lim.

The property at 26 Evans Road will "prioritise wellness and connectivity through shared spaces like sensory and healing gardens and a wellness-focused workspace hub".
