Thonburi hipsters are about to get a brand new creative hub. Taking over a large 11-rai plot on Sirindhorn Road, the 18 separate buildings of Chang Chui (www.fb.com/ChangChuiBKK) are all made from reused materials.

Projects include a theater that will host performances by Pichet Klunchun and other renowned artists, and a cinema that will accommodate screenings by the Documentary Club.

There will also be a creative space slash library run by the team from Ma-D, design-led shopping stalls and a food court curated by the property's owner, Somchai Songwattana, founder of Flynow.

Another highlight is an old disused plane, which will carry the owner’s private collection of stuffed animals under a Noah’s Ark theme and also feature a restaurant-slash-bar by the Seven Spoons team.

Set to open this March.
