After the great success of Jam Factory
in Klongsan, architect-slash-entrepreneur Duangrit Bunnag is crossing the river to turn an abandoned warehouse compound in Charoenkrung Soi 30 into Warehouse 30
, a cool new creative space.
Duangrit is working with Rungsima Kasikranund, ex-editor of Elle Decor, to create a 4,000-sq-meter “creative community complex” that will be the dreamland of hipsters.
Among the highlights will be a roaster cafe by Library, a fresh juice bar, a cocktail and wine bar by Never Ending Summer, a flower shop by Casa Lapin’s Wallflower, a vinyl records shop and a bookstore by Candide.
You will also find the flagship store of Duangrit's fashion brand, Lonely Two Legged Creatures, a showroom for 8080 motorcycles and a theater, dubbed Black Box, operated by Documentary Club.
Located a five-minute walk from the new TCDC
on Charoenkrung Road (slated to open in May), Warehouse 30 will also be home to One Big House, a co-working and networking space by the Japan-born FabCafe.
Neighbors include P.Tendercool
, whose gallery-like showroom shows off gorgeous handmade furniture.
The compound is set to open this April, about the same time as Chang Chui
, another creative community about to launch in Thonburi.
