Cambodia’s newest cultural hub is inside a former garment factory

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

Cambodia has unveiled a brand new mixed-use technology and community hub built inside a former industrial factory..

Factory Phnom Penh is located on 3.4 hectares of land, and includes over 16 buildings that were previously used as an old garment factory. It currently stands as Cambodia’s largest co-working space, and includes a number of art galleries, a trampoline park, a gymnasium, a café and a cantina serving Asian fusion food

The design itself was inspired by the former garment factory and the aim was to keep an industrial sense of place. Workspace 1 is a large co-working space that offers a number of different packages to those needing an office, including a day pass (complete with a hot desk and access to showers, kitchenette and lockers), a part-time membership, a fixed desk and a team desk.

Currently the site has a pop-up green space that is soon to host some fast food vendors, kid-friendly swings, and water fountains. “Visitors are welcome to explore our beautiful art walls, hidden alleys, the country’s largest skateboard park, and even a beer brewery (where soon, there will be a beer museum and beer-testing),” a representative of Factory Phnom Penh said.

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.
