"A stunning location in the heart of colonial Chinatown… If you’re into food and art then The Warehouse is the place to satisfy your craving." – Lifestyle Asia, February 2012
Wander into The Warehouse Gallery and you walk into a different world. From the heat and noise of the street outside, be transported into an immense space of cool, peaceful tranquillity.Simple white walls present beautiful artwork, sunlight streams through the huge windows, and cool music accompanies you as you explore.
The Warehouse is a unique concept gallery showcasing the best in contemporary Malaysian art, based on the philosophy that art is for everyone and should be both accessible and affordable. Located in a stunning century-old former textiles warehouse in the heart of vibrant colonial Chinatown, the gallery has soaring ceilings and quirky original features – think sleek and sophisticated meets KL vintage. Jalan Tun H S Lee is the old colonial high street of KL, and is treasure trove of beautiful, original architecture. The oldest and richest Hindu temple in the city, Sri Mahamariamman, is right across the street, while the famous Sze Ya Temple – the oldest Chinese temple in KL – is just a few doors down.
Uniquely in the area, the gallery has carefully preserved all its original features – from the steel elevator shaft and antique ceiling beams to the exposed brick pillars and original terracotta tiles. In dramatic contrast, the striking artworks and the cool, quirky interior design play together to create a vibrant union of past and present.
