This historical landmark in the heart of KL is home to a thriving arts space where art lovers gather for an immersive and intimate experience

​Located in Lorong Ampang, Kuala Lumpur, The Godown is an arts space offering immersive experiences, like exhibitions, performances, workshops, art markets, and more.

The space is a fusion of a historical Dutch warehouse and a semi open-air extension designed by Ling Hao Architects. If you're a lover of the arts, this space is the perfect go-to when you want to appreciate and take part in the local arts scene.

Earlier this year, The Godown hosted a Buka Buku showcase where the exhibition revolved around the Chinese folding book as a medium of exchanging ideas beyond physical means
