Kilang Bateri, Johor Bahru

In little more than a year, Kilang Bateri has gone from a decrepit shell of an old Eveready battery factory to an incredibly popular site for Johor Bahru’s thriving creative scene. The minds behind the rejuvenation project saw a brand new way to use the abandoned space without rebuilding the structure. The architecture of the factory has been preserved to retain an industrial style in its interior.
Both rustic and modern signs of nostalgia are intentionally abundant from the vintage stone benches bearing the Eveready logo to the classic Cadillac convertible in the entryway. Art installations and a rooftop for gatherings enhance the visitor experience.

Kilang Bateri is now home to over 180 local entrepreneurs with concept stores, cafes, a skating rink, and for the hirsute, even a barber shop. A prime spot for events such as Johor Fashion Week, concerts and New Year’s Eve celebrations, Kilang Bateri is now a hotspot for community activity, with plans to replicate the experience in Perak, Pulau Pinang, Kuala Lumpur, Terengganu and Sarawak.
