Macallum is an alteration and addition for a series of warehouses located in Lebuh Maccallum, in Pulau Penang. The projects seeks to rejuvenate the block into a F&B hub which also engages with the surrounding context, creating its own cultural hub. The family owned warehouses have a rich history as a timber saw mill facility, and it was fitting that the history of the family be preserved through carefully picking certain elements from the site. The proposal injects an F&B hub, as well as Co-living and co- working spaces into the mix.
