Tucked away in an unassuming industrial area of Mount Austin Johor Bahru, JWC The Factory 30 Cafe appears as an inviting red building, unmistakably the most eye-catching landmark in the mundane district. With the bold statement of rustic-industrial style complemented with great ceiling height, this creative space reveals a series of elements such as containers, exposed pipes, iron materials and raw wood, all brilliantly incorporated into this charming cafe. In addition, the industrial mezzanine floor accommodates a larger capacity to the cafe, making efficient use of this unique space without sacrificing aesthetics.
