Cafe filled with salvaged wood furniture

A soot black shophouse basking in the sun just looks glorious. Especially when it also has an open black and white wooden porch smack in front of it. That’s how I found myself lured into Artistry, a cafe-bar-restaurant, part art space in Singapore that recently set up base at the first floor of said shophouse. According to co-owner Prashant Somosundram, the porch, massive communal table and stools were upcycled and custom-built with wood salvaged from replica kampong huts that were torn down in Geylang Serai’s Malay Village. The textures are great.
