Cultivating creativity at Commune


There is an increasing trend nowadays to work remotely, with more digital nomads coming up in the workforce and students increasingly looking out for places to study and work aside from the college or university library. This is the need that Commune addresses and fills.

Located on Level 5 of Sunway Velocity Mall, Commune doubles as both a cosy hangout spot for students and a co-working hub for adults, complete with various F&B outlets housed within an expansive area for an all-inclusive experience. Commune, in short, is a creative space that seeks to stimulate the development of ideas and community.

Creative minds can fuel up at any of Commune’s eateries. For a good cup of coffee, SevenCups serves artisan coffee and smoothies alongside pies and ice cream in a relaxing rooftop area that’s lit up with plenty of natural light; while Warm Planets offers another option for even more coffee, cakes and dessert. You can find hot meals, pastries and fruit teas at 123 Bake, and Salad Atelier caters to those looking for a healthier option, serving customisable salads in a garden-inspired café.

Commune’s outlets also frequently organise workshops and classes to encourage ideas and get creative juices flowing. Its newest tenant is HeArt Craft Studio, an art studio offering aroma and art therapy via a selection of workshops such as Zentangle, Japanese pastel art, ancient mandala painting and more, all designed to help you reconnect with yourself.

Additionally, the baking studio 123 Bake hosts reasonably priced baking workshops for all ages and Warm Planets often runs coffee brewing workshops for both the coffee enthusiast and novice. Kids (and adults too) can nurture their creative side by creating environmentally friendly items at Cardboard Country’s art workshops, taking part in clay art classes at Yenji, or exploring the art of 3D printing with workshops and classes at Techne City.

If you’re looking to add a bit of green to your home, JC Nursery is a concept and plant lifestyle store that sells an extensive selection of air plants, terrariums, succulents and more. You can also find options and ideas for your own wabi kusa, a simple indoor water garden that’s receiving attention in the aquascaping world.
