YELO House, You Ever Live Once
Yelo House is an 40 years old warehouse for printing equipment converted into multi-functioned space to serve as a platform for creative–minded people. A team of creatives made the project: Hans Werner Muller, Sallayawate Prasertwittayakarn, Suwanni Suwansaengroj and Tanat Singhasuwit. Together they turned the building into a gallery, co-working space, studio and café.
The name YELO comes from “You Ever Live Once,” expressing how the old warehouse has come back to life and vitality once more. A hub of art and design runs from a quiet soi through to the canal behind with windows overlooking Saen Saeb canal.
Hub of art and design
The creative space is dedicated to exhibitions, meet up, work together in projects and more. I went there and was positively surprised by everything what I saw. The renovation project of warehouse kept the original structure and texture, which made Yelo House even more interesting to visit. In fact, Yelo House is cool!
I recommend the visit to Yelo House because the artists displaying their arts there are relatively unknown yet but with an impressive talent. In addition each exhibition room has a different theme.
It’s pretty near, just a short walk to Bangkok Art and Culture Center (BACC) and the famous The Jim Thompson House. And also easy to reach by BTS Skytrain and public bus. Yes, it’s in Siam shopping area, near MBK, Siam Discovery and Siam Paragon, but tucked away at the end of the Kasemsan Soi 1. But this hub of art is highly recommended for those who would like to escape the chaotic life in Bangkok and enjoy a tasty meal with a good cup of coffee in a peaceful setting.

We truly appreciate this kind of creative project, because our The Yard Hostel is constructed from shipping containers and other reused materials. And our yard is a little oasis for those who want to relax and escape from busy Bangkok.
