Soho Factory is located in Kamionek, a neighborhood in Warsaw with rich and diverse history. A jute factory was established on the site before the World War I, only to be officially taken over by the Ammunition Plant “Pocisk” in 1920. The main production building was destroyed during World War II. After restoration, it was transformed into the Warsaw Factory of Motorcycles.
Neglected over the past decades, the complex was taken over a few years ago by the current owner, who saw potential in the dilapidated space and decided to add this location to the map of Warsaw’s creative sector. In 2010 Projekt Praga was commissioned to design site interventions, including the concept of the central garden as well as adaptation and revitalization projects of buildings 18, 19, 23, 46 and more.
