WHAT'S THE

CONCEPT

Once an ice factory in Korangi, the unique premises with an interesting past is now being revived and transformed into a multi-functional urban space bringing together enthusiastic, young, forward thinking, driven creatives, artists and dreamers ready to stretch their minds to new heights with exhilarating experiences.
 

The formerly freezing cold space will now continue its life as a warm, creative haven & a popular hotspot, that brings together an urban style cafe, artist studios, pop up shops, educational, mentor-driven diploma hailing creative workshops, co-working space, a co-lab kitchen and a mind blowing open space courtyard, with its ever changing one-off events and weekend markets.
 

With it's striking “everything is recyclable” attitude, District19 will soon become the place to be in Karachi for like-minded individuals, students and professionals alike, to play, learn, reinvent and rise.
 

We're excited, hope you all are too!

District 19 is a space for rebellious minds to create and share.

OUR DIRECTORS

District 19 was the culmination by the individuals who craved that space in Karachi which encouraged pure artistic expression. With it's unique, eco-sustainable design,

the charm encapsulates anyone who visits the property. 

 

To bring this to the creatives in Karachi, it indeed took an army and

are grateful for the team effort to transform our vision into reality.
 

We wouldn't be here without our directors on the front lines

who continue to strive for the best
