Yellow Tower

Cocooned in foliage and outfitted as a tech-savvy co-working space, the seven-storey Yellow Tower is the greenest office space in the capital – and one of the most aesthetically unique. Over 2,400 square metres of plant life clings to the building’s facade, forming a lush vertical garden that instills calmness and keeps out the tropical heat.

The rooftop courtyard and balconies on every floor offer sweeping views over the Chroy Changvar peninsula and across the river to the city. Each level has its own style and function, but all have high ceilings and mezzanines with large unbroken spaces bathed in natural light.

The furniture is eclectic as the floorspace, set for work, creativity and relaxation. There are boardroom tables, and billiards tables, books to read, and sofas to lounge on. There is also a kitchen full of drinks and snacks to power those creative minds – just drop some cash in the honesty jar.

Managed by Outpost, the collaborative work space offers open-plan seating, dedicated desks and private air-conditioned offices – with internet connectivity throughout and an IT room on every floor. Let your mood decide: work at a desk in an air-conditioned office, or flop down with a laptop on a beanbag chair in the breezy lounge. There are also eight private rooms for rent as needed – some spacious and stylishly furnished for a few days’ stay, others small and efficient, perfect for a quick power nap between assignments.
