Bunker Tegalsari Surabaya Becomes the Co-working Space for Young Generations
“Bunker Tegalsari used to be the office of the Bina Marga Public Works Unit, then turned as the storage of disaster preparedness inventory that belonged to the Board for Disaster Management (BPB Linmas). Currently, it has been changed into economic facility,” said Iman Krestian, the Head of Buildings and Architecture Department of DPRKP-CKTR.
According to Iman, the architecture of Bunker Tegalsari is a historical asset that should be maintained. However, since it is turned to a co-working space, it should be renovated. The leaks on its roof and walls have been fixed. In addition to that, the interior is designed with a modern touch.
“We did not change the architecture, but we only polished and fixed some parts. We also add some restrooms near the bunker,” he stated.
Bunker Tegalsari will be handed over to Department of Industry and Trade to prepare some training and management.
Meanwhile, Bunker Tegalsari Surabaya has not been officially opened. They are still waiting for further instructions from the Mayor of Surabaya, Eri Cahyadi. Bunker Tegalsari Surabaya is not only turned to a co-working space, but it will also be the place to display some products created by the Indonesian SMEs. (*)
