FUTURE’S RESIDENTIAL DESIGN TRANSFORMS LIVING IN CAMBODIA
In the ever-expanding urban landscape of Phnom Penh, Future Architects recognized the need to redefine the concept of homes amid rapid urbanization and economic growth. In response, they embarked on a transformative journey in 2019 when commissioned by Kambujaya to create a boutique residential development that would set new standards for living in Cambodia.
This visionary project was born from an understanding of residents' aspirations to live harmoniously with nature and a realization that existing developments often failed to foster connectivity among family members within their own homes.
The design philosophy revolved around integrating passive strategies, allowing homeowners to harness the power of natural resources, such as abundant daylight and refreshing cross-ventilation. The strategic placement of greenery at the front and rear of each house created an oasis of tranquility, offering a respite from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Whether it's a busy work-from-home day or a leisurely one, residents can bask in the warm embrace of sunlight and the gentle caress of the wind.
The heart of the design lies at the center of the layout, where a vertically spanning lightwell illuminates both private and public spaces across the ground and second floors. This innovative approach redefines the living experience, forging connections between spaces and people.
In recognition of this remarkable achievement, the boutique residential development designed by Future for Kambujaya was honored with the prestigious PropertyGuru Cambodia Awards in 2022.
