The Breeze House is a 310 m² tropical modern residence in Cambodia by UAD Architects.
The House is a tropical residence that blends seamlessly into the environment. It’s located in Siem Reap town, near the Angkor Archaeological Park. The House’s design is influenced by the area’s preexisting trees and climate, which is also reflected in the concept. The design process was conducted mainly through discussions about the client’s experiences with spaces.
The solutions need to be addressed comprehensively. The owner wanted a sit spot close to a water feature, which would allow him to maintain privacy and openness while still allowing him to see most of the house. This space also has a dynamic layout, with the owner’s daily routines determining its size.
The client wanted a central distributing space that would allow easy access to the family’s living area. This design considered the client’s wishes for a well-defined space with various water features. A central open skylight provides natural light and a stack effect to the internal openings, while a garden tree and other vegetation contribute to the overall experience.
The designers created natural vegetation elements that make comfortable and attractive areas around buildings. They also designed the various features of the public outdoor space, such as the water fountain, walkway, and terrace. Combining these elements allows users to enjoy the weather and the sound of rain and water.
