Construction of sustainable, flood resistant housing is underway in Cambodia

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

I am very pleased to share with you the latest photos of the construction of two of the winning house designs from The Future of Sustainable Housing in Cambodia competition. The winners were announced in March and we are very happy to see progress of the builds on the outskirts of Phnom Penh.

‘Open Embrace’ by Lisa Ekle & Keith Greenwald’s design allowed for the selected family of 5 to have an open house design made from both brick and wood.

The house has been constructed under the supervision of the Habitat for Humanity Cambodia team and a local workforce skilled in building houses.

The second design which has recently finished construction is Courtyard House by Jess Lumley and Alexander Koller from the UK. Their design was chosen by a family who needed a space to keep chickens.

The family were brought to the construction site to discuss with the Habitat for Humanity Cambodia team about their house design.

With two of the three homes complete and the families settled into their new homes, I look forward to sharing with you photos of the third winning design WET/DRY house very soon.

Many thanks once again for the amazing support and assistance of theĀ Habitat for Humanity Cambodia team and their local workforce for creating such fantastic homes for families very much in need.

Thanks for reading,

Louise
