Design of eco-tourism pod in the northern plains of Cambodia supporting protection of the critically endangered giant ibis.
We worked with the community to deisgn and build a prototype of new eco pod that could double as bird watching hide. The project is part of an ongoing award wining eco toursim project supported by WCS that provides villagers with an income for protecting the giant Ibis nests around the village and rice paddys
We were looking for something special and different from the main stream, We didn't want the same cookie cutter approach we had found elsewhere. The team at COLE took us through the design process and delivered far beyond our initial expectations and we could not be more happy with the results.

People comment about the building when they visit, They love the way it fuses the old with the new. I love the way the light comes through the spaces in the morning it does not fail to make me smile
