Kulen accademy

School and boarding facilities to support access to education for rural communities around Siem Reap, Cambodia.



Our role


We worked with Kulen Outreach charity and Building Trust international undertaking early consultation with the school students and teachers in order to inform the design process and instill ownership in the decision making. The result is a design which responds to the need for privacy but also has transparency. The form is both inspired by traditional village architecture and stilt houses of the region. It is also modern and spacious responding to the functions and charitable concerns of supporting rural communities through progressive improvements to livelihoods and education.
