Orient Occident Atelier builds community hall in Cambodia that harvests clean drinking water

Hong Kong architecture studio Orient Occident Atelier has designed a civic centre that harvests water for the small Cambodian village of Sneung.

Called WaterHall, the 60-square-metre complex consists of two structures built in loose, honeycomb brickwork.

One building is entirely closed to the public in order to preserve the interior pump, which brings water in from a nearby lake using a system of underground pipes, and the water filtration system through which it is purified.
