A decaying shop in Cambodia gains a new life through adaptive reuse principles

Phnom Penh-based firm Bloom Architecture has unveiled a beautiful renovation of a decaying building in Kampot, Cambodia. Ages ago, the building housed a family-run store, but the space had been abandoned for years. To preserve its historical significance in the riverside town, the architects focused on maintaining the building’s original features as much as possible while turning it into a home and restaurant. The result is 3,444 square feet of breezy interior spaces with an adaptive reuse strategy that blends the best of traditional Chinese shophouse typology with modern day comfort.
