OOA forms ‘Hotel Siem Reap’ in Cambodia to recall the form of wine making barrels

Hong Kong-based studio orient occident atelier (OOA) envisions a hotel in the Cambodian city of Siem Reap, an area famous for the Angkor Wat temple complex. Together with the touristic nature of the site, the region is known for its traditional home-made rice wine. Located at the village next to a paddy field, the boutique hotel overlooks Angkor Wat. The design of the boutique hotel superimposes the local Cambodian living culture with the rice wine making cylinder spaces and processes. The site was originally a colonial-era Cambodian-style police station and a rice godown in Khmer rouge period.
