Cambodian Style Apartment


Given the chance, I would like to have this design for an apartment in the Philippines.  This is typical of a Cambodian house.  They used to have this room on the mezzanine or second floor making the second floor appeared to be somewhat half only of the entire floor area of the building.  I can't find a valid explanation for this yet in my own analysis as I haven't got the chance to ask any local friend about this design of the typical Cambodian houses.  The only thing that I've noticed is that, on most Cambodian houses, they would place their altar on a small terrace situated inside the house.  It's quite strange for me the first time I saw a typical Cambodian house as in the Philippines, we would normally have the terrace outside the house.  But I love this design though, very simple and straight forward.  The high ceiling on the living room makes the house roomy and airy.  Looks very neat too!

  1. Sis, I like this layout..simple and spacious because of the high ceiling. I could think of a lot of things to do for the mezzanine part...like sleeping area or reading loft or whatever. Really nice.
