Description Change this

The 100 Houses project in Sihanoukville was completed in 1967 to house workers of the National Bank of Cambodia, is a collection of 100 identical houses on the outskirts of Phnom Penh.

The buildings are inspired by traditional Cambodian wood houses but rendered in refined modern detail. Some are in an advanced state decay, others have been extensively modified or replaced by over-sized luxury villas, a few are reasonably well preserved. The 100 houses development successfully combined Modernist sensibilities of solid/void and concrete construction with the traditional Khmer housing type.
