    Default A Minimalist Take on a Cambodian Country Home


    Justin Mott for The New York Times
    The tropical home of Borath and Daničle Ros in Siem Reap, near the Angkor Wat temples, was inspired by the modernist, concrete-enamored movement known as New Khmer Architecture. The home, built for $150,000, is seen here from the rear.

    Love it.

    It has no redeeming features whatsover. Looks like an abandoned telephone exchange building.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I'd stay there for a few days as a base check out Angkor Wat, and that's it. It's ugly.

    The title makes me laugh. Minimalist, country, Cambodian... I'd have expected a WWII bunker thing. In the midst of plush landscape. This is elaborate modern any way you look at it.

    i like the house itself and how you can open and close it with those blinds, love the cement. but the wood they used for the floors and doors is too orange and i hate all the furniture except for the bed. that bed's cool.
