A LANDSCAPE DEFINED BY PLACE AND DESIGNED BY NATURE

The streetscape of the Banteay Srei Estates harmomise naturalness with function, merging earth, vegetation and contour with roads, cycle-ways and footpaths. Our design emphasises the utilisa­tion of materials that are local and natural, including stones and plants, which reflect the physical and cultural personality of the Banteay Srei area.

 

STREETS RE-IMAGINED

Our street layout re-imagines roads and paths, not as the exclusive preserve of vehicles, but as places that accommodate the wider practical and intrinsic needs of people; merging nature and function with concepts that align with the wider vision of the Song Saa Reserve. A key aspect of our streetscape design is the promotion of flow between private and public space, including the replacement of solid fences with mixed block and bamboo walls, interspaced with vegetation and areas of open border. Other features include the use of eco-sourced plantings and the installation of unobtrusive speed controls—islands and road humps—in strategic locations.
