Pasteur Institute entrance renovation, 2021
The renovation of the Institut Pasteur du Cambodge on Preah Monivong Boulevard, finds a balance between the accrued need for safety and a renewed sense of welcoming.
A glass brick wall is erected on the main boulevard screening entries while allowing transparency to the renovated entrance courtyard. Behind, two newly built pavilion containing a travel sampling facility and a waiting room will bath in a beautiful filtered natural light.
The flow is simplified by the new architectural configuration while sanitary risks are better controlled. Visitors will be channeled from a front reception through a gallery, under a light metal structure complemented with lush planters.
