Damnak Soriya is a three-bedroom, two-story pavilion house, designed with spacious proportion to inspire people to live in the moment, to reconnect with their best selves and to fully submerge with surrounding nature.
With spacious living areas, an outdoor kitchen, dining area, elevated pool, courtyard, and three large bedrooms, Soriya is designed to be porous taking in and filtering the sunlight while allowing natural ventilation to sweep under the platform and across all spaces from living spaces to bedrooms and to bathrooms. Thus, retaining core elements of a traditional Cambodian lifestyle whilst serving modern aspirations.
Home to a melting pot of cultures and communities, Kampot is widely known as a small-town retreat for relaxation and rejuvenation. In the past few years that has changed with the development of new hotels and high rises dotted along the Kampot river. However, what is still missing is a home-away-from-home concept that caters to those wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh, yet feel settled and secure in their own space.
Amaya aims to create homes that sit harmoniously within the surrounding environment, encourage well-being, and foster a sense of belonging.
Damnak Soriya is a three-bedroom and two-story, platform house-inspired home located on the foothill of Kamchay Mountain and is a provincial, raised wooden structure on stilts seen in Kampot and along the river.
The mission of the design is to create purposefully designed holiday homes that inspire people to reconnect with their best selves and fully submerge with nature and the beautiful views of the surrounding landscape.
Being one of the three types of homes designed as a private holiday home inside Amaya, Damnak Soriya offers contemporary, mid-century-inspired, holiday home living in the foothills of the Kamchay Mountains. Each home has been architecturally designed with nature and sustainability in mind and has been strategically positioned to take in views of the mountains and beyond.
While aesthetically mesmerizing, the two-story pavilion or platform house is also generous in proportion, it embraces the advantages of living in a contemporary Khmer house, focusing equally on sustainability, culture and communal values.
We understand the need for privacy as much as we value the benefits of togetherness. That is why we have designed Amaya so that residents have ample privacy while also having access to shared structures and facilities.
