On Saturday, August 27, 2022 Y CHHE GROUP, a leading construction materials supplier, hosted ‘OUR HOME 2030’, an architectural competition that challenges young architects and creative minds to reimagine Cambodian homes in the year 2030. The competition, organized in collaboration with Parbury Investments, The Idea, and CBRE Cambodia, received a positive public response and a high level of engagement, especially among online audiences.
Spanning from January 17 until August 27, 2022, the OURHOME 2030 competition was met with interest by Cambodia’s top universities, with some of the most ambitious and dedicated students from Norton University, Limkokwing University, ITC Institution, and the Royal University of Fine Arts submitting outstanding designs.
Y Chhe Group CFO, Mrs. Te Vong Kim stated “The OURHOME2030 competition is in line with Y Chhe’s "Innovation & Development" pillar. We want to give aspiring designers and architects the opportunity to showcase their creativity and analytical thinking and to be apart of designing the future of Cambodia. We also hope it would start a discussion on how design can and should enhance our lives while addressing important environmental and social factors.”
A total of 36 entries were submitted, and after rigorous rounds of reviews with judges, a series of one-on-one workshops, and final presentations by the teams, the first place was awarded to Phai Sopanha, Horn Seavmey, Nhep Salrithym and Tang Sengheng of “The Infinite” team from Norton University.
Our Home 2030’s judge, Mr. Tobias Griffiths, principal architect from Alexander Te Studio, stated ‘The team responded to the competition brief well, scoring the highest points in the environmental and social response categories. As well as the project is well developed and coherent, and the team has made a very good use of references.’
The 1st winner of OURHOME2030 competition, Ms. Horn Seavmey says she’s “thankful for the opportunity to join the OURHOME 2030 competition, which helped a lot of young Cambodian architectures develop and test their skills.
