History of our Angkor Home

Our Angkor home was my first major architectural project. During this process which lasted some five years – working on and off between travels to Denmark, guiding tourists and engaging in humanitarian projects – there have been smaller assignments. From 1997-98 I designed and built a wooden house for a friend in Denmark.
