Vietnam & Cambodia Tour
Tuesday Mar 04, 2014

Angkor Wat - The temples of Angkor Wat are an amazing site to behold, photograph and to experience. The massive size coupled with the stone work and carvings makes this UNESCO World Heritage Site an amazing place to come and photograph.

We started today at 4:30 a.m. in order to reach Angkor Wat Temple and be in position for sunrise. It was a little overcast this morning so the sunrise colours were muted, but the reflections and surroundings sure delivered on some great images. We spent more time shooting and exploring then returned to the hotel for breakfast and to freshen up. Later in the morning we went back into the park and visited two other temples. We will be going back again tomorrow to visit a few other temples.

This evening we had a group dinner just a short walk from our hotel. Then some of the group took tuk tuk’s into the night markets here in Siem Reap. Enjoy the selection of images from today’s photo shoots. It was another amazing day. A little warm, 30C today.

A bathroom of epidemic Indian zeal

Provided by notable furniture in Cambodia
construction materials, architect Peter Christoff has been funded to design a model bathroom base on India culture.

The concept is to have the bathroom adapt to Indian culture with a simple yet not the basic sense. Thus, Christoff came up with the idea of using walls to print screen a depicted film of Hindu goddesses for the suggested request.

"The owners had many photos and books for us to study, so we did a series of sketches," said Christoff. "The images from these sketches were screen-printed onto film that was sandwiched between two large glass plates. The wall has the added advantage of being easy to clean."
He added: "These wonderful colours reinforce the Indian palette,"

"So, too does the commissioned sandstone wall plaque mounted on the fence beyond the window.
For simplicity, the vanity is pure white, with skewed aluminium drawer door pulls, and the mixer is wall mounted. "Christoff concluded.

The Prevailing Model House

Here is the special building has been created as the impressive living place, leading to furniture shop in Cambodia
construction materials
“As a rejection of this prevailing model the project sought to sensitively provide a high quality infill development as a modest and discreet intervention to the streetscape.
The key element in the development of the concept is the rammed earth wall, which serves at once as a party wall and boundary identifier, and as an anchor grounding the dwellings and holding them in the landscape.
One of our primary aims was the development of a sensitive typology for urban consolidation in what is an established outer suburban fringe setting.
The lack of defining boundary elements along the street preserves the original landscape features and serves to unify the streetscape appearance and reinforce the prevailing neighborhood character”, as the architects said.

Light, airy, and bold by Cheryl Kees Clendenon

As successful furniture shop in Cambodia
construction materials
informed, the designer opted dark walnut cabinets with white CaesarStone countertops and a white-tiled backsplash for the creating a greater space and reinforcing the lavender-colored walls which was the request of a daring theme.
"To offset the bright lavender, the trim is painted in a soft dove-gray shade, rather than the typical white," the designer added. "Visually, this blends in to create a much quieter look."

The floor tiles also help emanate the light and airy ambience to the kitchen.

Upholstery coverage by Diane Bohstedt

"Entertaining was important for them," said designer Diane Bohstedt of the featured kitchen’s remodel project, as provided by notable furniture in Cambodia construction materials. "They also liked the idea of a furniture style for their kitchen, with lots of different finishes and architectural details in the cabinetry."
Bohstedt opted an eclectic approach with different hues to make the design aesthetic multifold. Walls are painted in yellow color according to owners’ favorite palette. The cabinetry is in a painted finish of creamy white with a light toffee glaze while the central cabinets are in stained alder wood that brings warmth to the space.
"Even though pieces like the pantry are fully functional cabinets, they look like furniture," added Bohstedt. "From the hallway, the furniture look is the first thing you notice."

Well connected

"We wanted a more open, collaborative and flexible workplace," said owner of this modern office suit about its concept, as provided by notable furniture in Cambodia
construction materials. "While we have corporate design guidelines, we were happy to push the boundaries on these – the brief was very open."
Space connections were essential in the design. "This provides four entry points to the office, including the main reception area," designer Shagufta Anurag said. "Each of these four linked areas also takes the form of a plus sign, with collaborative, breakout areas situated at the intersection point, rather than on the outer edges of the office. This means staff enter directly into a café-style social space, where they can stop and say hello to fellow workers and get a coffee first thing in the morning."
"It's a very clean-lined, transparent interior that reflects the vision of the firm," added Anurag. "There is a real sense of what lies beyond – the unlimited capabilities of Clifford Chance."
