Chieng Yen Community House

April 22, 2019

Chieng Yen Community House was built with the intention of creating a space—a common house of sorts and information centre—for the different groups to come together to share and let the various cultural and traditional handicrafts and practices be known; and possibly where tourism activities could also take place.

Nestled amidst a picturesque setting of the forest greenery and waterfall, it seeks to attract and promote social resources, as well as to inspire the local communities of the surrounding areas—potentially encouraging a sustainable development of culture, economy and construction, leveraging architecture-based vernacular wisdom. The project itself aims to contribute positively to the activities and livelihoods of the local communities.
