BACKGROUND

Located at the General Post Office area in Phnom Penh, the former Indochina Bank has remained true to its charming beauty of the French Belle Époque as expressed by the French colonial era in Indochina. The renovation of this monumental bank building has been done with the special emphasis for the preservation of its original wood works and its mosaic floor tiling.

The former Indochina Bank whose head office was in Hanoi, started to construct its branch office in Cambodia around 1900 in a grandeur style, and by 1960 this branch office building in Phnom Penh was sold to a Cambodian industrial who turned it into his private office and private residence.

After 1980, this branch building served as the head-quarter of the State Rural Development Bank, then in 2004, this same building was contracted back to the children of the former private owner for the purpose of renovation.

In refurnishing this bank building into a useful commercial property, this bank has regained a new commercial value by serving as High Standard offices and French Gastronomic restaurant .In this way, the children of this former Cambodian industrial hope to contribute to the preservation of Cambodia’s National cultural and past architectural heritage, simply by matching the authentic taste of French Cuisine with the classic French architectural style of the Belle-Époque ; as quality and good French food is continually being demanded by existing Cambodian consumers.
