The Eden

Introducing the Eden - the perfect option for a home office, healing space, or a luxurious Aircrete glamping structure, designed to bring you closer to nature without compromising on comfort. 

This Eden that we built at a workshop in Hawaii features a spacious interior with a comfortable queen-sized bed and a front sitting area. This small, yet cozy structure is perfect for couples or small families looking for a unique getaway experience. 

Workshop Learning Objectives

  • Learn our methods of building an Eden structure that is fire and rot resistant, insulative, sustainable,  and strong

  • Work in a friendly and respectful team setting to co-create under the guidance of our instructors

  • Build archway form and window frame

  • Mix Aircrete with Domegaia's unique tools - Aircrete is an amazing, material that you can make yourself at home - almost as easily as making pancake batter!

  • Roughing-in electrical conduit (not wiring)

  • Stack bricks with our mortar recipe

  • Apply reinforcement fabric-mesh with stucco

  • "Classroom" exercises and discussions

  • Topics: Foundation pouring, compass arm assembly, window installation, door and door jam construction & installation

  • We will offer an inspirational and informative slideshow presentation and dedicated Q&A time!

*Please Note: During this 5-day (hands-on) workshop, we will build a basic arch structure. Instruction includes the fundamentals of pouring, stacking and structural reinforcement of the Eden but does not include plumbing or finishing installations. Unexpected obstacles such as adverse weather conditions, for example, may affect our progress.

  • Done Right Hostel 

  • Corner Stone Hotel

  • Little Escape

  • The Cocoon

  • A Maze Inn

Since the workshop is held 3 km away from the lodging, the hosts will be arranging a shuttle service for this. 

Meal Plan Options

The meal plan will consist of breakfast, lunch and dinner, provided by local restaurants and chefs.

Meat and vegan options will be available 

Transportation Options 

There some different types of motorcycles for rent in the village. Driving is at your own risk. July is the beginning of rainy season and it can get muddy.

If there is demand for bicycles, hosts will make sure to have some available for rent. It’s pretty flat in Nesat, and it is the most eco-friendly way to move around. 

Katrine is happy to arrange transport from the capital to the village, you can email Katrine for info. 

If you want to get to and from the village by yourself, here is a useful description.

About our hosts:  Simen  & Katrine Solhaug

We are a couple from Norway (with two daughters, 3 and 5 years old) who lived in Cambodia for 15 years, running an eco-conscious guesthouse in Siem Reap, called Babel Guesthouse. Now we want to take “green passion” to another level and build eco-friendly simple places for our guests to stay in the south of Cambodia.

We bought land near a Forrest protected area, and are part of a new community of like minded people who are building a new small community, just 3 km from the beach. We’re also developing a small community on a mangrove beach near our own land, wanting to lead the way by building eco-friendly with Domegaia. 

Location Details:  Nesat, Cambodia 

Nesat is still very remote and “untouched”. Nesat is the real Cambodia, how people have lived here for centuries, and is becoming more popular for travelers and tourists alike as its beauty is being shared.

Whether you spend your time on the breathtaking beaches, explore jungle waterfalls and mangroves, or spend your time in town getting to know the kind-hearted locals, Nesat is a destination you'll be grateful you've visited.
