The starting point of this architectural project was to realize the need for a mid-sized house for a small family with extended families (which is normal for a close-knit Filipino family). The client was looking for a family shelter, and urban exhaust, plus the availability of a small budget and limited construction resources specific to a relatively isolated location. The program is organized according to the dominant orientation of the lot.
This family home is intended to maximize natural lighting. Formed with a slanting roof that creates a sculptural piece, this is a curious house to be located in a Mediterranean-inspired subdivision. This interacts with surrounding landscape in charming way. Every side and corner of the home has its own outdoors lounge and garden landscape unique combination of modern home living.
