duhaylungsod residence

A two-story residence for an anthropologist/professor and environmentalist living in Luisiana, Laguna, Philippines. The design of the house was inspired from the hexagonal shape of a pattern found in the textiles of the T’Boli. The T’Boli pattern is reminiscent of the symbol found in the T’nalak textile that refers to “a man inside a house”. Placed on a slope, one side of the house takes advantage of a spectacular view of Mount Banahaw. Service included conceptual until design development and visits during construction (1995).
