kalinga tropical house

“Kalinga,” which means “caring” or “nurturing” in Filipino, is the inspiration for this multi-level house in Tagaytay City, Philippines. Envisioned to be a nurturing and sheltering house sensitive to the needs of the clients and the environment, the house is designed as a series of pavilions raised on pilotis and spread over a sloping site. The house also takes advantage of views towards Taal Volcano on the southern side of the property (1995).
