The requirements from the client was to design three villas with a tropical modern feeling with some vernacular elements as well. The program needed to have 3 bedroom ensuite, kitchen, living and dining area, garden and a pool.
Because of the shape of the land, around 30m deep by 9.5m wide we decided to design a hybrid between Villa and Apartment. With the facilities as a villa like two gardens and pool, the house works inside as an apartment with a mezzanine and a double height space.
The two main facades play with different design languages. The one on the front its designed with a more vernacular feeling with a Limasan roof and local stone. And the other facade in the back with flat roof and big opening is designed with a more modern tropical feeling.
