CEBUANO ARCHITECTA Cebu-based Filipino architect came up with a simple yet sophisticated "tropical modern home" design that totally fit the #housegoals of thousands of netizens.
The design concept shared by Architect Carby Jason G. Osorio features a "contemporary loft-type" house with lots of light and space for two bedrooms, a living room, and a dining/kitchen area.
A virtual 3D tour on YouTube also gives a clear picture of what each room is all about.
According to Osorio, the combination of amakan (woven bamboo) and plain concrete features "offers a refreshing yet sophisticated way of living either in the mountains or by the beach."
Though the amakan was only architectural cladding, Osorio thinks it's one of the best features of the house design.
AMAKAN HOUSEThe architect actually came up with the concept after coming across a lovely amakan house during a trip to El Nido, Palawan.
“I was at awe with the design and it made it feel so welcoming and homey just like how it was before the urbanization took place. This inspired me to come up with an amakan concept but with a modern touch to it,” Osorio shared.
It seems more and more Filipinos are taking an interest at modernized old school designs. A young architect from Bohol, Zeus Zamora, shared his "tiny house" design that featured indigenous Filipino materials like Sawali.
