If you have ever visited a busy Asian city such as Manila you can easily understand why the brief for this house was to create a modern, serene and luxurious oasis retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Designed by the Philippine based architects Archipelago, this weekend retreat is located in Batangas and sits on a sloping block facing amazing views of Nasugbu Bay and the South China Sea.
|Love the spilt level room with the living area below - great for sloping land|
The design is light and airy, with open plan living areas and high ceilings making the most of both the ocean views and coastal breezes which is so important in any tropical climate.
The colour palette is also cool and natural with hues of white, beige and natural stone flooring, decorated with nature inspired objects and artwork.
|Simple clean lines for the house style and facade|
I am sure you would agree this style of house would sit comfortably in most coastal tropical climates.
