B HOUSE

Location: Madridejos, Bantayan Island, Cebu, Philippines

Project Status: Design development phase

The B House rests on a one-hectare lot in Madridejos, Bantayan. With a lot as expansive as this one, the client has requested to use as much space as possible for their home. A circular driveway leads to the house. The spaces of the house have been designed to sprawl out over the lot. On one wing, there are the living area and the bedrooms while on the other, are the more active zones, like the dining area and kitchen, the family room and the client’s workshop. In the middle of both wings is an L-shaped swimming pool with a hallway that connects them. The pool also extends in the front, creating a small water feature by the entrance porch. The carpark and service areas are also separated from the main house, taking advantage of the sheer size of the lot. The structure also adds to the wide façade of the house.
