Project Name:The B House
Location: Cauayan, Isabela
Description: “The B House” This contemporary design residential is inspired from a well known furniture piece in the Province of Isabela, the Sillon or “BUTACA”. A chair with long armrest, seats and back are made of woven cane or rattan to facilitate ventilation and promote comfort in the humid tropical air. Considering all the requirements of the client, site location and climate in the area, we merge them into 1 composite unit and come up with this modern Filipino design house. Similar to the sillon, the house boasts of wide openings and vents to allow the cold air inside and hot air to escape at the upper portion that makes the house cool during summer. Sun breakers were inspired from the woven "Solihiya" of the Butaca.
