Contemporary Houses in the Philippines

Images Publishing

Robert Powell

  • Featuring 25 newly built houses, this book traces the remarkable surge in the number of sophisticated and elegantly designed homes in the Philippines. All the architects and designers featured are Filipino, many representing an emerging energetic younger generation of architects and interior designers in the country.

    The book depicts houses located in the metropolis and on the edge of urban conurbations, vacation homes over-looking the West Philippine Sea, country retreats at Tagaytay City and Cabuyao and island villas. Beautifully photographed and aided by numerous architectural drawings, texts include in-depth information about both houses and designers.

    A detailed introduction outlines the various influences, background and history involved in this fascinating building boom.

    Powell, aided adroitly by Lim, takes the reader through the evolution of residential architecture in the Philippines from the 1950s to the early years of the 21st century and highlights the diverse outcomes.
