A first for the Philippines– architect Miñana gets on World Architecture shortlist

FOR this “open Filipino-Asian house,”Miñana was inspired by the sturdy Filipino mountainside tribal houses. Two amply pitched roofs with wide eaves on stilts in post and lintel fashion are connected by a horizontal slab-bridgeway. Another derivative, the bahay-na-bato, inspired ground floors of heavy adobe stone walls, creating contrastwith open, transparent second floors.Highlighting this openness, various layers of “skin” allow the house to
“breathe” and have various levels of engagement with its environment. Layers of glass, screen and sunbreakers (in aluminum powdercoat wood finish) protect the home from extreme weather yet allow the panoramic landscape into the interiors. (From Villa Marina description by the architect)

A home designed by architect Emmanuel “Manny” Miñana, which was featured in Inquirer Lifestyle last June 18, has been selected on the shortlist for the 2014 awards of the World Architecture Festival.
