Patindog Balay sa Bacolod?
Building your new house in Bacolod City doesn’t start with the pouring of the foundation. A house is a work of art and is the product of the blood, sweat and tears of the entire construction team. But before the actual construction, it all starts with you. Costly mistakes during home design and construction could be avoided if you plan ahead of time.
Here are 5 Important Points to consider in Building Your Home in Bacolod.Basa lang di!
1. Set Your Budget

Architect Feature: Green School in Bali, Indonesia
April 19, 2011 Leave a comment
Filipino architects wear many hats in many building design and construction projects. They may create the design, make the drafts, select the materials and supervise the entire work process. For other projects, an architect’s role may be limited to drafting the blueprints.
You can go for some cost-saving options but they don’t always work out for everyone. Here are the alternatives and their advantages and disadvantages:
1. Buying a Stock Building Plan
Architects and home designers create stock building plans for mass marketing through magazines, catalogs and websites.
Advantages: It’s easy to find stock plans for houses in a wide variety of sizes, styles and budgets. If you can find stock blueprints similar to what you envision your dream house to be, you can hire an architect to make necessary alterations. This will help save money because changing an existing plan is always less expensive than designing a house from scratch. Read more of this post

The first inhabitants of the Philippine Islands arrived between 300 and 200 B.C. They were of Malay-Polynesian descent. The people lived in groups of 30-100 families in societies known as barangay. They were mainly an agricultural and fishing people, others were nomadic. Trade with mainland asia, especially China, was established by these people. In the 14th century, Islam was introduced. Then in 1521, Magellan stumbled upon the islands in his attempt to circumnavigate the world. This was the introduction of the Philippines to the western world. What followed was 300 years of rule by the Spanish and the acceptance of Roman-Catholicism, Read more of this post

After the successful workshop in 2012, “Designing Architecture – Global, Green and Filipino”, Architect Ian Jay Bantilan of Bacolod City is presenting a Workshop that will enable designers to find the inspiration to finally bring the Project home. The Artists or the Architect’s philosophy acts as a frame that strengthens his work so that it stands out among the myriad art and messages that fight for dominance in our minds today.
As artists, we naturally immerse ourselves in shallow water and miss out the depth of meaning that our world holds. This Workshop is not just for architects, it can be useful to artists, interior designers to draw inspiration from.
If you are interested feel free to contact the United Architects of the Philippines – Student Auxilliary (La Consolacion College) 19122408616 or 433-3476. The Workshop will be held in La Consolacion College – Bacolod City on September 19, 2013. If you are an outsider wanting to participate in this event, please be sure to let us know before the time.

They have helped reshape cities and localities,
and in doing so,
have been instrumental in the evolution of a people’s culture.
We have been at the forefront in the development of a society, albeit unbeknownst.
Thus, not many people realize the importance of an Architect.
We are more than designing one’s residence.
We take part in building the nation.
We take part in building the future.
The Architect’s role has always been downplayed.
Some put minimal value in what we do.
But ours is a call to serve,
Whether other people realize the importance of our profession, it is clear that our service have a great impact in a thousand other people who will unknowingly live inside, around our masterpieces. This is what we are, what we do, and how we impact the world around us.
Architects are Guardians of the Environment.
Architects are City Changers.

The history and culture of the Philippines are reflected in its architectural heritage, in the dwellings of its various peoples, in churches and mosques, and in the buildings that have risen in response to the demands of progress and the aspirations of the people.
Architecture in the Philippines today is the result of a natural growth enriched with the absorption of varied influences. It developed from the Pre-Colonial influences of our Malay neighbor, continuing on to the Spanish Colonial Period, the American Commonwealth Period, to Modern Contemporary times. As a result, the Philippines has become an architectural melting pot- uniquely Filipino with a tinge of the Western.
Leandro Locsin, National Artist for architecture, once said, that Philippine Architecture is an elusive thing, because while it makes full use of modern technology, it is a residue of the different overlays of foreign influences left in the Philippines over the centuries: the early Malay culture and vestiges of earlier Hindu influences, the more than 300 years of Spanish domination, the almost 50 years of American rule, the Arab and Chinese influences through commerce and trade over the centuries. What resulted may have been a hybrid, a totally new configuration which may include a remembrance of the past, but transformed or framed in terms of its significance today. Read more of this post
