When I was young, I was fascinated by different textures of colored glass. Our family collected the wine bottles and made them as water containers. They come in dark green and brown color. But as I grew I recognized that glass played an important role in our lives. Read more of this post

What are Curtain Walls/ Glass Facade?

Curtain Walls are architecture elements of standard panels that cover the exterior of the building. It comes from the idea fusion of a whole “wall” made of glass instead of windows penetrating into the walls. Any modern commercial building will not be able to escape the curtain wall glass or architecture glass facade into its design if it wants to be relevant as a building.

Why Hiring an Architect Saves You Money


Archian Design Architect Studio Bacolod City

If you’ve been working hard all these years as an OFW, building your dream house is one of the best investments you can make. An OFW’s dream house represents the fruits of your labor and the sacrifices you’ve endured during your time spent away from your family.

So should you hire just anyone to design and build your home?

A well-conceived residential construction project can be built more efficiently and economically. Let’s face it, building your home in the Philippines is not going to be a walk in the park. House design and construction is a long process that can be messy and disruptive if not done the right way.

That is why hiring a Filipino architect is a wise investment for your money and not an added cost when you design and build your home.

Visit to contact Arch. Ian Jay Bantilan

First of all, architects plan the project with you. As you get more ideas on how you want your house to look, your architect can make changes on paper much less expensively than when construction is already underway without an architect’s supervision.

An architect’s thorough drawings and specifications make it easier for contractors in the Philippines to accurately price and build your home. He/she regularly visits the construction site on your behalf to ensure that your project is being built according to your specifications.

Architects work with your budget and help you select the appropriate materials and workmanship at a fair price. Choosing materials and finishes that are beautiful and durable at the same time will help you save on frequent maintenance and replacement costs. A good architect always stays updated in the latest advancements in roofing, brick work, floor tiling, paint finishes, etc.

And, if you decide to sell your residence in the future, a sturdy and well-designed house has a higher resale value.

The house is perfect for social gatherings and parties because of its comfortable verandas and open spaces in between rooms. The open layout also takes advantage of trade winds that blow in from the sea, providing natural ventilation and passive cooling. Rain water is harvested from the roof for re-use. With its natural finishes, organic aesthetics and richness of details, the house is in harmony with the exuberant Brazilian nature.
