Lambunao Municipality Office Design Concept considering culture and History – Iloilo Province

IV. Design Concepts of the Sustainable Environment / Green Building Solution

Building Insulation, Green Wall and Banog Feather
The building imitates the feather structure of the Banog bird. The building envelope is composed of layered glass panels that allow the air through the gaps, with panels that mechanically open on hot days and close during heavy rain. The glass and green wall form the “feather” that allow breezes in while filtering dust, shade from excessive sun-heat, and protect from rain. Each green panel are replaceable and reachable from the office area. Local rain can water the plants while excess water is collected.

I. Name of Design: Pagtukib sang Kinaiya sang Lambunaonon (Rediscovery of the Mysterious Ways of the “Lambunao” Community)

The concept for the Municipal Development is a 3-pronged strategy. The first part is introducing the rich heritage of the mysterious town of Lambunao rather than a municipality in the province of Iloilo. The strategy is to uncover Lambunao as an exotic paradise; a civilization trapped in the forest with a colorful past evoking folklore similar to the tropical Mayan civilization. This involves greening the plaza and surrounding areas while promoting a new identity of the town.

Curtain Glass Modern Design

Curtain Glass Modern Design

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.

How an Architect can Protect you from Loss on a Building Construction

Why an Architect’s role is Crucial to any Building Construction

Until today, very many people are confused about engineers and architects. They understand in general about engineers but, for most part, the profession of Architects sounds like sorcery or magic. When people build their apartment, they want their property to have the best investment value. (Other than emotional significance) This is measured by its ability to generate income and have maximum resale potential. At the other end of the builder’s concern is what is the best way to cut on construction cost?

Architect- Magician or Sorcerer

Architects: Sorcery or Magic?

In a world of increasing complexity, architects in the past are tasked around aesthetics – beautifying the simple structures, adding color and light to interiors and adding details such as railings and moldings. But as buildings become more complex, the role of architects become more and more important. They are visionaries that don’t just build what is possible (engineers) but they visualize what could be.

1. Save money and lives.
Through training, architects are trained to anticipate possible conflict on the plan. A house with a simple use need less analysis between bedrooms and living room. As more functions are intertwined at an apartment or high school building, it is valuable to see logically and analytically which function should be beside each other. Imagine the wrong position of a Clinic very far from the sports area – it could for years save lives. Read more of this post
