Philippines-based studio Archipelago Design Works has completed the C House project, a week-end beach retreat designed by Chut Cuerva and Tisha de Borja, both principals of Archipelago, for Cuerva’s family.
Completed in 2007, this four bedroom contemporary home is located in Punta Fuego, an exclusive residential resort in the province of Batangas, Philippines.
C House by Archipelago Design Works:
“This project is Archipelago’s first built work of architecture. The client’s brief was to create a modern, serene and luxurious oasis to retreat from the city.
An unassuming streetfront unfolds and expands into a cavernous interior. Upon entering, a corridor precisely frames a view of a nearby island.
A stair volume runs continuously from the street down into the water. Living spaces are treated as one large room which leads out to a veranda, deck and pool, all with stunning views of Nasugbu Bay and the South China Sea.”
