Binaliw, Cebu City
one garden residences
This residential project was conceptualized as a retirement village for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW’s). It was the client’s explicit request that units within this development should be financially accessible for its given target market, but at the same time embody the appearance and spatial quality of higher-end residences.
The architectural solution was to create a set of interlocking residential blocks that permitted a garden-apartment layout per unit. The project was therefore conceptualized with a lego-like arrangement of residential modules that resulted in a playful façade.
Each unit was planned and designed with the goal in mind of curating the surrounding forestry, in a sense extending the exterior greenery into the interior, allowing even the smallest units to spatially feel more open and expansive.
