Recently, a design by Bohol-based firm Zamora Architects went viral on Facebook for its unique take on tiny house living. They gave the trend a Filipino spin, proposing a 35sqm modern bahay kubo with a clean, minimalist interior.

The architect behind the design shares that they're also into tiny house living, and they created it in the hopes of building it for themself. "I'm still in the works of studying which materials would best fit it in actual contruction, what you see in the pictures are just my architectural renderings," they write. In another post, they mention that they're still working on the design, and are open to suggestion on how to improve the building.
