Making a house feel “lived in” can often be a daunting task, especially if the space can be easily taken over by the look of generic modernity. But for homeowner Jimmy and architect Angelo “Gelo” Mañosa of A. Mañosa + Architects, the challenge was how to incorporate a distinct Filipino identity into the space as well as how to bring the outdoors in.

The result is an intelligently-designed space that takes advantage of the natural view corridors, garden backdrops, good ventilation, and natural light, while displaying a penchant for homegrown materials and a respect for traditional Filipino architectural details.
