Considering making traditional Filipino houses such as bahay kubo and bahay na bato as design inspirations for your abode? In this Interior Motives segment, Architect Jason Buensalido shares his insights on how using traditional Filipino houses as pegs for their projects can benefit even the modern Filipino:
1. There’s that homey feel. Buensalido explains that since traditional Filipino houses make use of natural materials, they’re way more cozy.
2. They can unify spaces. Citing “Project Banig” as an example, Buensalido took cues from the banig to create a wall-to-ceiling element that seamlessly unifies the living room with the bedroom. Such peg is perfect for those who have to work with limited space.
3. They give character. While one cannot expect perfect woodwork or stonework, the variations produced by natural materials emit a sense of authenticity, making each area in any home more unique and personal.
