Amoa, which means “our own” in the local dialect and sprawled across 60 hectares of rolling terrain and spectacular views, aims to give a feeling of daily aspiration and real sense of ownership within each homeowner by including them in design process of their homes and ensuring that they feel a strong sense of community in every opportunity.

The architecture is inspired by traditional Filipino homes fused with principles modernism. Ventanillas (ventilation slats seen in traditional homes) that are interpreted as brise-soliels (sun screens)  not only serve to protect the interiors from the heat and give a feeling of physical and visual security, but also become the source of customization which leads to a high sense of ownership.

Porches are designed to be as spacious as bedrooms to ensure comfort and usability. This hopes to create higher chances of interaction with neighbors, creating strong relational connections with the neighborhood and to the greater community.

More to Discover, More to Enjoy, More to Love. At Amoa, we believe that everything becomes more meaningful in a home you can truly call your own. Amoa, where life means more.
