Contrary to the typical “pigeon-hole” or “cookie-cutter” communities in the country, we proposed a breakthrough in social housing development, wherein homeowners have the freedom to express their persona by allowing them to specify a color for their house that they can relate with, giving them a sense of identity and ownership. Through contemporary architecture and an aspirational aesthetic, a sense of pride is instilled in the homeowners. All of these characteristics emanate from architectural frames of different colors that shift position in an alternating manner, achieving a festive character that is very Filipino in nature.
