The ecoKubo blogpost has been the most popular post after the Flood Calamity Tips and the Filipino is Worth Greening For so far. I, thus, looked for more examples of green house designs I have encountered, that I can show you. The Filipino is now getting interested in green architecture or green building. Wow!
I remember Architect James Pomeroy's presentation at the last Manilacon's Green Forum I attended.
Arch. Pomeroy showed their (Broadway Malyan's) project for Sime Darby. It is a project that was meant to spur development of more projects like it: eco-friendly! It's designed to be a zero-carbon house.
Note: All images owned by Broadway Malyan
ample sized windows to let in light
orientation set for optimal use available sunlight
note the gap under the house: it's on stilts to let in cool air
solar panels for off grid, renewable power source
it uses modular technology to hasten speed of construction and thus save on building costs
the modules are designed for easy expansion: just add another module!
rain water is harvested
gray water is recycled
I hope more Filipino architects can share their "green architecture" designs here in this learning forum. It's important that the laymen, the end-users, the market, the future residents or homeowners, get educated on the benefits of having a green home.
