C House Archipelago Design Works

This project is Archipelago’s first built work of architecture. The client’s brief was to create a modern, serene and luxurious oasis to retreat from the city.
An unassuming streetfront unfolds and expands into a cavernous interior. Upon entering, a corridor precisely frames a view of a nearby island.
A stair volume runs continuously from the street down into the water. Living spaces are treated as one large room which leads out to a veranda, deck and pool, all with stunning views of Nasugbu Bay and the South China Sea.
