Project: C House

Program: A weekend residence for a Real Estate Developer

Concept: 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.

Location: Punta Fuego, Batangas, Philippines

Archipelago, an energetic team of creative individuals who seek out projects that aim to express each client’s unique identity. Using fresh design ideas, innovative materials, and a global perspective, we build cutting edge, intelligent solutions. Chut Cuerva and Tisha de Borja are the principal founders of Archipelago.
