Barameda’s Farm and Resort
One of their many notable projects is the Barameda’s Farm and Resort, located in San Felipe, Basud. It’s a project designed with relaxation, adventure, and leisure in mind, where guests can experience farm-like living during their stay. It showcases tropical design that celebrates sustainable Filipino architecture, highlighting plenty of natural light and ventilation.
The resort hosts a wide selection of amenities, from gardening areas to amphitheaters where guests can lounge about and feel the rural paradise they’re in. In the center of it all is a multi-purpose hall that is openly designed for natural light and ventilation. Right next to it is a pool area sitting at 192 sq. m. and 108 sq. m. for water-based activities.
The team kept the client’s considerations in mind when designing around several hectares of land, while also introducing the sustainable elements needed to keep a fully-functioning resort. This is why its design saves spaces for sustainable farming where the guests can experience a truly memorable stay in the province.
Another of LJ Architects and Builders’ notable projects is the Nasugbu Resthouse. It contains an open-floor plan framed around a modern tropical rest house design. The building uses wide-open windows, light and airy interiors, plus wood cladding added to achieve this effect.
It also has a central pool accessible from common and private spaces to give an astonishing view of the nearby woods. The building is mostly built with wood materials which give off a tropical statement paired with light-colored finishes.
Tropical design is inherently tied to the natural geography of the building’s surroundings. Thankfully, Ar. Luis has had the opportunity to travel and work on different projects that gave him the experience to balance efficient and aesthetic design with his work. LJ Architects and Builders have developed their brand of service by ensuring a checklist of requirements when drafting their product.
