THE HACIENDA COMMUNITY HOUSE in Santa Rosa, Philippines by Jorge Yulo Architects & Associates

Saturday, August 1st, 2015

Article source: Jorge Yulo Architects & Associates

The site sits on a parcel of land that was part of a once contiguous seven thousand hectare sugar estate consolidated during the Spanish occupation. Because of its vicinity to the nucleus city and vulnerability development, the estate’s land area has been preyed upon by Manila’s urban overspill. The Hacienda is a community that strives to preserve the estate’s history by achieving a similar sense of place, that allows systematic cycles from the past to continue while introducing new assimilative cycles.
