Transcript of Coconut Palace
The Coconut Palace, also known as Tahanang Pilipino or Filipino Home, The Coconut Palace is located in Manila, Philippines, idea of the former first lady Imelda Marcos. The First Lady Imelda Marcos want to build a palace for the country and for the Pope John Paul the Second , Pope John Paul the Second will visiting our country during 1981 and Imelda’s Husband President Marcos. It is the time of the Marcoses, The Marcos are man power and political power. Marcos change the country ( Philippines). He establish the Martial Law where the time of the breakdown of the Philippines.
The Coconut Palace, is Built in 1978, it is made of several types of Philippine Materials, hardwood, Coconut shells, and a specially engineered coconut lumber apparently known as Imelda Madera, I think this is a kind of cut of Coconut.
The Coconut Palace or The Tahanang Philipino is The Guest house of the Marcos, and when the end of the Marcos, the Coconut Palace is turn over to the Philippines. The government take care of it. and it is open to the public for special proposes.
The Architect of the Coconut Palace or the Tahanang Pilipino is Architect Francisco Mañosa, Architect Francisco Mañosa clamed that the Tahanang Pilipino is a showpiece on the versatility of the coconut and its viavility as an export, and it was planned long before the Pope will visit the country.
Every Piece in this Palace has its own meaning and tradition. The Palace is shaped like an octagon to represent the coconut serving. while the roof is shaped like a traditional hat of the Philippines. mainly the farmer use it. the Filipino salakot or hat. their is some of its highlights are the 101 coconut shell chandelier. and the dining table made of 40, 000 ( forty thousand) tiny pieces of inlaid coconut shells, and more.
why it is called the Coconut Palace, as a citizen of the Philippines, coconut is widely known in our country. coconut give us food, money, and everything, That’s why Coconut Palace is made of Coconut. and Coconut is known as Tree of life. from the coconut’s roots to its trunk, bark, fruit, flower and shell. the Palace is design , form and ornamentation echo these elements.
The coconut Palace manila is named because the architectural structure is made of 70 percent treated coconut lumber. Most of the materials in the Palace are native materials.
The Coconut Palace is located along Roxas Boulevard in manila and next to the Cultural Center of the Philippines Complex, Cultural Center of the Philippines is one of the project and plan of The First Lady Imelda Marcos.
The Coconut Palace is an interesting work of Architecture, a wonderful work and piece of art that sublimed the feeling of the Pilipino People. Even the country is under the Martial law. They manage to built a Palace that showcase the tradition and culture of our country. and it is also a unique art of the coconut as the ultimate Tree of life and it is also symbolize the hard working of the people in the Philippines.
OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY
• To be able to research about evaluation of
building with tropical design features, to be familiarize to those feature that is related to tropical design properties and to know how this features can be applied to design a tropical climate structure which gives a comfortable living for the users.
Project Narrative Summary
Today The Coconut Palace or the Tahanang Pilipino is already open to the public, tour,
wedding, reception and others. Many famous people want to be the Coconut palace to be their Reception when two Pilipino got married because the Palace is to romantic and peaceful. it is natural and the feeling of being Pilipino is in their.
For me, as a student of architecture. this Architectural structure is one of the example of
home made architectural piece. the structure you can see and any angle you can see the structure itself symbolize that is Philippines and it is also symbolize the creativeness of the Pilipino people. every piece of materials in the Coconut Palace gives you a big important.
Architect Francisco Mañosa is one of the founder of the architecture in Philippines. He is
one of the architect who start to call the attention of the Philippines people to be part of the organization to rebuild and make the country presentable and beautiful. Arch. Francisco Mañosa is the Favorite Architect of The First Lady Imelda Marcos when the Time and rule of the Marcos.
I think when Arch. Francisco Mañosa started to think and study the upcoming project
which is the Coconut Palace or The Tahanang Pilipino. I think Arch. Francisco Mañosa use the Country as his inspiration and concept of his design. that reflect to the Pilipino people.
I believe that their is a Philippine architecture in our country. some architect they don’t
believe that their is a Philippine architecture. you can see, that the Coconut Palace or known as the Tahanang Pilipino is already a piece and one structure that can prove to us that their is a Philippine architecture. and the next example or fruit of the Philippine Architecture is the new generation of the new architects in the Philippines.

Design windows tall and wide this helps to let
out the hot air as well as to let in the breeze. This will also reduce the needs for using lights during the day. Windows are louver type which maximise natural ventilation by allowing airflow through the entire window area.An additional advantage of jalousie windows is the ability to leave them at least partway open in most heavy rains, maintaining desirable ventilation whether a sun shower or prolonged tropical storm. On the downside, traditional style louvered windows offer poor overall resistance to water penetration and drafts.
Application of water feature in coconut palace
helps to provide a cooling comfort for the users and also the proper location of landscapes which protect from direct sunlight and utilizes this features.
Slutch is the period of transitory breeze
which can cause a circulation flow of air through the window.
Proper location of lighting fixture for
the reflection of lights through the engineered
coconut lumber flooring.
APPLICATION OF DOUBLE ROOF
WHICH CAUSING CHIMNEY EFFECT
Stack Effect/ Chimney effect
is the movement of air into and out of buildings, chimneys, flue gas stacks, or other containers, resulting from air buoyancy. Buoyancy occurs due to a difference in indoor-to-outdoor air density resulting from temperature and moisture differences. The result is either a positive or negative buoyancy force. The greater the thermal difference and the height of the structure, the greater the buoyancy force, and thus the stack effect. The stack effect is also referred to as the "chimney effect", and it helps drive natural ventilation, infiltration, and fires.
As you can see in this picture coconut palace
Have a stack effect on the roof system which has the tendency of air or gas in a shaft or other vertical space to rise when heated, creating a draft that draws in cooler air or gas from below.
APPLICATION OF THERMAL INSULATION
to maintain acceptable temperatures in building (by heating and cooling) uses a large proportion of global energy consumption.also reduce noise and vibration, both coming from the outside and from other rooms inside a building, thus producing a more comfortable environment.
THE ORIENTATION OF PLAN IS DIAGONAL
THROUGH THE NORTH WHICH IS FACING THE PREVAILING BREEZE TO MAXIMIZE
THE AIR IN CONDITIONING MANY NIGHTS. AND ALSO SOME OF PARTS OF SPACES ARE OPEN PLAN WHICH ALLOWS THE AIR TO CIRCULATE BETTER THROUGHOUT THE HOUSE.
PROPER LOCATION OF LIGHTINGS AND ALSO THE REFLECTION OF THE LIGHT FROM CEILING TO FLOOR WHEREIN THE LIGHT RAYS BOUNCE BACK BECAUSE OF THE MATERIALS USED.
A sea breeze or onshore breeze is a gentle wind that develops over bodies of water near land due to differences in air pressure created by their different heat capacity. It is a common occurrence along coasts during the morning as solar radiation heats the land more quickly than the water. Meaning the wind from the sea directed toward the land. Then it has a daytime heating which land warms more rapidly than water.
A land breeze or offshore breeze is the reverse effect, caused by land cooling more quickly than water in the evening. The sea breeze dissipates and the wind flows from the land towards the sea. Both are important factors in coastal regions' prevailing winds. Meaning the wind from land directed to sea and also it has night time cooling which land cools faster than water.
Case Study : Coconut PaLace
Therefore we conclude that coconut palace is
a tropical based structure. The merials being used
are based from natural materials that gives cooling
effect inside the house and the structure was oriented properly to have a well developed atmosphere.
Therefore we conclude

It should have a sustainable development that well
improves the total quality of life now and in the future.because even if it was made from natural materials the structure is opulent compared to the level of philippines economic. Since in tropical design we considered the sustainability of the structure to the user.
