And now, let's take a look on
the Architecture of Mañosa... For Arch’t. Mañosa, “Architecture must be true to itself, its land and its people! For the design of the built environment reflects man’s expression of his way of life, his emotional, philosophical, religious, technological and material values in response to his needs and environmental challenges.” PHILOSOPHY
 Filipinos’ love of open spaces
 Our family ties and communal spirit
 Our respect for family values
 Our rich natural resources and materials
 and our tropical climate The Architecture of Mañosa incorporates: With all of these in its core, he shaped architecture that is truly Filipino and made it known to everyone both nationally and internationally. Taking Filipino culture, climate, and environment into consideration, Arch’t. Mañosa takes the native bahay kubo as the most ideal architectural form in the Philippines. It has wide eaves. It is elevated. It has a tukod window and a pitched roof. And is made out of dried grass and bamboo. All these contribute to making it watertight and well ventilated. And during the Spanish era, the bahay kubo was reincarnated in the bahay na bato. Although it is made out of stone and wood, it retained its predecessors’ inherent form. Together, these two structures have become the templates on which every Mañosa design is based. Knowing the architecture of Mañosa, let’s now take a tour on his famous works.
“You are a Filipino. Accept who you are first, and then embrace it! Look for inspiration in your own culture: Our cultural flavor will manifest once we are comfortable with ourselves. We are citizens of the world, but we are Filipinos first!” An inspiring message from Arch’t. Mañosa to his co-designers.. The Patnubay ng Kalinangan Awardee from Manila Commission of Arts and Culture in 1982... Coconut Palace
CCP Complex, Pasay City  Conceived in 1978, the Coconut Palace reinterpreted the traditional bahay kubo and emphasized the scope of coconut by-products’ building possibilities. Arch. Mañosa’s most famous tribute to Philippine architecture The ornate grand staircase Another highlight or the Palace is the conference room's dining table. It is made of 40,000 tiny pieces of inlaid coconut shells and only has five legs to make room for guests wearing gowns. One of the dining rooms on the second floor. Laminated coconut adorn the bathroom walls. The rooms are named after provinces in the Philippines. This room is named after Zamboanga. The terrace has an outstanding view of the famous Manila Bay Sunset.  At the entrance, carved doors inlaid with a mosaic of coconut shells showcase the range of Filipino artistry Coco-wood shingles cover the double roofs which is inspired by a "salakot" or gourd hat and 122 coconut trunks were inverted to provide structural columns to this three-level mansion. Our national flower, the sampaguita, was meticulously carved on the balustrade of the staircase. The grand chandelier made of coconut shells Pearl Farm Resort
Davao The Kalakbay Award as the “Resort of the Year” given by the Department of Tourism in 1994... Another renowned architecture of Mañosa which transformed the lowly fisherman’s house into a magnificent architecture. Careful planning, creative use of native materials and Mindanao’s rich tribal culture made the design vibrant and distinct. The entry sequence to Pearl Farm Beach Resort begins with the endearing Parola that never fails to capture the visitors’ attention. Its roofs, which resemble a salakot, a traditional Philippine hat, evoke a unique tropical ambiance. Structures are made of bamboo, wood, rope, stone and coral—to blend with the surrounding landscape and crystal-clear waters. Arts and crafts from different ethnic tribes of Mindanao like Yakan, Tausug, Maranao, and Badjao punctuate the interiors of the different
cottages. In 1994, He received the Design Award for Architecture from the United Architects of the Philippines (UAP), the Asia-Pacific Interior Design Award (APIDA) and the UK-based Gallivanter’s Award for Excellence as the “Best Beach Resort Worldwide” for the famous ... Amanpulo (“Peaceful Island”)
Palawan Amanpulo is a private island (known as Pamalican), in the Philippine province of Palawan. The six-star resort in Palawan is contemporary, elegant and understated, but distinctly Filipino. The main clubhouse in the Amanpulo Resort was inspired by the collective forms of a native village. It houses the library, dining facilities, music rooms and bath houses for the pool. There are a total of 40 casitas in the resort which are modeled after the authentic Philippine “Bahay Kubo” with combine pebble wash structures with wood shingle roofs. There is a wooden terrace to each pavilion that extends the living spaces to the outside. The interiors make use of natural wood colors put against simple beige walls that highlight the wood accents. The furnitures inside are all made of local materials and arranged to maintain the quiet atmosphere that the guests look forward to. Included in the master plan of the resort are bars, airstrips, beach clubs, pools, tennis courts, children’s playgrounds plus extension back of the house facilities. It exhibits the country’s rich natural resources in its pebble-washed walls, coconut-shell tables, and rustic Palawan rice and knife baskets. Located on the east side of the island, the Lagoon Club serves as a second Beach Club with similar amenities as the main club house. Amanpulo’s Beach Club features an open-air pavilion and a deck scattered with mattresses and pillows. The Lagoon Club And of course, another one of his famous works, his very own bahay kubo… The Mañosa Residence
Ayala Alabang Village, Manila Inspired by the typical "Bahay Kubo", this house was built with the objective of giving pride to each Filipino who enters the house by elevating what is perceive as the lowly house of the farmer. The pioneering use of indigenous materials developed and modified through current production processes makes this house a permanent structure that will stand for generations yet to come. Mañosa also actively worked with religious structures, renovating and designing numerous churches throughout the Philippines... EDSA Shrine
Ortigas In the post-Marcos era, he designed the monument to people power and the Edsa revolution – the Edsa Shrine with its underground chapel. The EDSA Shrine in Ortigas, for instance, is easily the most familiar of his works in this aspect. Mary Immaculate Parish, Las Pinas Concept: Nature
The church is nestled in nature’s bosom and the surrounding are integrated with the church itself.
Sheltered by an anahaw/cogon combination tent roof. It is basically a suspended roof structure and open at all sides The interiors make novel use of capiz shells in the form of doves in flight in the interior not only illuminating the space but adding a sense of movement that makes this place unique. The unique and memorable San Miguel Building in Ortigas is also mong the institutional landmarks that Mañosa created. San Miguel Building
Ortigas Built in 1976, the corporate headquarters of the San Miguel Corporation were envisioned and built by Mañosa as early as the 70s. It is a climate responsive building that was inspired by the Banaue rice terraces. And off to the historic Mactan Island at the coast of Cebu, another world-renowned resort was established. It is the first of the Shangri-La chain of hotels in the Philippines... Mactan Shangri –La Hotel
Cebu The master plan included the simultaneous development of three contiguous restaurants, a sports and recreation center, a comprehensive landscaping. The 400-room Shangri-la Hotel overlooks a picturesque coastline dotted with swaying coconut trees. The design concept called for a structure nestles in nature. Sloped facades eliminate monumentality while exterior finishes and color schemes blend with tropical backdrop.
