Watch a visual series with Prof. Jason Pomeroy: Hijo Finara, Philippines

Prof. Pomeroy shares the design process, from sketch to render, of this luxury condotel in Boracay, Philippines

Inspired by the ‘white bubbles’ of Boracay’s seafoam and the lushness of the site, Hijo Finara’s apartment blocks and guest amenities are clustered around the landscape to optimize views and provide a sense of intimacy with nature. The process balances sustainable restraint with lifestyle delight; and the Eco-Architecture offers individuals their choice of natural setting from the comfort of large terraces that extend as fins from the buildings.
