â€œ What can be done with one substance must never be done with another. No two materials are alike. No two sites on earth are alike. No two buildings have the same purpose, the site, the material determine the shape. Nothing can be reasonable or beautiful unless itâ€™s made by one central idea, and the idea sets every detail. A building is alive, like a man. Itâ€™s integrity is to follow its own truth, itâ€™s one single theme, and to serve its own single purpose. A man doesnâ€™t borrow pieces of its body. A building doesnâ€™t borrow hunks of its soul. Its maker gives it the soul and every wall, window and stairway to express it. â€<br><br>This 1800+ square foot modern vacation home rests on a unusual-shaped lot inside a private community in Tagaytay City, Philippines. The glass, steel and concrete composition separates itself with tradition and the long-established to provide an optimized multifunctional home.
