Sustainability and sustainable house design
Striving toward a sustainable house design in Siargao island
Our goal was to design and build the most environmentally and eco friendly house possible. After much research we found the perfect architect for our project. Together we carefully considered the specific site and materials available to us on the island, they challenged our thinking and assessed the necessary balance and trade-offs to be made, aiming for the most sustainable options while always striving to maintain our design vision.
We continue to work exclusively with local free trade businesses, seek to minimise our environmental impact and protect natural resources. Protecting Siargao Island, Siargao people and Siargao ocean has to be our ongoing mission.
We were warmly welcomed to the island all those years ago. Our great respect for the local people, their skills and trades and our desire to protect the natural environment, including the Ocean, binds us together on this small island paradise.
We encourage all our guests to share our mission and help preserve it for the next generation.
