For now and for the next few days maybe. 😉
By the way, took some of these pics during the monthly general assembly (what a day to be out of the office).
Hon. Nestor D. Archival Sr.’s 7000 square meter property in Talamban, Cebu City is a sight to behold. Made from 90% recycled materials – from tables to chairs to lamps including used water – it holds interests for a mere observer or even a scientist. Also vying for the viewer’s attention are the colorful murals.
Beautifully native. Lampshade with base made from hard coconut shells.
Ingenious. Another lampshade but with base made from recycled coke cans.
Not for breakfast. Artsy egg lampshade.
I love colors. Framed painting on the second floor of the two-storey house.
Sunshiny day. Saving electricity in style with a decorated skylight.
Lux Comfort. Colored bottoms from recycled green bottles give this bathroom spunk. (Nah. I’m sure you wouldn’t have guessed this is a bathroom if I didn’t tell you. Haha.)
I love noodles. Improvised chandelier made from green glass bottles and Nissin Cup Noodle cups.
Of bricks and squares. What better way to optimize air conditioning than to open the walls as squares in various sizes (with screens, of course).
Bibliotheque. No bibliophile like me can resist the lure of this mini library. Hmm. My room needs a makeover. Haha
FYI: This Cebu City councilor from the North District is a known environmentalist and an advocate of “green projects” like vermi-composting. Know more about him and his advocacy: http://www.houseclosetonature.com.
The Administrative Bldg. for the South Road Properties definitely has some magic to it if you just know where to look.
Of course, tyrannical being that I am, I “influenced” (grrr…okay, coerced it is..:P) the team to don shirts with my design. Hahaha
