Located in Calatagan, Batangas, Philippines, PK House was designed as a weekend tranquility home. The site is located about 3 hours via road from Metro Manila and features a hilltop topography. The property is bounded by vantage views of Balayan Bay to the East and South views, with a mountain range to the West. Having a lot area of 3 hectares, PK stands in the center of the lot as a pivot for future developments, and to benefit its peak vantage of surrounding views.
Designed as a three level Structure with a roofdeck, it was built in steel framing to streamline the construction process.

These cantilevers functions as a climatic response in protecting the interior spaces from extreme tropical heat and harsh weather conditions. The overall composition of components of PK House were orchestrated to achieve a porous open spaces with the full address of climate of site.
