up south

Photos by: Buck Sia

This is a design proposal for UP south , a cebu based company, wanting to try the manila market. We used again the folding design model, using timber as a main material to connote the tropics of cebu. The folds hide the existing mezzanine of the rentable space. This feature consolidates to from a nook and a railing until turning into seating at the ground floor.
