Filipinos cherish their strong family ties, and a vacation home offers the perfect setting to nurture these bonds through shared experiences in a beautiful and familiar environment. Imagine the joy of family reunions, holidays, and special occasions happening in a single space, creating cherished memories that last a lifetime.

Modern designs often incorporate a metal roof for a vacation house, and the HL Cabana is a prime example. This stunning villa addition in Calatagan, designed by Adrian Alonso and Pearl Robles Alonso of 8×8 Design Studio, was inspired by the desire for a dedicated space that would bring families together. The project was born from the client’s need for an expanded guest area, not only to accommodate additional visitors but also to provide a comfortable and private space for their aging parents.

To meet these multi-generational needs, 8×8 Design Studio created a warm and welcoming cabana that complements the main house’s existing guest room. Understanding the importance of creating a space that endures, they partnered with Metalink for the villa’s roofing.

What began as a renovation project evolved into an overhaul to create a harmonious extension of the main house. Architects Adrian Alonso and Pearl Robles-Alonso aimed to craft a steel and glass masterpiece that would seamlessly integrate with the natural surroundings. Drawing inspiration from the main house designed by Architect Mañosa, they created a straightforward, yet warm and welcoming structure that generously offers ample space.

For its roof, they wanted it to adapt to the profile of the main house. Achieving the perfect neutral color palette for roofing traditionally involved a post-construction painting step. This added an extra layer to the design and construction process. However, 8×8 Design Studio discovered a more efficient solution with the different finishes provided by Metalink.

“We actually really like the color palettes that [are] available from Metalink,” stated architect Adrian Alonso.

Metalink’s extensive range of finishes eliminated the need for additional painting, streamlining the design and construction process.

“It’s pre-painted now to the shades that work well with our projects”, he added. This not only saved time but ensured a flawless aesthetic integration from the outset.

For this project, the architects selected Metalink’s FlexSeam with Tektura Finish, This finish trademarked by Metalink features a matte wrinkled texture in a range of sophisticated gray tones that seamlessly complement modern design aesthetics:

  • Anthracite Dark Gray
  • Bromo Medium Gray
  • Efesso Light Gray
  • Piombo Basalt Gray
  • Silk Gray

This extensive color palette gives architects and designers the range and flexibility to achieve the perfect balance of hue and texture, allowing them to tailor the roofing to their specific vision.
