Metamodern Architecture is for the NOW
Meta-modern architecture firm for new house design, commercial property, hotels, museum, and shopping malls designs.
Our Design Philosophy
The new architecture encourages collaborative stories. We look to what compels people and what motivates their every day to get to where they want to be. And we shape these hopes and dreams into new forms inspired by flexible architectural programs, culture of technologies, and interdisciplinary exchanges.
The postmodern era based solely on functional boxed spaces is quite limiting. Architecture for us now is about establishing lives. We want to secure aspirations that can grow and bridge for future generations. And with such, we value legacies that are built upon the confidence in one’s architect and the opportunities for embracing uniqueness.

We provide complete architectural design, engineering solutions, BIM and 3D visualizations, and construction service recommendations for improvements and new builds.

Isuzu Outlet Store
At the center of each of ISUZU’s LCV is the unique ability to address challenging terrains. The proposed outlet store design initiation takes inspiration from the power and peak associated with Isuzu designed to overcome any of these challenging terrains. Our proposition for Isuzu Outlet Standardization Program is a break from the market’s conventional box-type structure into a unique and recognizable symbolic architectural form. Something to represent this rise but most of all, to symbolize simple shelters. The outlet stores would be a transport haven for the visionaries, market achievers, and business owners on moving forward and confronting the rough roads of life. The idea is to create a form that invokes that sense of arrival on approach even from a distance. The structure’s origami shape should lend unique visual experiences coming from each varying vantage points. We envision a well-ventilated layout that connects with the outdoors greeneries and generous amount of natural light. Inside would have grand use of digital displays and wall high interactive technologies.

One East Commercial Hub
Two-storey commercial hub architecture design development by Fulgar Architects for retail and neighborhood shop markets rentals in Marikina City, Philippines. Owners wanted to develop their 890 sqm site in Marikina City as a real estate investments and property business venture. On our first arrival to the site, we were immediately inspired by the breezy atmosphere of the place. We proposed to follow the advantageous natural orientation of the property when we organized the spaces and sections into commercial or operational activities. Our goal was to maximize the rentable inventories with as much allowable parking slots as possible. A unique array of structural braced frames were introduced to prop up the character of the building. A common courtyard was then integrated to preserve the existing trees at the rear which will then connect the interior shops with open corridors with as much ventilation and sunlight into the place.

Young, chic, and eclectic by character, the Maron residence is a 3-storey 4-unit townhouse located at Caloocan City. It takes on contemporary rustic design while revitalizing the site’s context. Inspired by the ideas of a tropical house in the Philippines, this townhouse design manifests an impression of light and natural atmosphere. Having sleek lines and colors, and natural materials create a strong but refined appeal of the structure. The dominant use of wood, slate stone and a black & white color scheme integrated with simple geometries create a sense of style to the building.
The balconies and jalousies as its most noticeable feature allow for much-coveted outdoor space connection. The use of full-height jalousie windows maximizes the airflow within the spaces while admitting ambient light deeper into the rooms. In conclusion, this light and airy townhouse design show brilliant use of space with each unit having their own carports, kitchen, dining, living area, a generous master bedroom, two additional bedrooms, as well as four toilets and bathrooms.
