[Inara Trend Design | Home Improvement] — MODERN BAHAY | KUBO | 42 SQM. TWO-STOREY HOUSE WITH INTERIOR DESIGN |MODERN BALAI
MODERN BAHAY | KUBO – Rethinking a modernized version of Philippines cultural symbol Bahay Kubo, a Filipino indigenous traditional dwelling place made of natural green materials like nipa leaves for the roof and split bamboos for the wall and floor. Adapting to the modern setting, this bungalow house is inspired by its distinct Filipino house design character without sacrificing the use of new construction materials.
The modern version of the nipa hut has already taken different designs but living or staying in a modern day bahay kubo while on vacation still offers several advantages.

Many homeowners in the Philippines now opt to build homes that are made almost entirely of concrete but there are still those who want to live or at least occasionally spend time in a bahay kubo, the traditional house that Filipinos used to live in. Bahay kubo style houses, for instance, are popular in beach resorts and as guest houses.
Because it uses indigenous materials such as bamboo, coconut lumber, and rattan, a bahay kubo is also cheaper to build. In rural areas where bamboos abound, getting the bamboo poles to be used as wooden posts only takes cutting the poles.
There are also suppliers who sell bamboo, coconut lumber, sawali (bamboo mats) and other materials used in bahay kubo at a relatively cheap cost. The price of bamboo poles can range between PhP 150 to PhP 300 pesos depending on the size and the location of the supplier. The supplier may also charge for trucking fee to deliver these materials and this could fetch about PHP 1,000.
