PHINMA Properties recently launched a housing design competition together with De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, School of Environment and Design (DLS-CSB-SED), empowering architecture students to unleash their creativity and develop innovative solutions for the evolving lifestyle of Filipino families. The competition, a curricular collaboration with Benilde’s Architecture program involving its Housing classes, challenged young visionaries to conceptualize and visualize constructible housing ideas that cater to the needs of middle-class families. The participants were tasked with creating schematic proposals for three housing typologies: 50-square-meter (sq.m.) lot townhouses, 80-sq.m. single attached homes, and 125- sq.m. single attached homes. PHINMA Properties pledged a substantial cash prize to reward the nine winners whose visionary ideas will be deemed as exemplifying the essence of innovation and sustainability.
