While this living area is found indoors, the space feels like it is connected to nature because of a picture window that provides a great view of the garden. It is furnished with old gallinera chairs made with polished wood that lends warmth to the space. Floors, ceilings and other details are made with kawayan tinik or Bambusa blumeana Schultes, a type of spiny bamboo native to the Philippines.
