Asador Alfonso is 4-villa residence and private dining space  nestled amidst a 9.4-hectare farm and leisure development. Inspired  by the majestic presence of most iconic and active volcanoes of the  Philippines- the Taal Volcano. Like a dormant giant awakening, this  structure rises from the earth, its design rooted in the local context it  inhabits fostering a unique narrative of place making. Promoting ethos  of health and well-being through nature, it offers a retreat from city life.  

As you approach, the architecture appears to integrate with the  terrain, its cavernous spaces inviting exploration and contemplation. In  the second floor, you are offered with an expansive horizontal view of  the farmland. On the lofted third floor, a cantilevered lounge juts out  with a triangulated framing of the sky, the pavilion and the chicken coop.  As you ascend to the fourth floor, intimacy embraces you, with private  spaces framing both farmland and sunsets. The view evolves with each  level, culminating in different perspective of the ever-changing sky. At  sunset, the building transforms, harmoniously merging with nature,  especially by the sunken bonfire, creating a magical experience that  captivates the soul. Nearby, a shimmering pool reflects the illuminated  facade of the building, casting a captivating glow that mesmerizes the  senses like a lantern at night.  Striking architectural elements, like the gravity-defying illusion  of the folding concrete deep cantilevers, serving not only as a design  statement but also as effective sun shades, enhancing comfort. Private  villas encircle the landscape, framing serene nature views comparable  to still-life paintings scenarios. In the private dining spaces, gastronomic  journey is elevated by the fusion of bold architecture and fertile farmland.  

Inspired by the raw beauty of lava rock formations, this unique structure embodies the harmonious fusion of nature and manmade. Asador Alfonso stands as a stimulus of the locale, poised to leave an indelible mark on its surroundings and ignite a new era of growth and vitality. This is more than just a building; it is a living, breathing symbol of the enduring bond between humanity and the land. In its embrace, visitors find a sense of well-being, inspiration, and a renewed appreciation for agricultural life.
