PRLog - Jul. 17, 2014 - MAKATI CITY, Philippines -- A Filipino-Italian company advocating green architecture has proposed the construction of houses and buildings that can quickly adapt and withstand typhoons, floods and other calamities due to climate change.

Italian architect Romolo V.  Nati, Executive Chairman and CEO of Italpinas Euroasian Design and Eco-Development Corporation (ITPI), has put forward his sustainable designs to encourage Filipinos to build typhoon and flood-resistant shelters in the aftermath of destructive storms in the country.

“Our role model is nature and its ability to solve problems and adapt to changes,” Nati said of his designs.

Atty. Jojo Leviste, President of ITPI and Nati’s partner, stressed the need for Philippine shelters to adapt to the storms and floods that has become part of the daily lives of Filipinos.

“We need to anticipate extreme weather conditions, as if they were not isolated cases, but the norm. In order to do so, we must approach developments under a different scale of values and principles, which will be reflected in our design and real estate developments,” Leviste said.

Leviste also emphasized that “location is key, it is not enough to build great things – we must always remember the dialogue between the building itself and its particular location.”

According to Leviste, ITPI has already proven its capacity to design and build climate change-adaptable structures after its pioneer development project Primavera Residences, a mixed-use green building comprising of two towers with 10 storeys each, withstood the deadly effect of Tropical Storm Sendong that flattened a great part of Cagayan de Oro in December 2012.

ITPI’s projects and designs also feature an “integration of renewable energy production and architecture.”

“The sun is the basis of all life on earth; it’s only natural to use its energy. To do this, we integrate photovoltaic solar panels in our architecture, turning them into features that beautify our buildings. We use them the same way we use cement and bricks – they are the parte integrante (essential part) of our architecture,” Nati said.

Nati, who took architecture and graduated “summa cum laude” at La Sapienza University in Rome, has worked for numerous architectural and engineering firms in Italy and in the United States. He’s a multi-awarded architect, receiving numerous awards from international green architecture design competitions in Italy and other parts of the world.

Primavera Residences is ITPI’s initial green project located in Uptown Cagayan de Oro. It provides residential, commercial and office spaces for purchase and rent. The property recently won a Best Mixed-Use Development in the Philippines award at the 2014-2015 Asia Pacific Property Awards held in Kuala Lumpur.
