Torogan House

BASE, in partnership with the Hineleban Foundation, designed the “Torogan” inspired Cement-Bamboo Frame house that is not just sustainable and disaster-resilient but has taken into account the community’s geographical and cultural needs.

This project, composed of 2 standard model houses and the Torogan house features the Cement-Bamboo Frame Technology (CBFT) developed by Base with vernacular designs. With more than just appealing designs, these houses are disaster-resilient, sustainable, and environment-friendly.

The Torogan, which translates to “resting place”, is a type of home built by the Maranaos using native materials. Together with BASE’s architects and engineers, a community in Lanao created a new housing design incorporating the Torogan and the CBFT.


Total Number of Model Houses: Two (2) standard model houses; One (1) Torogan House
Area: Hineleban Farm, Bukidnon
Housing Type: Single-Storey; Two-Storey (Single detached)
