Entry Description

Rombohan in the Ilonggo dialect means “a place to gather, to bring family and friends together for a meal and celebration.

Coming from a large and very close-knit family, it was appropriate for our clients to build this “Rombohan” to accommodate their growing family. This Rombohan is an addition that became an extension of their old houses and was connected by the surrounding gardens.

Being a typical large Filipino family who loves to gather around food, whether to eat, cook or entertain, the Gonzagas needed a place to make this all happen.

The Lighting Design for this gathering place was very straightforward – to put light where needed and highlight the essential architectural features of the space. We wanted the area to feel inclusive, homey, and cozy simultaneously.

With all the festivities and highly anticipated family reunions, the lighting of Rombohan has dramatically added to making the space a special place for gathering family and friends, making memories, and new family traditions filled with warmth and love for years to come.
