I bought this book because my wife and I are preparing to build a new house in the Philippines and hoped it would provide some design ideas. Unfortunately, most of the homes shown in this book are not uniquely tropical in any way and could be just nice homes anywhere in the world. There are two many immaculate living rooms that look like hoity-toity furniture showrooms. The photography is excellent, though.

Got this book for a friend and had trouble giving it away. It is well photographed and the homes are beautiful. If you enjoy looking at beautiful homes get this book and dream away!

My plan is to build a house made of wood and this book makes you explore other ideas and guides you not only on the structure itself but also great ideas on landscaping, walkways, interior designs and decorations and "plants".

Showcases great homes!
This was truly a feast for my senses. The Filipino elite is a highly sophisticated, well travelled, cosmopolitan, tropical, and casually elegant group who have developed a blended taste and style of their own. This book could be renamed "Tropical Dream Homes of the Philippines Rich and Famous". What is truly visible in this book is the rich diversity and fusion of the different cultures - Chinese, Spanish, Indonesian, Malaysian, and American - creating a Philippine cosmo-Asian blend. I highly recommend this book.
