House on the Hill

Ok, so my mentor asked me to design a house as an exercise..it will be the reflection of my soul and passion for Architecture..and the client is nobody else but myself.
At first I was hesitant, I didn't know what to do because I thought I didn't know what I wanted. He gave me design parameters to help me with the project. 
The House Floor Area should not be more than 160sqm. 80sqm for ground floor and another 80sqm up. Location of the property will be on a flat area in the middle of a hill on an island, 360sqm to be exact.
This is a three bedroom house with two and a half baths and a Covered 2-car garage with storage above or a habitable room for maids. Provided with a separate multipurpose room on an isolated area on the property, that can be used for meditation or office which provides a panoramic view of the sea and a long infinity pool.. 
Here's the facade of my house on the hill

So far I'm pleased with the plan and the design. I really wanted a modern house on the mountains with an infinity pool and a panoramic view. This exercise has inspired me a lot. It was done with passion and i used my heart.

Balinese House for a Client

So, I went on a short vacation in Manila, and during my stay I had a developer-owner client who asked me to design a house that they will be selling and will serve as a model house for the community.
The theme of the community is Balinese.. and I made some options..
Here's the initial design i presented to my client..

But after some comments with the client the design was adjusted and I was asked for three color options..and here they are:

This first two images are the final ones..the other three are the other color options..

This house will be built in Tagaytay City, Philippines. Please feel free to make some comments. Thanks for viewing!
