A NIPA hut


The nipa hut also known as bahay kubo, is an indigenous house used in the Philippines. The native house is constructed out of bamboo tied together, with a thatched roof using nipa/anahaw leaves.
Nipa huts were the native houses of the indigenous people of the Philippines before the Spaniards arrived. They are still used today, especially in rural areas. Different architectural designs are present among the different ethno-linguistic groups in the country, although all of them conform to being stilt houses, similar to those found in neighboring countries such as IndonesiaMalaysia,and other countries of Southeast Asia. information source:wikipedia

I loved your photographs especially the one about the NIPA HUT. I learned about a culture I knew nothing about. Thanks

I wonder what it would be like to live in a house such as this... I hope it's a warm climate. I like the texture you added to it. :)
