This is a renovation project of a 2-level commercial building in Iligan. The design improvements are primarily meant to enhance fire safety and overall building facade. Considering the prominent location, this upgrade is expected to attract new merchants or locators to occupy the ground and upper floors.
Materials are primarily ACP or aluminum composite panel. The high canopy accent is of painted steel sections. The glass are made of various muted tints to create an interesting pattern of low saturation.
Staircase is designed by Doc Carlito Talaboc of Iligan City. A bit interesting how a dead-form method cleverly merges with the web-truss stringer. It’s a rare installation to see nowadays, at least as far as the author is concerned.
