Batasan Hills is in need for a new Barangay Center, they have a new site of 2500 square meters, where they hope to have a seven floor structure with plenty of park space and a more improved organization. They hope to have the bottom three floors rented out as commercial space, where the center can receive its income. Then the top four floors accommodating all the services that exist in their current Community Center, and several other things in addition. Our job would be to provide them with a conceptual design for this Center, where we hope we can be sensitive to all their specific needs and wants. Capt. Rannie hopes to start construction on this new Barangay Center by June 2007.
Also in Batasan Hills, Pastor Choy has abandoned his whole life to live in the slums with gangster youths in order to reform their lives, to lives of meaning and purpose. He has been living there for several years now, and has gained their trust. Through a youth center and church he has made a difference in alot of young lives, and more to come.

The pictures are worth a thousand words. Keep up the great work.
Rannie is looking for loans from local banks. The building will also have commercial space, so he will get money from the businesses that want to set up there. I don't know how it works beyond that.
The building has not yet been started, and it's very unlikely we will take a role in the actual construction.. we will do the preliminary design - planning out the spaces, suggesting a form for the building, identifying the most important aspects that need to be considered in design.
just a tip, please keep an eye to those ilegal wire connection, we all know it's rampant esp in Sitio 1 basketball court area...
