Wood Architecture of Philippines

The neighborhoods here are laid out in quadrants, blocks, and very organized. There are older wood building scattered around the area, mostly along the river or streams.

This building has a protruding top area, which is covered by bamboo slats; the building is made of wood. 90 percent or more of the building in this area are of concrete or concrete block with a splattering of cement on the block to make smooth.

The bottom has a beveled area and protrudes out.

The bamboo slat are not for mosquitoes, I wonder if for animals, or why, it is a window, yet not able to open, or I cannot see how. Many times a window is opened and people will hang clothes outside, however not here.
