The Bahay Kubo or nipa hut has long been recognized as a national house symbol of the Philippines. This was chosen as the national house because this style of the house is truly an icon of the Philippine culture. You’ll find a nipa hut across the country, particularly in rural areas. Yet many urban barangays also have a lot of nipa huts.

These days, however, it is not uncommon to see a Bahay Kubo with modern modifications to make the flimsy structure more durable and long-lasting.

In this modern Bahay Kubo, a concrete base provides a sturdy foundation to the house that keeps it less prone to damage during minor floods. This also puts the house at a higher level and protects it from damage caused by termites.
