it's still in the proposal stage but from what I've read in the local forum, it has the backing of the city mayor and local government. They just need to present this properly and get the approval of the National Heritage Council, which is a bastion of nimbyism lol

Restoration and Redevelopment of Army & Navy Club

PALAFOX ASSOCIATES ON THE ARMY AND NAVY CLUB RESTORATION

Project Synopsis
Palafox Associates, through its Architecture group, Palafox Architecture, was awarded the rights to propose designs for the restoration of the long neglected national historical landmark, the Army and Navy Club, in March 2014. Spearheaded by Principal Architect-Urban Planner Felino Palafox, Jr., the firm’s architects and designers created three alternative design solutions. These were presented to the client, Oceanville Hotel and Spa Corporation one month after they awarded the project to the firm. The other consultants for the project are AMH Philippines (Structural), Guevarra and Partners (Plumbing, Mechanical and Fire Protection), FFMJ Electrical Services (Electrical), TAJARA (Leisure and Hospitality Consultant) and Acropolis (Kitchen Consultant).

Given the building’s status as one of the country’s early examples of Neocolonial revival architecture style during the American occupation, it was decided that the adaptive resuse is the best solution to preserve the building’s historical integrity by complete restoration and redeveloping it into a boutique hotel, which will give respect to the building’s historical significance, revitalize the surrounding area, and add value to the decade-long neglected area.

Project background
Built in 1910 and completed in a year, the Army and Navy Club is one of the first landmark buildings built along Dewey Boulevard (now Roxas Boulevard). The three-storey building served as the exclusive club for American military officers during the American occupation. Architect William Parsons, Daniel Burnham’s protege, provided the architectural design, as well as the Elks Lodge building next to it.

The Army and Navy Club, located along South Boulevard in Ermita, Manila is considered by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) a Level 1 National Historical Landmark. During World War II, the Club was used as a bomb shelter and an evacuation center. After World War II, the building underwent a restoration and was adaptively reused as the Museo ng Maynila in the 1990s, complementing the neighboring Elks Lodge, which became the Museo Pambata. After the Museo ng Maynila relocated to another location in the early 2000s, the bulding fell into neglect.

After thirty years of neglect and deterioration, the Army and Navy Club will be restored to its former glory through good design, architecture, rehabilitation, and redevelopment.

Current state of the building
Since early 2007, the local government of Manila planned a full restoration of the building. Unfortunately, it was shelved due to lack of funds and politics. The deterioration of the building went unchecked until its closure.

The NHCP has recently approved the dismantling of the ancillary areas near the building to prevent accidents from occuring at the site. The building itself is abound with perilous and unusable fixtures/materials such as dilapidated windows, roof, and doors. Upon the firm’s site visits, advanced deterioration of the building’s structure were found.

The White House building in Washington, D.C. has undergone several changes (the biggest alterations done between 1948-1952) similar to what is planned for the Army and Navy. Similar defects were found in the Army and Navy structure like those found in the White House renovation, among them:
• Overall structure declared by structural engineers to be in imminent danger of collapsing
• The ceiling slabs sagging were found to be sagging
• The building’s supporting bricks on the walls are collapsing
• Ground floor slabs found to be sinking
• Disintegrating concrete beams and columns due to prolonged exposure to the outside environment
• Perennial flooding in the building’s underground space caused by age-weakened plumbing

Proposed design solution
The new developer Oceanville intends to transform the building into a five-star boutique hotel with complete amenities which is compatible to the original building’s use, where its upper floors were used for accommodation. Palafox Associates’ vision is to restore the building to its former grandeur, focusing on the city’s rich and colorful cultural legacy, weave function around the buliding’s structure, and enhance the Army and Navy Club as an important historical and cultural landmark, providing a visually exciting space for people to live, shop, dine, and play.

Boutique hotels housed in heritage buildings, defined by their small size and distinctive personality, have become extremely popular in recent years. In order to maintain the unique character and features of the Army and Navy building, the building renovation will be similar to what was done to the White House in Washington, USA from 1948 to 1952, where the slabs, columns, and beams were removed, only retaining the outer skin of the building. Called ‘facadism’ or ‘gut renovation,’ this type of redevelopment technically leaves only the outer shell and creates a new interior that either melds the original architectural design elements with a more contemporary one, or simply create a fresh, contemporary design that addresses its new intended function.

Palafox Associates has prepared five design alternatives.The first two is either to do nothing or to demolish, which we found not to be viable options given the present condition of the Army and Navy Club. Something must be done to restore the cannibalized heritage building being used as a bodega or storage. We owe it to the original planner Daniel Burnham and architect William Parsons to restore or build back better, safer, smarter, and more sustainable the Army and Navy Club. The next three design solutions are centered on proper restoration and preservation of the arts, culture, and history.

The Army and Navy Club restoration plans involve retaining the original beams and columns by retrofitting them while the floor slabs will either be pre-cast or reinforced concrete. The building’s structural members will be retrofitted and refurbished with new, durable, and sustainable technology and materials.

Fenestrations of the façade will be improved, enhanced and will not in a way detach from its original design of William Parsons. The firm will comply with the restoration guidelines of the National Historical Commission of the Philippines and will prioritize the protection and enhancement of the environment and heritage of the building. Adding a contemporary layer to the structure will create more value to the building in the future.

Advantages of the restoration project
Restoration and Adaptive reuse can cost more than demolishing a structure and starting from the ground up, but the environmental benefits, social advantages, and economic benefits of recycling a valued heritage is more rewarding in the long-run.

• Environmental
The main environmental benefits of reusing buildings is the retention of the original building’s ‘embodied energy,’ the energy consumed by all of the processes associated with the production of the building and therefore restore the heritage significance of a historic building. Instead of building more structures, adaptive reuse / restoration is often seen as more practical measure.
• Social
As communities increasingly recognize the need to protect, retain, and adapt heritage buildings into accessible, usable spaces. The building’s location, access, and public transport availability creates a great opportunity for citizens to rediscover their city’s gems and develop a greater appreciation of our rich and diverse culture and architecture. The special experience of staying somewhere believed to be full of character and history appeals to many tourists, particularly those seeking a deeper
engagement with destination culture

• Economic
Tourism is one of the major economic growth drivers in the Philippines. Heritage tours in the Philippines has seen a dramatic increase in the past decades and will continue to do so as old cities get revamped and restored as an alternative solution to gentrification. Moreover, historical building restoration starts a domino effect by increasing property values, additional income to the city, generating more jobs and revitalizing the surrounding area. The Heritage Conservation Society (HCS) is finetuning a law that would give tax incentives for owners of heritage buildings, homes, and other structures that would undergo adaptive reuse.

Project Architect background in restoration architecture
The firm has long been known for its advocacies towards sustainable and environment-friendly architecture, planning, and design practices. Palafox Associates has been involved the historical redevelopment of the Manila Polo Club whose original architect was National Artist Pablo Antonio and the Novartis building, originally designed by Leandro Locsin. In both cases, the firm won the design competition to rehabilitate, retrofit, and create adaptive reuse designs.

For the Vigan heritage project in Ilocos Norte, the firm worked closely with a restoration architect from Italy funded by the European Union. For the Metro Ilocos Tourism Master Plan, the firm developed an adaptive reuse and urban renewal plan for the vicinity of the Paoay Church.

Palafox Associates is founded by Principal Architect and Urban Planner Felino Palafox, Jr. in 1989. Palafox Associates has been involved more than 1,000 projects in 38 countries for the past 25 years.
