September 2018 - Native Narrative on CNN discussing three upcoming Learning Centers for Filipino Children in rural areas.

About Native Narrative

We believe considered architectural design raises standards of living and should be accessible for everyone.

This is why we specialise in design development and construction of prototypes and building concepts. Well designed buildings that can be easily duplicated, aiming to raise standards of living and strengthen communities around the world.

We collaborate with Charities, NGO's, local Universities and Governments from the start of the design process & strives for region-influenced design while creating employment opportunities along the way.
