While others in the comments section suggest that centralized air conditioning system are much more efficient than of those window type air conditioning unit, "It looks like a design intent for the building's facade, which reminds me of a brutalist style architecture. Perhaps this is an old structure, were centralized AC are not yet a thing in the Philippines. I used to live in metro manila three years ago and I'd say that those new SMDC residential buildings doesn't have exposed window-type AC and instead what it has is, I'm guessing, a centralized AC, which is a more practical and convenient HVAC systems for large buildings," another one said.

"These units require power and generate heat. This leads to more global warming. This leads in turn to the need of more air conditioning. We need to break the cycle.
