The idea of vertical living, with all the advantages and more of an urban townhouse, is realized by allowing for generous spaces, day lighting and ventilation on all four faces of the property. Envisioned as a stack of flats, the structure showcases this individuality by providing each and every unit with a different floor plate. Each unit occupies its own floor that centers around a living and dining suite bounded by full-height floor to ceiling windows.
This suite opens up to a luxurious veranda that provides a unique setting for both private moments and social gatherings. This personal yet very open space, coupled with a generous use of glass, allows for a blurring of the indoor and outdoor and creates an intimate affinity with the sky. In form, the verandas sweep in and out creating a friendlier and more welcoming profile with its soft curves and clean flowing profile. This distinct profile coupled with its slight scale works with the surrounding streetscape by not dominating and overpowering it, but instead by creating a landmark and waypoint in this uniquely organic urban setting.
A setting that exists only in this location, where shopfronts and pedestrian strips have grown organically and distinctively, catering to the whims and needs of a decidedly upmarket urban community, delivering a distinctly unique proposition of all that you would want or need in an urban home.Location: San Juan City, Metro Manila, Philippines
