We shot this house a couple of weeks ago. It just went on air last Friday Nov 11. This house belongs to a young family who inherited the property from their grandparents. The old house was a bungalow that was beyond repair. The new owner decided to tear it down and build a brand new house with a Modern Asian/Filipino feel. The architect, John A. Pineda, and the interior designer, Sophia Ojeda-Llige saved as much of the old materials as they could and reused them in the new structure like carved Narra balusters and dividers and huge doors. They also used solar tube panels for skylights in the upper level.
The house was built for entertaining and hosting huge family gatherings. As part of the deal, the owners promised to host Sunday lunches every single week for their extended family. There is a beautiful large kitchen with generous counter space to hold all the buffet menu. Frameless glass sliding doors connect the living area to the dining room and then to the lanai. I’m loving the indoor-outdoor living thing happening in this house. Sophia Llige did a great job using a lot of the owner’s heirloom pieces and giving them a younger fresher feel.
Unfortunately we don’t have any photos of the master bedroom’s en suite. It has this huge glass window theatrical rolling blind thing going on. It was incredible. Hope you enjoy the photos. Most shots were taken by Manny Segunto using my old Ricoh.
