This Build & Sell Residential Project is tucked in a premiere village in Cebu City. Commissioned by the Tajanlangit Family for their Real Estate business, ACE Design Studio had two design challenges to solve for the client. The first is to convince the client to take a cleaner and fresher approach on design. Dominated by the onslaught of Mediterranean houses at that time, the structure stood out and eventually became an iconic part of Eagle Street, the main roadway of the village. Because it was on the main roadway with heavy foot and road traffic, privacy was an important issue. Design tricks such as reflective glass was used to give future owners the privacy they needed while still making the interior feel open and homey. The second challenge was to marry quality and maximum return. Because it was a Build & Sell Residential Project, the client expressed the need for materials to be of high-quality competitive in the Real Estate Market without necessarily breaking the bank. The modern minimalist approach worked to its advantage by eliminating the need for mouldings, cornices, roof tiles and other add-ons that a Mediterranean design would normally have, replacing it rather with clean lines that are both aesthetically-pleasing and functional. This residence was sold and is currently home to a four-member family.
