But rarely do we take notice of how beautiful and dramatic the exterior facades of their home are. So we’ve rounded up a few of the striking architectural exteriors of some of the most popular celebs in the country.

With the help of his dad, actor Derek Ramsay had a stark, modern, glass house built in lieu of the traditional tropical beach house. “We could have built a concrete house, but why?

Kobe and Andre Paras’s father Benjie Paras acquired the property more than a decade ago. The façade sports horizontal, linear lines, and the actor admits that maintaining the light color can be challenging. “Very light, parang off-white. Ang mahirap pag off-white sa labas, parang every how many years kailangan mong i-repaint,” he says.
