Homeowners Chuchay and Ian Antonio live in a 240sqm property in a family compound. The home was built in the 80s and it was recently renovated to make it more open and spacious. The wall separating the living and dining areas and the wall separating the living area and the entryway were torn down for a bigger and brighter space. The rooms are now furnished with old, cherished pieces.
