Transforming a rundown 70s bungalow was a challenge Marvin Agustin faced when he rented a property in White Plains, Quezon City. But the house’s good structure and bright garden encouraged the actor and restaurateur to take on the renovation. 

Because he owns restaurants—Marciano’s, John and Yoko, and Mr. Kurosawa—which all have distinct interiors, the kapamilya star didn’t have a hard time looking for help to renovate the place. The task fell on architect Cathy Saldaña, who co-designed Marvin’s restaurants.

The house design followed the sleek and masculine theme of Marvin’s previous condominium in Mandaluyong. This vision was realized in timeless pieces of furniture that go well with the house’s retro structure. Subtle and unassuming works from famous artists are paired with statement plants, including sculptural yucca trees that lend a tropical feel.
